Avatar f tn There is such a thing as environmental allergies like gas exhaust, pollen , dust. There are all kinds of things someone can be allergic to. Even something like grass pollen.
15695260 tn?1549593113 Ragweed, weed pollen and mold are very common. Pollen counts are often regularly updated on local news sites. A hepa filter in your air conditioner may help. Wearing sunglasses when out will help keep pollen out of your eyes. Wash your hair at the end of the day to wash out pollen. Exercise in the morning when pollen counts are lower. Rinse off the dog as Fido may have pollen on their fur. Medication can be a blessing. Nose sprays are helpful for some as are oral antihistamines.
Avatar n tn I usually have allergies in the spring (pollen, hay fever, etc.) But all through the summer, I've been having sudden extremely itchy throat. When I try to use my tongue to relieve the itching, I can feel the itching in my ear and sometimes my nose. The itching is very bad at first, but after a minute it subsides but doesn't totally go away until about half an hour later. This does not sound to me as my usual allergies. Usually, I just have a constantly mild itchy or sore throat.

Avatar m tn My eyes have been really dry and also full of pollen allergens. Anybody get phosphenes from their dry eye syndrome?
Avatar m tn ve moved to a foreign country and I have had terrible reactions to what I assume are airborne allergies since March. My eyes are VERY red and stingy almost all day + recurring runny nose. The nose is better after some sprays I got, but my eyes get so red and bothersome that it has affected my social life---I literally just don't want to go outside anymore! In the last few months I've been prescribed Aerius, Telfast + Allegra, Tafen, Claritine, Xyzal, etc.

Problem is, I went to an allergist, and he tried to do the skin scratch test and stopped and told me my skin was dermatographic and that the test would generate false positives on everything. He did a east panel, but it was for mostly food allergies not pollen and outdoor allergens.
Avatar f tn Other than that the only treatment for food allergies is to not eat the foods. Pollen allergies can be treated, but it takes a while and we patients are still told to avoid exposure as much as possible. You may need to consult with a nutritionist to make sure that you are getting everything you need. With propper care and avoidance, you should be able to maintain your active life style. I hope you can find a ballance for yourself. It can be difficult.
Avatar n tn “As mentioned, the Birch pollen-Apple oral Allergy Syndrome is commonly seen in the UK. The major Birch Pollen pan-allergen Bet V 1 has a very similar structure to the major allergens in Apple, Hazelnut, Carrot, Cherry, Pear, Tomato, Celery, Potato and Peach. Hence we find Birch Pollen sensitised individuals have oral allergy to any one or combination of these fruits and vegetables.
Avatar f tn would depend on what you are allergic too. Allergy to grass pollen would make you worse in the fall, ragweed I believe is in the summer months and dust mite allergies are all year round. I got told from my allergist that dust mites peak in june and it feels the worse come winter (october-november) when you start spending more time inside with the dust mite dander.
Avatar f tn Oftentimes fruits and veggies cross react with other things like pollen, ragweed, etc. Are you on allergy meds for env. allergies? During peak season on those allergies, the other ones can flare dearly. Latex is also a cross reactor to fruits and veggies. Carrots to mugwort (weed). Hope this helps and let us know how you are doing.
Avatar m tn I was at the gym tonight and decided to try some bee pollen with my shot of wheat grass juice at the juice bar. I had some type of reaction that I could not believe. I was on the treadmill, about 30 minutes into my workout I started getting dizzy, vomited and ran to the bathroom. I was very light headed, as if I was about to pass out. I cut my workout short, rested about 30 minutes, felt better. Took a short swim, 200 meters free style, with no ill effects.
Avatar m tn I've been suffering with chronic sinusitis for almost a year and a half - long story short, I ended up with sinus surgery and having tonsils removed. Bad, bad situation - couldn't swallow, couldn't eat, lost a ton of weight etc., etc. I've been doing better but I just can't get my appetite back and my stomach is contantly sick. Dr. says that all will heal in time but it is frustrating.
Avatar m tn He is highly allergic to dust and dustmites. We live in Houston, TX. and the pollen and ragweed are also a major problem. In our house we have the big filters in the attic for the a/c and furnace. We will have them replaced in the morning to see if this helps. This is very frustrating when you see this in young people and nobody knows what to do. Thanks for repying and I will let you know how it goes.
Avatar n tn I have severe allergies to pollen and ragweed. Instead of treating my allergy symptoms, my doctor prescribed an anti-inflammatory medicine called Mobic. My doctor said that the pressure made my facial bones super sensitive to the touch. Mobic has worked pretty well - might be worth a shot!
Avatar n tn I am allergic to so many things - dust mites (severe), pollen (grass, tree, ragweed - pretty bad) and various animals (not to mention food now). I've been on Rhinocort Aqua for several years with great results. On bad days I take Claritin. I've been on other steroid nasal sprays, but Rhinocort has been the most gentle. I want to get off Rhinocort because I think the steroid is causing me to constantly eat as well as be irritable all the time.
Avatar n tn Most allergy tests look for the "usual" suspects: ragweed, mold, animal dander, mites, tree pollen, etc. I had a skin test at 11 years old against 35 common allergens and reacted to none of them. So I was told I have no allergies and therefore non-allergenic rhinitis. However, I'm very allergic to fragrance and lavender and have been since I was a baby. I've also since become allergic to jasmine, lilies, lilacs, juniper bushes, ceder, cats, dust, mold, hay, and fresh grass.
Avatar m tn The spores from common molds function much like the pollen from ragweed. If you inhale the spores, you could get a case of allergic rhinitis, otherwise known as hay fever -- an unpleasant combination of runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, itching, congestion and coughing. And if you have asthma, the spores may trigger attacks. More than 80 types of mold have been associated with lung, nose, and throat problems, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (ACAAI).
Avatar m tn I received a low positive ANA test twice in the matter of 2 months. My doctor said he'll retest me in 6 months to see where I stand because he found out that I have some allergies, such as allergic to Cow's milk, Sesame seed, and ragweed. I complained to him about itching all over my body, but no rash just skin irritation, and some body aches. Was prescribed Methylprednisolone and Cingular...relieved me for quite some time, but the itching is back, but now with some mild testicular pain.
Avatar f tn I always get hay fever in the spring and while on this Boceprevir trial i never sneezed once tru the time period when the pollen counts were high but i did have allergies for 2 days 1 month later when the pollen counts were down.The only thing ive done different were taking the TX meds.
1152061 tn?1262040956 My general practitioner thought the sore throats were from ragweed. It was always ragweed season when they occured, and batteries of tests for strep throat, yeasts and other things always came back negative. I just got interdermal testing and did in fact come back reactive for ragweed, as well as molds, some pollens, dust mites and, unfortunately, cats ( I have a cat).
