Hopefully someone can help me with allergy questions. Even if it's just one person who can give me advice it would help so much. I'm actually a little scared worried at the moment because I rarely get allergies and something weird is happening.
Okay so here goes. I'm a healthy female in my 30's. The only thing in my life that I'm aware of that I'm severely allergic to are cats. Now here's how it all started. Yesterday I decided to cook ramen noodles. And also a family member had cooked some kind of fish earlier that day (looked like catfish but wasn't). So I decided to cook my ramen noodles and put that cooked fish on top of my ramen. I ate that meal around 1 PM and felt fine afterwards. Until night time when it was about 7 PM -8PM. I started to feel a tingly itch around my neck and upper shoulder. I had my laptop on as well (watching a TV show). It happened while I was sitting down watching the show on my laptop. The itch came out of no where and I knew the itch felt a little weird but at the same time I felt like it wasn't a big deal so I didn't think much of it. Then later I ate a cherry pie. Still I felt fine and didn't care to look in the mirror. But around 9-10Pm I started to notice it was really red and I could see "welts" or bumps raised on my skin around the neck and shoulder. I could also see the hives have also spread around my left boob (mostly under the boob) but it also had "welts aka raised bumps" there as well. And no where else on my body.
Today (Jan/27/2020). I woke up and most of it was GONE. My skin was back to normal. The only thing left was redness around my neck and shoulders but most of it was just clear. Same with my boob area all clear. Now later in the day which is today (Jan 27/2020)...I ate pistachios (I've eaten them numerous times in my life) and never had allergies from them. But I ate about 4 of them and started to get a huge bump (like a hives type bump) on the corner of my mouth. Then I applied Calamine lotion and it was gone (quickly). I had also eaten a small bag of Doritos today and the same thing happened. Except worse the bump was on my mouth and all over my forehead (looking life hives with welts). I eaten doritos all my life as well just like nuts and have never had this issue. Also I'm noticing the hives mostly break out when it turns into night time. Just like when it all started yesterday.
Anyone know what this could be? I've never had food allergies in my life and I'm in my 30's. But I guess it could be? I would also like to point out something that's outside the box. And it might sound very weird! But all this time that I had hives breaking out on my neck, shoulder, mouth, face. I had my LAPTOP ON....I've read stories of people getting hives from all kinds of things. Just read that a woman got hives because her body has an allergic reaction to the cold weather. Could it be that it's my laptop that's making me break out in hives? I know that sometimes my laptop makes me sneeze or itch around the nose in the past. Could be some kind of chemical fume coming out of my laptop...I'm not sure what they call it for laptops. Sometimes you can smell a certain scent from laptops. Mine is an old Dell at the moment.
If anyone can help out with some advice, ideas of what this could be....I definitely would love the help. It's like one minute the hives appear, then they disappear...it's very on and off. My other thoughts is that my immune system may have been thrown of kilter gone down. Maybe caused by stress, which I've had a lot of this for the past 2 weeks. Though It still doesn't explain why I get the hives mostly AT NIGHT.
