Avatar f tn My son has a nut allergy. Does this include the walnut and chestnut trees in our yard? I didnt even think about them while we were at the allergy office.
Avatar n tn You could have more of a sensitivity than allergy. Good to get checked out just in case allergies are developing, though. It is important to have things like this put into your medical records just in case you happen to have a severe reaction at some point to some food... the attending doctor would see at a glance that certain foods caused reactions and could possibly save time figuring out a treatment.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, the common existing food allergens are walnut, cashew, Brazil nut, pistachio etc. It affects 0.5 percent of persons in the United States. As allergic reactions are IgE mediated, blood tests will show increase in these levels secondary to a food allergy. The problem with the food allergy testing is sometimes the amount of food they challenge with may be not sufficient to elicit any allergic reactions.
Avatar m tn Hello, You have already taken allergy shots for your allergies.Along with these allergy shots,you can have some environmental modifications which will help you inkeeping allergy at bay. . Maintain/clean dehumidifiers and air conditioners regularly. Air filters of the ac trap allergens, like molds, dust and pollen. When the filters do not work properly, allergens may be released into the air, causing typical allergy symptoms, such as watery eyes, runny nose, and wheezing.
Avatar f tn 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). 15 minutes later, they had me eat a slightly larger amount.

Avatar n tn Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how your daughter is doing.
Avatar f tn I have seen my doctor and been on medication, every year during the allergy season, i will have to take special treatment for three day to be able to breath again normal. i am always stuffy, can only breath through my mouth, sneezing, running nose, itchy eyes continuously. Now it seems the allergy is year round, i don't have a break. After I get up and use the toilet at nights, i can't go back to sleep when i get back to bed (for an hour or 2) because of sneezing and blowing my nose.
Avatar m tn start by relaxing and getting plenty of rest. are you taking any new supplements or meds? allergy and cold meds can kill an erection. men make stupid sex decisions when drunk because our brains get turned off and penis has its own mind that takes over. that is a very simple way to put it but your brain can kill an erection super fast.
Avatar f tn It ocures in the end of Feb and lasts through June. We use a wood stove in the winter. Could this be related to weather or an allergy of some sort? Desperate for an answer. My body just can't sustain this as I get older. Numerous med. testing had revealed nothing. Thanks much Any suggestions welcome. Ablation done many years ago worked and the etiology of this is diferent.
Avatar f tn Before C Diff I had chronic sinusitus, but havent had an infection since using this thing (knocking wood). Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn polyester, fleece, acrylic and nylon are the worst ones .I also react to some wood products, eg sawdust, fresh cut wood, cardboard, the ink on newspaper, felt pen ink, certain perfume scents, almost all laundry detergent scents. These are just the main ones there are other things I react to as well but sometimes it is hard to figure them all out, I am now 50 years old and have had reactions to these things for 7 years or so now.
Avatar m tn In this study, researchers used 45 male rats, aged 19 months, and divided them equally into three diet groups. control, 6 percent walnut and 9 percent walnut. (They noted that the 6 percent walnut diet fed to the rats is equivalent to 1 oz. of walnuts per day for humans.) The animals were fed their diets for 15 weeks, then a sample size of five rats per group were euthanized and had their brains autopsied.

Avatar m tn I will include a site that gives many reasons for hair loss....but it is most always due to 1. food allergy 2. airborne allergy 3. environmental allergy since you have mentioned she is now required to be inside all the time therefore she is NOW using litter where she perhaps never did before right? and since licking around the back legs is classic littler allergy I would definitely start there...and change whatever kind of litter you are using, is it 'scented'? try UNSCENTED.
Avatar m tn everytime i have more than couple of beers..i notice my face gets fatter and more puffy. its not an allergy im guessing...cuz my stays that way for weeks.. it ***** cuz rest of my body is in shape, and if my face is chubbier then people start saying ive gained, when ive actually lost weight cuz of the workout. i really enjoy is this a known issue...please advise.
Avatar m tn It honestly feels like someone is squeezing my heart, and that my spinal cord is being clenched. I was wondering if these seem like symptoms of a rum allergy? But I've never experienced this feeling with any other food or drink, alcoholic or non, and the reaction is pretty quick to follow the first sips of the rum. Very strange... Thanks for you help!
Avatar n tn I will send you a site with some photos so you can compare. this condition is usually allergy related...what type of litter do you use? try chemical free...non perfumed there are several on the market like Yesterdays News(paper) or Walnut based...I do NOT like the corn based ones b/c these are full of chemicals.. what cleaners do you use on your floors or carpets????? try ALL natural cleaners around your home such as vinegar. I DO NOT like resorting to steroids(nor antibiotics)...
Avatar n tn My brother went camping and the only thing he can remember using on his face was sun block. He said that after he used it his face started burning. Now he has alot of small bumps all over his face. Can this be from the sun block? I was thinking it was poison wood, but if it was it would've been all over his body.
Avatar f tn Yes. Your daughter should have patch testing (allergy to things that touch the skin.) I have not seen cases of allergy to people who work in veterinarians' offices, so I don't know what the likely culprits are, and whether they can be eliminated. But this doesn't just sound like sensitivity--it sounds like an allergy. At any rate, I think that's what should be looked for.
Avatar f tn I would guess it has something to do with selenium in nuts, but that is just a wild guess. Apparently walnuts can make it harder to absorb Synthroid. Some thyroid medication specifically advises not to consume walnuts for four hours after taking Synthroid. I too, would love to know if there is any scientific basis to this. Some people swear Brazil nuts, with high levels of selenium, can stop their Hashimoto's.
Avatar n tn In my opinion it is probably dust irritation from the dry rot and rotten wood. It could also be an allergy to a different mold in the rotten wood as opposed to the black mold in the other boat. If you do suspect the black mold, you can put your mind at ease with a simple sputum culture. It takes about 2 months to get the complete report back, but it would tell you if you have a black mold infection in your lungs. Just tell your doctor about your exposure and request the test.
