Whos Shares My Allergies?

Whos Shares My Allergies?

I use to eat all forms of fruit, boxes and boxes full of it. As a child I disliked veggies and meat. Then I noticed that I had a allergic reaction to Lici's, Avo's followed and then PawPaws and mellons, now tomatoes are becoming a problem.

The reaction I get is that I cannot breath. This is awful. Does anyone know what does these fruits… read more

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?

Does Anyone Get Light-headed As A Symptom?

Does Anyone Get Light-headed As A Symptom?

I’ve had itchy mouth, wheezing, instant diarrhea when eating strawberries, although blood testing was negative. Today an apple made me feel light-headed, and “just not right.” My husband thinks it’s just anxiety (maybe it is). Is anyone else affected this way?

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?
