Okay, I admit I'm a walking allergy.

Enviromential: detergents, fabric softeners, soaps, shampoos, perfumes, smoke, anything with dye or scented to smell good. Even my toliet tissue must be hypoallergenic.

Every tree but a beech tree, every grass, weed, flower, and bush. Every pet that has hair.
Roaches and rats.

Drug allergies: penicillin, sulfa drugs, monocycline, levaquin, restasis, beditine

Food allergies: shellfish, cantilope

And now pomegrante

I discovered pomogrante last year. I ate five of them with no trouble last year. Last night I sat down and ate a whole one with glee. Afterwards my tongue on the very tip was a little tender, but I assumed it was due to me using my tongue to manipulate the seeds as I crushed the juice out.
During the night I has a small asthma attack (still hadn't put two and two together).
This morning I look in the mirror and see tiny welts all across my face. My eyes are itchy and red. The welts are a little itchy. My face is red and puffy.

I've taken a Visteril, which is a powerful antihistmine, that was left over from my last allergic reaction. I hope I don't get any worse. That will mean I'll have to go get an IV treatment at the local ER. $$$$$$$$

I just want to cry.

Don't mention allergy shots. I'm allergic to them.

Well, I have to go. Thanks for the vent.

I'm sorry that you are having such issues right now. I know it must be very hard for you. So vent away all you want.

My face is still broke out. I think my scalp is too. I feel itchy every once and awhile.
I've got an itchy rash on my legs now. Such fun.

I take zyrtec everyday the doctor said I only need to take benadryl in extreme distress.
I still have a mild rash on my face and legs, but the itching is almost gone. My legs itch the most.
I've been rubbing benadryl cream on my legs. It seems to help calm it down.
