Hi Alcle, Thanks for the nice welcome. I have no idea what the carrier is. Have had no other reactions when I have blood drawn for a checkup either. I asked the PA could it be the cotton or the alcohol they use to clean the injection site. No to that one too, and I was stretching it for any source to my reactions.
Zyrtec only helps for the sneezing and watery eyes. I tried Benadryl to and that makes no difference in the itching welts. Benadryl only works slightly when my throat swells up but that required the ER. The swelling is something no doctor can figure out. Been tested for it and they came up with zero!
My doctor is an allergist and an immunologist also. After telling me I have sensitive skin but should have no further reactions with the watered down version of the allergens. Since I did I am not sure I want to go back. My food allergy is very mild and most are environmental (trees, grass etc.)
I took a Zyrtec last night and I'm ok with the sneezing so maybe I should just take that and skip the shots.
I'm at a loss but I'm leaning towards the Zyrtec alone.
