Is Anyone Unable To Take Benadryl Or Use An EpiPen?

Is Anyone Unable To Take Benadryl Or Use An EpiPen?

I have a medical condition that makes it dangerous for me to have any medicine with epinephrine in it. Does anyone else have this problem, and if yes, what do you do about it?

Is There Anyone That Can't Eat Onions Or Garlic?

I have not been diagnosed but they elimination have found them to be the culprits of by bouts of extreme stomach cramping and light headedness. The thing is the symptoms aren't always severe. Is anyone else experiencing this? Have you found anything that helps other than trying to avoid them?

I often have reactions (mouth) to raw onions, but I can tolerate them cooked, usually, although they will upset my stomach sometimes.

Allergic To Carrots, No EpiPen, And Scared.

Allergic To Carrots, No EpiPen, And Scared.

I have a severe carrot allergy that started 15 years ago. After I developed the allergy (literally overnight) I found myself reacting to other foods such as, sweet potatoes, radishes, turnips, beets, watermelon, cantaloupe, parsnips, and various squashes. I live with my husband's family who seem to not want to understand or help me prevent a reaction. They do not seem to want to understand cross contamination, and they refuse to change their diet so that my kitchen is… read more

Sunflower Seeds/sunflower Lechithin

Sunflower Seeds/sunflower Lechithin

I'm highly allergic to sunflower seeds. I can eat chips cooked in sunflower oil though (for example lays). I am also allergic to wheat, so recently I bought some gluten free donuts from Aldi's. It's the liveGfree brand. One of the ingredients almost on the bottom of the list is sunflower lechithin. I have never heard of it before. Would it be safe to eat the donuts? I'm surely hoping so because I bought 3 boxes.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member said:

If it's near the bottom of the list, there's a good chance there's not a lot of it in the donuts. Be safe with a test nibble, then 1/2 a donut. I can… read more
