I lived in Belize for several years and was bitten by ticks on at
least a weekly basis. About a year ago I developed the symptoms
you mention. After eating beef or pork about 4 hours later I
developed an itching hives type rash. This developed into
chest and throat constriction and such. It reduced as I drank
cold water and took benedril.
I would be interested to know if and when this allergy will reduce
to where I can eat red meat again.
