Probably. If your lips are also swollen that's another likely sign of an allergy. Take a look at the exact ingredients, and note them down in case it happens again. It may be to do with the type of cheese or ham, how it is made or even just how strong the cheese is.
Happens to me all of the time with fresh cherries or apples. Drives me crazy but, I can't stop eating them!
I'd look at the egg first. I've never been allergic to eggs, but recently I've noticed that eggs over easy make my lips start to itch. Tasting cake batter made with eggs does the same thing. Just began over the last year or so. Boiled eggs don't make me itch.
Does your face hurt?
...cause it's killin' me!
Thank you, thank you very much :). I'm here all week.
I get it in the hay fever season. Most likely an allergic reaction.
Allergies can be triggered at any time in life.
Cool, I'm not the only one...
I have allergies too (pollens...), so in the spring and summer months I have trouble eating apples, cherries, peaches.... Grapes and oranges are fine. The roof of my mouth itches and sometimes the back of throat too. This has been happening for decades.
Me too with the pollen.
Melons make my mouth itch, but I dont like them much anyway. :)
could also be a reaction to chemicals in the food.
i get that reaction from certain types of cheeses, nuts and fruits.
pears, pineapple and walnuts for example can cause this reaction for me but not always.
one royal gala apple may burn and one from the next batch is fine.
as far as i know i'm not allergic to anything.
i wonder if its from all of the fake ingredients found in foods these days.... my body is rejecting it and not happy.
all of the presevatives in the ham im sure, if the cheese is nothing but fake oil, and lots of breads today have crap in them...
geez, i wish i could go all natural ...almost vegan.
but i do love me a good steak...
and I CAN tell the difference in all natural open range beef compared to the cheap caged beef....
i am waiting for the day i see this on the menu at MC D's or Burger Queen...
All natural open range beef patties.
100% Whole Wheat buns. HFCS free, trans fat free.

Interesting. See if eating raw onions makes it go away.
snorting wasabi works too.
