Baker's Asthma caused by baker's yeast.?

I've been diagnosed with baker's asthma, have been away from bakery dust for 7 weeks, and just as you predicted in your response to my previous question, my recovery has been dramatic during the first three months.
I've tested positive to baker's yeast. Should I avoid eating it.? Can the smell of an item after cooking aggravate lungs., if it's still warm, after it's cooled.? Any reading material suggestions would be appreciated.
This website has been a god-sent. I've recommended it to my doctors.:) Thank you, Kim

Workers with bakers asthma can eat bread without problems. As far as I know there is no reading material about this. It is probably because the wheat and enzyme antigens (the things you are allergic to) get degraded by the stomach acids and enzymes. The same is not true of some workers making drugs (such as antibiotics) to which they become allergic. Taking the drug by mouth can cause both abdominal pain and diarrhoea, as well as asthma
