    Oats contain a protein called avenin, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people. A person who has eaten oats can sometimes feel unwell and experience the symptoms of an oat allergy.

    You might be allergic to something in the recipe because oat meal itself does not make many people sick but is often something safe to eat for people who are sick. However some people are allergic to oats.

    Takeaway. Sensitivity or allergy to oats is uncommon. People with these conditions have an immune system reaction to avenin, a protein found in oats. People who are sensitive to gluten, such as those with celiac disease, may also react adversely to oats due to cross-contamination of products.

    Oatmeal does no ACTION.......... Not enough information

    no SPECIFICS  of the symptoms of " SICK "  was given  to play detective

       those living do action

    as to a human body response to oatmeal

    an Oat allergy is NOT common

      but can  occur in humans  at any age

    an allergy to Oats  might result in symptoms from mild to severe  ,

    such as a blotchy irritated itchy skin ,

    a rash or skin irritation  on or in the mouth ,

    a runny nose  after eating a bowl of oatmeal  may be a  sensitivity to a PROTEIN found in oats  called AVERNIN  also  chronic  oat sensativity can cause  stomach irritation diarrhea fatique

    one may NOT be allergic to Oats

      but rather have a GLUTEN  sensitivity  or Celiac Disease

    GLUTEN is a protein found in WHEAT 

    . oats do not have  GLUTEN , but  they are often grown and processed  in facilities  that do 

    additionally   is MILK  being put on the oatmeal

    might be a lactose  sensitivity not the oatmeal   people with a oat allergy may  experience SKIN reaction  in products such as  lotions and soaps facial masks   that contain colloidal  oatmeal ..... get tested  a person can purchase at home allergy test kits   (  less expensive ) or see a dermatologist

    .. feel better soon

    I can't possibly know. But there is no reason to continue to eat it. If it helps, I cannot eat commercial salad dressing. I don't know what is in it or why, but it wreaks havoc with my body.

    Your stomach just must not like it.

    because you keep eating it?? If something makes you sick, don't eat it.  It could be anything from being allergic to an ingredient you put on it or simply a coincidence.
