I am allergic to certain varieties of wheat products and also some preservatives. I get severe rashes and hives all over the body. In extreme cases it has become life threatening with BP and pulse rate dropping to very low levels and have fallen unconscious at times. Advice me correct course of diagnosis and treatment.

Hi,
      allergy to foods  means your immune system becomes hyperactive when you consume the foods which are allergic to you.
first thing is avoid foods which are allergic to you.
second is allergy specialists are there . you contact  them , they will do test for all the foods and they will diagnose for which substance you are allergic
and they will give treatment for that substance (immunotherapy.) the test called as patch test.
treatment is also not costly.  but you have
take for 2 to 3 years. once a week .
first you consult dermatologist they will suggest where to go.
and daily 30 minute exercise will help you .
