Allergic reaction to MCT oil.

I have use capsule form of MCT oil and decided to save money by ordering the large bottle of liquid. I used it for a while, (a tablespoon in my coffee every morning) and stopped. I began using it again and soon had a large bumpy patch at the base of my neck and toward my shoulder. It took me a while to make the connection. It cleared up some and I used the oil again to see if that were it, and it flared up again, as well as another spot on my stomach. I quit using it, but after 2 weeks, still itching terribly, mostly at night. I've been using Benadryl cream that helps. After looking up more about this, I noticed another person was eating nuts and feels the oil made her allergic to them. I had been eating cashews, that I've never been allergic too, all this time. I'm not sure if it was just the oil I became allergic to or it made me allergic to cashews, which I hope not, but right now, I'm just trying to get rid of this itching.
