I have no idea what I have but i think imight be allergic to a few things. First off, i dont sneeze, cough, etc..Not typical allergies. However, i think when i put on hair gel, it causes my eyes to get dry as well as face to burn? Could that be possible? scalp doesnt get irratated just flushing of face , etc..Also when i sweat or get hot, i feel it worse. When i get near my girlfriend, perfume, etc...i think my eyes start burning and get red. After i shave and aftershave might cause this same reaction as i have when applying hair gel. Who knows. I am switching hair gels to something that is hypoallergenic. Dont know if this could be allergies and if so, what drops are good to take? I went to eye doc and he said i had bad DRY EYE. but i thinking this could be becuase allergies? is taht possible. I am only 28/m so having dry eyes this young is prob caused by something i am applying or whatever?

Also, what are some ingredients to look out for in products that cause allergic reactions like what i have described above? Outside of my arms as well as front of legs also get blotchy and reddish easier? dont know why. I wonder if this is all related to allergies or if its hormonal?

Lastly, would allergy shots help this kind of allergy?

You can use Refresh (is an eye drop) for your dry eye. Also, the only way I could even gather for you to find remotely your allergy would be to take your hair gel and shaving cream that you say you react to, list all the ingredients and see what is in common. Most likely that would be allergy then. For example if I was allergic to cake and icecream...I look for the common allergy. i try milk, get same thing. woah there it is. :)

hIsHANEA655...Great to hear from you.I am allergic to most skin care products..and have found that Boots NO7 anti allergenic skin care products suit me fine...a little more expensive than other makes but better to have no irritaions and I have found you only need a little of the product to do the trick.My husband aslo uses all no7 for men[to protect me] and has commented on how smooth his skin feels even after a shave.Try it nothing to well hugs Grooveyx
