Im very allergic to dust. So i take lots of precautionary measures before sleeping. I have some cetrizine tablet daily. This keeps off from dust. Iam in chennai one of the most dusty city. Its a metropolitan city and you can expect how much it will be. But i feel here very comfortable here than in my native which is very cold. Share ur thoughts about the allergies you have and what u do to stop them....

Hi, you face a similar problem as mine.Many people are getting allergic now adays. It has become a common problem you see! I think this is all because of various forms of pollutions happening around us. Be it induatrial gases, or traffic pollution, dust at home, contraction of other people's illnesses, etc.All these are so extremely harmful and in some way a bit poisonous too! We need to keep regular check on cleanliness around us.While you are suting your house, be sure to wear a mask. Drink lots of water, warm if possible.This will flush out all the oxidants.Check out if you are also allergic to some food products.I am allergic to banana.If a catch cold, i have to compulsorily avoid it as it triggers my allergic infection. I am suffering from sinus for 12 months.Also dont' make much use of nasal drops as it might worsen the situation in long run and you might get addicted to it.Allergy varies from person to person depending upon te body constituents and regular habits.At last but very very important,regular cardio exercise will lessen the allergic infections.Trust me, its my experience.

I have a nasal allergy, But i didn't get tested for the allergens. I have moved to a city two years back and it is since then that i suffer from it, Here most people suffer from the same and it is due to the dust here. I have got operated for sinusitis very recently for the reason

I get slight seasonal allergies when the weather changes. Dust that has been sitting makes me sneeze. I also am allergic to a few trees that are outside. I recently found out that I am allergic to Sulfur. This makes my skin itch very bad!!

I am allergic to cats. And it's really bad. At Christmas, my mom's side of the family gathered to celebrate at my uncle's, who has a cat. By the end of the evening, I couldn't stay in the house for more than two to three minutes, as I simply couldn't breathe. My nieces have a cat too, and last time I saw them, I got allergic as the cat's fur and stuff was on their clothes. That's how bad it is. I'm glad I'm only allergic to one thing.

I am basically allergic to anything that cleans. All types of soaps, shampoo, laundry detergent and the like. Some don't bother me as much as others so i have to hunt to find ones that don't burn me. I also can't use bubble bath. I am also allergic to something in ambien because it makes me hallucinate. I also have seasonal allergies.

I'm allergic to shrimp. Whenever I ate one, I felt the itch on my lips down to my throat... In a matter of minutes, my skin itch and started to have urticaria. And I also develop difficulty of breathing... It's deadly!!! It's an anaphylactic reaction that can lead to shock. To my fear of experiencing such thing, I prevent to eat shrimp. I'm also allergic to dust but not to the point that I should take medication... It's a short term allergy. I have allergicrhinitis. I'm sensitive to dust, cold whether that I sneeze a lot... LOL!!!

I have lots of allergies. Not so much recently but when I was a baby, my Mom told me that I was allergic to Johnson's baby products like the shampoo and powder. My skin was very sensitive, still is but at least I think Ive developed some immunity from most of the allergies. During childhood, like maybe 3 to 5, something like that, I was allergic to chocolates. Too bad for me I love the stuff. Good thing though is that I seem to have overcome that allergy. A big feat for a big chocolate lover like me. Im also allergic to seafood like shrimp, crabs, and lobsters. Just those kinds of crustaceans. I only eat a bit of it these days just to make my body accustomed to the taste and the chemicals inside them that will prevent me from having allergic outbreaks. The most common and probably the most annoying allergy I have would be from dust. Right now Im itching all over because I cleaned my room from top to bottom and boy, was there dust!
