For the past few mornings I've been waking up with a swollen red face. I see a fine red rash scattered across my face also. My body feels itchy, too.


I've not changed my soap, detergent, shampoo, or medications.



I'm afraid I've developed a new allergy

Not red but I have woken to a slightly swollen face. Which detergent do you use?

Have you gone to the doctor?

I use tide free and downy free. Anything else I'll itch and sneeze.

I'm trying to get in to see my allergist.

I have constant swelling of my legs, too. I can gain up to ten pounds of fluid in two days if I don't take my lasix. I don't think it's all my thyroid issues.

I also want to see if I'm truely allergic to shellfish or if the reaction I had last time (rash) is a one time thing.

The allergy tests aren't reliable when it comes to being tested for foods. I had the RAST test to see if I am allergic to hazelnuts and strawberries, both in which I break out in a rash, but it came back negative. My daughter is allergic to shellfish and once again, she was tested and it came back negative. The allergist said that these tests aren't that accurate and you need to go by what your body is trying to tell you.

I've had the skin tests for allergies, what is this test you're refering to? Is it blood work?

The food allergy testing is bloodwork - at least according to my daughter's allergist. Airborn allergens such as pollen, mold, mildew etc can be done with the skin.
