Eat tomatoes and verify whether you are allergic to them or not. If you are allergic you can desensitize to tomatoes. To desensitize, eat a slice or one small tomato daily.

Gluten/lactose intolerance can cause damage to intestinal mucosa and foods containing gluten and milk products to be avoided.

There is no relation between tomato, gluten/lactose.
