A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just rang out of hours doctors and they say there is noyhing they can do. Part of my nose and lips are numb, my son came into my bedroom and my eyes are stinging like mad
My lips are swollen too. I'm on steroid nasal spray and inhaler for the first time and steroids are sending my anxiety through the roof. I was told to see my own doctor on Monday.

My allergic would not test for food allergies but i had severe stomach pain so i went to a dermatologist who discovered im allergic to balsam of peru. It is in everything klinex laundry soap candles sprays etc but gave me a list of safe products. It has helped. Switch your products in the house to free n clear and 7th generation. Will help.

Hi there. I want to start off by saying I understand what you are going through.
My Sonny has the same situation as you. And with us it is a lot of trial and error.
He has a Compromised Immune System. Being Vaccine Injured that is where his conditions begin.
First off, I would definitely be taking care of mold in my home.
I have been able to use YLEO as my staple to cleaning. Vinegar or chlorine will put my Sonny through the roof.
I am a distributor for YLEO. And I have found a few of the oils to suit his sensitives.
He has several allergies to perfume, cologne, mold, detergent, cleaning products.
He has severe asthma also.
But the mold is the start. We live in an older home. And I found out if you have wallpaper in your home. There maybe black mold behind that wallpaper. Who would have known. I saw a documentary on a family who finally got to move into their new home, they just built. Only to move out, within a month because of black mold. So it doesn't matter if your home is new or old. Black mold can be there. So I would start there with the black mold to see if alot of your sensitivity will cease.
I hope this was helpful. Let me know. Yours truly Susan

I live with severe allergic asthma to perfumes, scents, molds, cleaning agents, soaps, deodorants and etc as well. It's a trial and error system. Also by informing your support system of the triggers. Avoidance is the key. However, I've lost a job of 13 years due to the complexity of my medical condition. Hang in there. Hugs
