My hands, fingers, forearms itch like crazy all night long. I have hives all over my arms, shoulders, waist, chest. They come and go so quickly at times. The hives and itchy skin aren’t related, according to my allergist. I’ve been taking 20mg of Claritin AND 20mg of Zyrtec every day and they helped for a while but my symptoms are back again. Doctor prescribed a medication called doxepin and wants me to take two capsules at bedtime and stay on the Zyrtec but stop taking Claritin. I’m not… read more
I have a severe tree nut allergy, and I tried the challenge approach in the allergist's office. After 5 hours I ingested one whole almond, but because I did not show any symptoms in the office he told me I could eat almonds (ha, ha). I didn't have a reaction until 2 hours later. My tongue began swelling. Needless to say, I stay away from all tree nuts!
For so long I have been searching for a allergy sufferer of citrus just like myself. Find shopping for food ridiculously hard as most things contain concentrated lemon juice etc. Would just like a friend who understands how much of a pain it is!
Hi guys! Ive recently started having deep pain in my calves that are not exercise induced that also leaves mythe calves feeling numb. Iv read on other forums and blogs that this could be because I ingest gluten or gluten containing products. I cant seem to find scientific research on this if anyone has some info on this please shout!
Thank you! :-)

I was diagnosed with a peanut allergy when I was about 18 months old. My mom gave me peanut butter on crackers, but I didn't eat the snack, I just played with it and broke out in hives. She gave me a bath and the hives went away. I had a skin prick test when I was about 3 that confirmed a peanut allergy. I've never had a reaction to any food since, but I've also avoided all peanuts and nuts. I will usually eat food that says "May Contain Peanuts" on the label. I've never had an itchy mouth… read more
How often do people develop new allergies instead of outgrowing existing ones? My e n was born with multiple food allergies, most have gone drastically down and he eats except for egg, when he went for his annual check up I was in so much shock of the inhalant allergies he suddenly has and never had before.
I have been taking Benadryl tablets for the last 6 months for itching caused by food allergies. I am obviously allergic to something that I have not figured out yet. I take 2 tablets and within 30 minutes to an hour all of the itching subsides. Also, I did not have any side effects like drowsiness. My friends were amazed that I could stay awake on it.
The past few times I have taken it, not only does it not take the itch away completely, it makes me extremely drowsy. I sleep for over 8… read more
I have bought nut and soy allergy safe baking coco at Whole Foods for years. They stopped selling it. They have also removed basic popcorn telling me they only carry it in bulk now. I do not buy bulk products due to cross contamination. Is anyone else frustrated with the lack of safe foods grocery stores seem to stock. I do not want fan ay packaged/processed foods, these are basic staples. I do not want to take the time to drive to 4-5 stores to find allergy safe pantry staples.
