Cows milk protein cure/tests- Has anyone tried this?

There is a treatment where small amounts of cows milk protein is injected into the skin over a period of time in order to familiarise your body with the protein and not have it 'attack' the cells when consumed. Does this work?

Alpha Gal Allergies

Alpha Gal Allergies

Who has this? Finally requested doctors office blood testing for Lymes. Not sure of that result as it is not available or wasn't ordered however, I tested positive for Alpha Gal. What guidance were you advised besides avoiding Beef Pork and Lamb? Realize this also includes No meats from any hoofed animals including wild game. New journey.

Taro what is related to it

Taro what is related to it

Hi everyone I am allergic to Dory Fish as well as other fish that I don't remember what they are, Taro, Diclofinec which is a Antihistamine that for me doesn't work well cos of the reaction, and Coconut are the other things I am allergic to.

What I want to know is not if there is anything related to it; I want to know what it is related to so I can avoid this stuff like the plague.

Thank you all for reading my post.

Anyone watched Rotten episode 2 on Netflicks on allergies?

Anyone watched Rotten episode 2 on Netflicks on allergies?

What is your view on it? I wasn't too impressed as it seemed to only highlight peanut, and as milk is most common allergy didn't understand why it wasn't mentioned .
also the myth that reactions get worse over time with each reaction was a shame.

I liked the segment on the indian restaurant owner who got 6 yrs in jail for a peanut allergy death.

If you haven't seen it have a watch and let me know what you think.

Storaging adrenaline pens - specialist medical holder

Storaging adrenaline pens - specialist medical holder

Hi

I just wanted to ask how do you store your adrenaline pens? Do you keep them in a special case?

I’m currently keeping my two Emerade pens in a thin pencil case. But in its original case and packaging. I’m not sure if it should be in a special case or not.

As long as it’s in its original case it should be good. Keep away from heat and cold.

Travelling on Emirates to Maldives with Severe Milk, Nuts, Sesame and Egg allergies

Travelling on Emirates to Maldives with Severe Milk, Nuts, Sesame and Egg allergies

Hi
We have been on holiday, but later on this year we are going to the Maldives. Would be great to read any advice that you think would help us on our journey! 3 girls with severe allergies and myself. We're flying Emirates to Dubai then Dubai on to Male. We chose a resort that didn't serve buffet style food as that would not be helpful for our allergies. We felt we couldn't compromise on the food in a resort. Many thanks Sarah x
