Avatar f tn Ever since I had my daughter almost nine months ago my allergy and sinus issues have been worse than ever before I know from my previous allergy testing I’m allergic to most things at the highest level.

Avatar f tn ) My doctor and I have suspected that I have a semen allergy, but have decided against testing until the point in which I decide I want to get pregnant. Til then, I either avoid contact with semen, or deal with the painful problems afterward. Normally after sexual contact, if without a condom, I have to immediately run to the bathroom and clean the area with water. I tend to get bright red in the area and swell badly. It hurts if the area is touched (wiping) or to urinate.

5555315 tn?1369796043 What if you are allergic to the antibiotics (like penicillin!) or sulfites being used to preserve meats and seafood? Have your allergist test you for these allergens.

Be safe though, don't give yourself a severe reaction when you are testing out foods eat a bit and see how you feel.

Avatar f tn is generally used as the control for intradermal testing). After the testing I was told I showed no allergies, but to still use caution. As a result, I haven't eaten any nuts & am pretty much petrified that they could appear in any foods I eat. This morning I went in for a food challenge w/ walnuts, since that seems to be what caused the initial reaction. They did this by first having me eat a small piece of walnut (about 1/4 of a walnut).

1237457 tn?1268060689 So I've been noticing for the past few years that every time I drink water, my throat gets really tight and it almost feels as if I can't breathe. And I have a deathly allergy to bee stings that feels very similar, which made me guess that it could be an allergy. So I began trying different types of water.

1336515 tn?1285008143 I had an allergy test last year that came out clean (apparently I am not allergic to anything). But when I get these allergy attacks my nose runs like a faucet and I cant stop sneezing. It happens at work, and at home.
