Has anyone heard of an allergy where cayenne pepper makes your nose itch?
Everytime I eat a dish with cayenne pepper--or it is hot chile peppers?--my nose starts itching furiously about 10 minutes later. It's really unpleasant. And yet, I love eating out--and almost every thai, indian, and italian restaurant uses cayenne. Does anyone else have this allergy or know someone who does? is there any antidote?
