What are your allergies?

I'm allergic to cats, dust, pollen, and certain cleaning chemicals.

I have had two cats since last year, so I've become a bit more tolerant around cats. Dust irritates me if enough of it reaches my nasal area. Pollen only bothers me in the summer. There are certain cleaning chemicals that seem to irritate me too.

What are your allergies?

I've gone thru extensive allergy testing over the course of my life and the main culprets are pollen, dust, mold, cattle hair and corn. Eczema (severe) is the main symptom and I've had it since infancy, but I also get nasal congestion, etc. I took allergy shots for 10 years to desensitize me but I still get occasional breakouts and need to take antihistamines regularly.

Penicillin and sulfa on the drug front, they give me rashes and hives.

I can't take it anymore. I am allergic to everything, almost everything. I tried the shots, sadly I had such a bad reaction I had to be given the epi pen. They diluted it, but yet once again a bad reaction.

I am in need of some serious changes.

None that I know of. I do have some minor seasonal sinus issues but nothing more than the sniffles and occasional headache attributable to your basic pollen/ragweed overload.

At least one of the preservatives they use to keep "real" Christmas trees fresh.
