Ethan, it sounds like you also suspect an allergy. I have to agree that from this side of the screen it definitely does sound like some sort of allergy too. The easiest would be to have blood take to find out whether it is an allergy or not. If your IgE count is high, it will mean that you can take anti-histamines until you’ve figured out what you’re allergic to. If it’s normal, you will have to look at different causes. Good luck.
