Hi. I have Auticaria.Anyone else have it?.

I have Auticaria. The hives never go away they just shift to other parts of my body.
I have been for food allergy tests,lupus and blood tests. The dermatologist has now recommended that I go to Groote Schuur hospital for further testing.
Has anyone been through that process?
What do they test for?

Due to my severe allergies I generally have no sense of smell, does anyone else deal with this?

I was told to try wild Oregano tablets as supplements, sometimes this helps.
I've had 3 sinus surgeries which basically didn't work because the polyps grew back, there is only so much lining in our sinuses, so no more surgeries for me. I've tried literally every nose spray on the market, sinus douching. I find the salt rinses don't help, although one homeopathic rinse I tried a few years ago helped a little.
I literally… read more

Safe deoderant for Peanut and Tree Nut Allergies

My 9 year old (Peanut and tree nut allergies) started using natural deoderant (crystal brand) and has not had any problems, though we are now considering trying something a bit stronger and am worried about hidden ingredients that she may be allergic to. She did try Dove sensitive skin antipersperant/deoderant and she did say it stung her skin and could see some redness.

We welcome any suggestions. Thanks!
