I was just diagnosed with alpha gal red meat food

I was just diagnosed with alpha gal red meat food allergy after a tick bite and I'm not entirely sure how i feel about it, Im told it can be as bad as me going into Anaphylactic Shock but all off that from a tick bite? How can one tick cause this much trouble and how bad can it actually get.

The skin around my anus has become itchy...for several weeks. Upon inspecction this evening I noticed that I m losing pigmentation of my skin in that area. I have been diagnosed recently with several other conditions...alopecia areata, hashimoto thyroiditis, and alpha gal. Could any of these be the cause for this? What can be done to get rid of the itchiness? Preparation H and Witch Hazel don t seem to help much.

I get hemorrhoids fairly frequently. I eat a pretty healthy diet with a good amount of fiber and just about all natural foods. However, I have noticed that the hemorrhoids tend to show up the day after I have red meat (maybe once every 7-10 days). Is there a correlation?

My husband recently was diagnosed with having red meat allergy due to a tick bite. His body reacts with hives. He has given up all red meats 4 months now, and still has hive outbreaks. We are trying to figure out if he could have other types of food allergies, like dairy, foods with red dies ...He has an allergist appt this week for more testing, but wanted to try to have more info for the allergist to test for.
