What Are You Allergic To?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm allergic to...

1. Avocados. VERY BAD ALLERGY! I can go into anaphaltic shock and die just by touching something that had an avocado on it.
2. Wool. I'd never wear it but even brushing up against something wool gives me hives.
3. Smoke
4. Dust
5. Pollen
6. Tetracycline
7. Fire ant bites. Not enough to kill me, I just swell up and run a fever.
8. Animal cleaning products that contain pesticides. My mom and dad use stuff like that on their dogs (I HATE THAT THEY DO! ) and even being near it makes my asthma act up.

I have asthma, a heart murmur, and endometriosis, along with all these allergies! Maybe I should go live in a bubble?

1. Mushrooms ( I get hives )
2. Pollens (though I'm not sure which ones they are anymore)

I too have asthma and allergies.

Chocolate, strawberries, too much sugar, and I'm thinking I'm allergic to flour/starch-y type stuff and sugars, b/c it doesn't matter what I eat, I always end up stuffed up for at least a few hours after I eat But it's not serious or anything, just makes it a little difficult. I get hives from chocolate, strawberries, and too much sugar. At least it's not like when I was young, I used to get exzema really awful bad, so bad I had to go to a specialist in the city. Weird. Oh well. I'll survive

P.S. I'm also allergic to some kind of pollen stuff but I have no idea what kinds......

I am only allergic to 2 different types of medicine, pennicillan (sp?) and bactrim (something I had once for a uti infection). I don't know of any food or anything else that I am allergic to.

Soy (They used to mix it with the meat in the caferteria at school and in the hamburgers at McDonalds when I was a kid. After a few times of my stomach emptying my parents kept a close watch on the school menu.)

Ragweed. Fall hayfever season sucks royally.

22angel I don't know if it is the same thing but if I eat too much sugar (especially if I'm already having problems it causes problems). According to my alergy doctor there is a yeast that went it building up too high by being fed by sugars cause this reaction. Modifying my diet in the fall also sucks. I hate having to give up sugar and nearly everything related to it.

All tree pollen, grass, dust, dust mites, cats, dogs. I'm allergic to so many things--it's not even funny. When i had my last allergy test the onlt things I didn't have a reaction to were the food items, feathers, and cockroaches.

Wasps and white-faced hornets - needless to say I don't hang around pretty-smelling flowers for very long! My grandparents had a HUGE lilac bush on the corner of their house, and every summer there was a HUGE hornet nest in the oak tree branch that hung over it.

My mom found out the hard way that she's allergic to shellfish, I hope that doesn't ever happen to me! (I love steamed mussels!)

Pineapple
some kind of pollen, I don't know which - all I know is that I have hayfever right now
Rhubarb (I love the stuff, but it makes me so sick)
Dairy products - well not actually allergic, but lactose intolerant.

Bananas. I really like them but come up in a very itchy rash all over my arms.

I have a severe ibuprofin allergy-anaphalactic shock.
Regular allergies to pollen, ragweed, dust, mold...
Lactose intolerant
Garlic and onions make me stuffed up for a couple of days but I still eat them sometimes just because I like them.
I can eat strawberries but if I touch them to the skin on my arms or legs while picking I break out in quite an itchy rash.
Most soaps and fragrance in any lotion or "beauty" product.
Several laundry detergents

Same here-I get bad eczema and itch like the dickens.

I'm sensitive to ginger, it gives me really bad heartburn. I'm also lactose intolerant.

I am allergic to cleaning and excercise! lol, actually I am not allergic to anything, but when I was a baby I was allergic to everything. I remember one year they did the allergy test where they prick you with a needle 50 times on your back with different stuff to see what you are allergic to, and they have one that is supposed to react with everyone, and it didn't do anything to me, lol.

It really stinks, especially since I love to try new recipies, and every time I see one with ginger it's like "Nope. Move on to the next."
