According to the history you reported, in the occasion of cipro infusion you had an anafilaxis: your body over-reacted against that medication.
The orticarioid reactions you are experiencing are signs of allergies that are likely related to cross reaction to your cipro allergy.
This means that such kind of food in your case may have some allergens in common with cipro, which evocate a crossing reaction, leading your immunitary system to over-react against it.
