Allium allergy
I have been diagnosed, by a consultant allergy specialist within the UK, as having severe allergy to the allium family. My syptoms are mainly neurological and respiratory but I have noticed that this last anaphylactic episode has left me with GI symptoms as well. I am inhaltion sensitive making management of this allergy difficult. I carry 4 epipens, anti histamine and steroids at all times. I also take Fexofenadine and Montelukast tablets daily. The reaction seems stronger and quicker to garlic - an anaphylatic reaction and lesser to aloe vera - which only gives me face swelling and redness.
Is there any way to lessen the increasing and debilitating allergic reaction? Someone has suggested hypnosis but I  do not think this is a way forward as this seems to be a physiological problem. I am open to suggestions which I will ask my consultant about.
Can anyone out there in the medical community give any help please?
I am a 57 year old professional woman with a medical and psychotherapeutic background.

I would be devastated if I were allergic to garlic. I LOVE IT!

The allium family consists of garlic, onions, shallots, leeks and chives. And probably more than I am aware of.
