What Type Of Medicine Can A Person Take In The Morning To Help With Allergies That Will Help

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

when I have breakfast in the morning and here is a different bread that I haven't had before than 30 minutes later my throat get sore and lips start to hurt. If there was something I could take that would help with the allergy in the event that I did eat something that I was allergy to but not enough to cause a full blown out reaction.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

I am now taking a allergy pill first thing in the morning. It seems to help me some. Thanks to everyone for the updates. Happy Holidays.

Zyrtec

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am allergic to Benedryl, Sudafed and Reactin. I am able to use Aerius but prefer not to because it tastes horrible. Also allergic to artificial sweeteners. I need liquid or sublingual. Does anyone know if I would be safe with Zyrtec? Thanks in advance.

Just Wondering If I Am The Only Person Who Has A Reaction To Sea Salt.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Grocery items I used to buy have sea salt included now. Some restaurants use sea salt now.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

I have been allergic to sea salt since it became slightly popular. It’s been at least 10 years. We used to get a local store’s French bread for French bread pizzas. We did this one night and all of a… read more

Does Anyone Else Get Hives And Can’t Determine Why?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 used to have hives like what is in your neck all the time on my upper right thigh. It wasn't my nut allergies, I was so careful.

Come to find out it was stress related.

Due To My Severe Allergies I Generally Have No Sense Of Smell, Does Anyone Else Deal With This?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 feel like I've tried everything... although I'm always open to suggestions!… read more

Hi, thank you for your comment, I did live in a house that had black mold for 5 years, the NeilMed is a nasal rinse I tried with little success since it is salt based. Taking Singular and Zyrtec daily… read more

How Do You Find Out What Is Causing You To Have A Itchy Rash I Mean It Could Be A Number Of Reasons Why. ?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭
A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

A food diary helps a lot. Make sure you include all ingredients. An example is I can't use regular salt as it has dextrose added to it (caking) and it is made from corn. Also, make note of what… read more

Any Tips On Navigating The Adult Social World With Food Allergies? Such As Dinner Invites?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm thinking forward 15+ years to when my daughter and her husband get invited to a friend's house for dinner. How would she accept if she doesn't know them well enough to trust their cooking to be safe? Does she just always offer to host? Bring her own food? Eat before coming over?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

Make sure they know about your food allergies and always bring at least one dish with you so you know you can eat it safely. Also, we have shown up late and already feed. If they are good friends… read more

Does Anyone Have Advice How To Help Others Understand How Severe An Allergy Can Be!?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am newly diagnosed (less than three weeks) and my husband just is not getting how severely allergic I am to shellfish! He made me react twice. The first time was a learning curve! Second time he used a pan and didn't clean it well I used it later to cook land I ended up in the hospital! I know it takes awhile for everyone to learn to live with allergies but does anyone have advice that would help to speed the process along! Thanks so much!!!

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member

I’m still trying to figure this one out with my husband… He was good about it when we first married, but the last few years have been awful with reaction after reaction. He’s seen them. I’ve even gone… read more

Allergic To Carrots, No EpiPen, And Scared.

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 allergen free. (They like… read more

As you posted 3 months ago, I sure hope by now you have seen the allergist and have your EpiPens (or generic equivalent). I don’t tolerate diphenhydramine (Benadryl) well either and save that for… read more

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more

It also sounds like your immune system is very compromised. One must stay away from cortisone as this only hides the problem temporally and take lots of immune boosters that hopefully will work for… read more
