There are other allergies out there but lets talk about food allergies. Is anyone allergic to certain foods or knows anyone with a food allergies. I'm allergic to anything with peanuts and turkey. On turkey day my grandmother makes ca special pan of dressing for me because I can't get turkeys. When I eat peanuts and turkey I breakout really bad all over. When I was younger I would sneak and eat butterfingers, reeses cups and snickers and then pay for it later :(

I am allergic to strawberries, real and artificial. I get mega hives everywhere, and get them very badly on the back of my throat, and they swell to, the point it's hard to breath. Sad thing is, I really like strawberries. My kids love them, and as I still let them have strawberries, strawberry syrup, and candy, I just have to wear rubber gloves while messing around with it or boom, i'm broke out with hives. Those I can handle, it's the ones when I get something that has strawberry in it, and eat it and my throat starts swelling... makes me mad because alot of people cook with strawberries.

I'm allergic to prawns and crabs. Such a pity because they taste so good and I can't eat them or I'll get red all over.

It's too bad about the allergies to peanuts and turkey. I have heard many children with peanut allergies lately though. What a wonderful grandmother you have to make something just for you on Thanksgiving!

Oh yes! I am susceptible to food allergies. The usual is any kind of dish with chicken, eggs, shrimp, but mostly seafoods. Unfortunately, i love those kinds and it is so bad that I have to limit my intakes if not I would be like a cooked shrimp getting red, palpitating or if it is mild allergies, just a few rashes in my skin.

To the best of my knowledge I do not have any allergies food or otherwise. So far neither do my kids. One of my brother's kids has a suspected allergy to Red dye. If she eats anything with red dye in it she is bouncing off the walls.
