The cold.

Not so much anymore but in my teens especially I would break into hives and hyperventilate and pass out in cold water. Weird.

watches..

anytime I wear a watch, doesn't matter if the band is leather, plastic, metal - I get an itchy rash on the inside of my wrist which takes a few days to go away.

I'm allergic to all meat from poultry - chicken, turkey, duck etc. I've only ever met two other people with the same allergy - my aunt and the friend of a work colleague. Reaction in all of us is the same - hives and vomitting.

Cheers,
Julie

When MIL is washing up and I'm doing the rinsing/ drying I often sneeze as she OVERUSES detergent (which gets up my nose). Every single time, without a doubt, FIL will yell out "I think you're allergic to your MIL". I chuckle, but don't disagree with him. I like playing mind games with her like that. ph34r.gif

I have just come up in a red spotty rash all over my upper back, neck and arms.  I can attribute it to the silk scarf that I wore as a shawl over a formal dress to a wedding on Saturday.  It sat on exactly those areas of skin.  I bought the scarf in Bali a few months ago.  I have never been allergic to any of the other silk scarves I have warn, so I reckon it is pretty weird really.   Blerk.

Grevilleas.

More precisely. Their flowers.

Hives, systemic rash then lip swelling. It's really scary. I get jumpy at the nursery is I see the flowers, have to make sure I don't brush the sticky stuff. Shudder.

Mushrooms.

Makes me puke within minutes of eating anything containing the slippery little beggars, then have the shivers and an headsplitter headache for 24 hours.

Even the smell of them cooking makes me feel iffy and sets off a lesser headache.



At times I am also allergic to my children. Mostly when they are whining, whinging or fighting. So a good 50% of the time (they sleep lots laugh.gif wink.gif  )

I have none, but I knew someone who reacted to ingredients in quite a few different deodorants, there was only a couple she could use, and then one changed their formula... she was VERY unhappy.

I also know someone who is allergic to toilet paper that is scented or has print. I see no point in scented TP..

And I also know someone who is allergic to chocolate.

Oh yes, and I know someone who is allergic to lavender.
