Are you allergic to anything?

Does the spring weather and outside plants and trees leaving you feeling ?

Are the foods that you are allergic to? Or maybe its perfumes and powders?

Maybe it's inside pet dander, mold or dust?

What is it that bothers you the most?

How are you dealing with it?

I am allergic to a multiple list of prescription medications.

I must have other allergies too but I don't know what they are but some things bring on asthma attacks and I am taking Singular.

Pet Dander, Pine Trees, Codeine, and 2 other meds I can not think of right now, mold, dust mites (and we all have those)
I have an inhaler for when it really gets to me
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

Not sure what ragweed is so say not but I get a rash from the fresh leaves of some native trees, there are also native flowers that make me sneeze.
I need the hypo allergenic powders, soaps and lotions.
My mums says I used to get hives from strawberries but I must have got over it as they don't bother me now.
I also get eczema on occasion.

I have allergies to tree pollen. I have hay fever brought on by cut grass.
I am also allergic to asprin and prednisolone (medications)

With the hayfever I use piriton which helps and eye drops
and the others avoid and make sure gp's and other dr's know when I visit them

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.

Most of my allergies to things are skin related.
I love oranges and orange juice, ut if I over do them I get a red, itchy rash that can last for weeks. It almost looks like eczema, but its not.
If I walk into someone house and I immediately get a stuffy nose I know they have a pet. i couldn't go to my sisters house with out meds, she had several cats and I couldn't brethe the second I entered the house.
I love the smell of cut grass, but if I sit in it, I break out.
My mom used to say that I am just weird. LOL. I agree.

I'm allergic to Milk. i can have a little Milk if it doesn't come from the cartons or jugs. I also have to be careful when getting a new medication , because a lot of Medications are bound with Milk products.

I do not know what I am allergic too, for sure. I am pretty sure alphafa as when it blooms, I am really sneeze a lot. I know right before it rains, my allergies get worse. My allergies are really bad. But food allergies do not bother me.

Hmmm allergies...gotta love them...not

I am allergic to everything on your list. I am so allergic to certain trees....birch and beech that I have developed oral allergy syndrome.....I can not eat any raw fruit with a pit or seeds or I have an anaphylactic reaction.....I can eat them processed though. I am also allergic to wasp and bee stings, and a few medications. I carry benadryl and an epi pen with me always. I also take puffers and allergy medication daily.

Hugs debbie
