I am allergic to drugs. How terrible could it get! Every time, I take some medicine I have to pop in anti allergic pills! And since you may have to take it anytime of the day it gets difficult at times. You cannot even doze off in the office! Are you allergic to any food stuff or pollens, drugs or dust?

I am not allergic to anything. Once I had to take my boyfriend to the hospital because he took Pamprin...Yes Pamprin..the anti-cramping medicine that is for women during that special time of month. He thought he was being cute and then we was in the hospital hooked up to a breathing machine. Of course it all ended up alright however, something with in the medicine is what he was allergic to. My cousin is allergic to grass. I wonder what life would be like to not be able to roll in the grass??

There are only two things that I know of that I'm allergic to: spider venom and Eucalyptus flowers. There were a LOT of Eucalyptus trees on the college campus where I went to school, and every spring they would make my eyes and nose run something awful. It is a great wonder that I did not just move away and attend a different school. Oh, well. That is all water over the dam now.

Oh, I've never been bitten by a poisonous one, but any spider bite makes a huge red lump that drives me wacky for up to 2 weeks.

help!!(t_t) - Flee bite photo.

Mine are smaller and covers both of my legs and feet, plus some spots on my arms.(T_T)
Oh my! This discussion has not come at a better time. Ill explain later. Yeah, Im allergic to crustaceans, more specifically crabs. I havent tried lobster so Im not sure if Im also allergic to it. Are shrimps considered as a crustacean? I really dont think so, but anyway, Im allergic to that to but at least over the years Ive developed immunity to it by gradual exposure. Same thing with the crabs but I really dont go overboard with them. I just eat small portions of it just to be sure and to prevent another outbreak in case that ever happens again. When I was a baby I was allergic to Johnson$Johnson baby shampoo. I loved the smell of it too but Id have rashes on my neck after using it. I used to be allergic to chocolate to. Luckily I got over this allergy cause I simply cannot give up and pass up chocolate. Yum!^_^ Anyway, back to my first statement..you see, Im currently suffering from a bad case of flea bite allergy. A few days ago I only had those marks on my feet, I scratched them cause they were very itchy then I guess I scratched too hard cause the next day it got wounded.tsk3 I just thought they were rashes from somewhere. But 2 days after, they red marks spread to both of my legs! I thought it was chicken pox(never had it) so I searched for it on the net just to make sure on what they looked like. Gladly, it wasnt the pox. Now, on its 4th day, they're now spreading to my arms! That's when I knew it was flea bites. I was playing with my pets the day it all started. The bites are itching like crazy!! I can only keep myself from scratching them and boy am I losing. Ive already put medicine on the bites and used another chair just to be sure. Im hoping that these wont leave scars when it heals.(T_T)

I developed an allergic reaction to penicillin after I gave birth. Kind of odd, don't you think?

I don't think it's so odd. A lot of people are allergic to penicillin. You need to let your doctor know that you are allergic to it anytime you go to his/her office. Sometimes they will ask you if you're allergic to it before they write you a prescription. Hope you are doing well and happy mylotting! Kathy.

A lot of people are allergic to certain kinds of odors. I used to sell Avon. That's how I know this. Some people can't use certain kinds of cologne because it gives them a headache. Other people can't be around people with certain kinds of cologne on. I have a lot of allergies but cologne is one thing I'm glad I'm not allergic to. I love wearing cologne. Incense gives me a headache but would believe I still like to burn it sometimes?It sounds like to me that you're allergic to all kinds of odors. Happy mylotting! Kathy.

I am not allergic to anything, or if I am I have not come in contact with it yet. My middle son is allergic to a certain type of antibiotic but other than that my kids arent allergic to anything either.

I used to be allercic to bee stings and antibiotics when I was little. I have grown out of them both. I'm still cautious because these allergies can always some back but as for now I'm not to either. I think I have a slight allergy to pllon or something because in the Spring and sometimes in the summer I get the sniffles.

I am not really into allergy mimpi, but I can't stand with dust, I sneeze like a hundred times when a place is so dusty, I think I wont categorically say that it is an allergy since I don't have itchiness or red stuff in the skin or something just sneezing, well, I don't know exactly if its allergy. I don't take pills when I have those I just get away immediately at the place or cover my mouth and nose all the time when I can't help to go out !

I must say I am blessed in the sense that I am not allergic to anything. I know a good friend who is allergic to seafood. A few years ago, I hired a maid in my home, and she was allergic to chicken and eggs. She didn't tell us at the point of hiring, and only disclosed this 3 months later, when her probation was just over. She will get rashes on her hands and legs if she eats chicken and eggs. Her allergy gave us quite a bit of a headache, because many things we eat weekly in our usual meals either has chicken or eggs in them. We had quite a lot of difficulty juggling with our menu to either cater to her allergy by eating less of foods that affect her, or we buy other stuff for her that she can eat.

i am really not sure what I am allergic to. But just recently, well several months ago and it is still occuring now, I've been sneezing every single morning and if i am not sneezing it is not me. Maybe I am allergic to dust. I am not sure. But I feel like I've wrap alot of "wantons" with the tissues I've been using for my nose every morning. I asked my doctor about this and he said it was allergy season. I am not sure about that. I've been having this with me ever since september and i can tell you it is not that simple.

Not that I'm aware of! I once had a Doctor tell me that I have an "adverse reaction to penicillin" so for many years I was taking some other crap whenever I had to take antibiotics, but I ended up buying penicillin over the counter when there was little else available one time and nothing "adverse" happened, so it appears it was a misdiagnosis. I'm mentally allergic to rhubarb though!

Mentally! Coming to that the thought of creepy crawlies give me an allergic attack mentally. My mom thinks I am paranoiac.

Handling fish makes my hands itch and eating crab makes my lips itch a bit but other than that I'm pretty good! I don't take medicine if I can help it and I'm sorry it makes you poorly, even non-drousy benelin (cough syrup) for kids makes me sleepy so I try to avoid anything that is not natural, lol.

Hi mimpi!I am allergic to dust.Get wheezing when exposed to it . I am also allergic to aniseed.Here in India we have the custom of chewing aniseed after meals.That causes swelling in my mouth which persists for couple of days.So I avoid eating aniseed.But when it is added to any dish it does not cause these symptoms.
