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.

I Went To Doctor After Eating Out At A Restaurant Didn't Know Milk Had Been Used.

I was having wheezing and general stomach distress. Because I had smoked 20 years ago a diagnosis of COPD was made and the milk allergy disregarded. How do I get that COPD diagnosis removed?

I Am Afraid To Take My Epipen.

I Am Afraid To Take My Epipen.

In the Epinen, there is an additive called Sulfites, and i am allergic to the product. In my case, should i take the chance to inject if I really have to? I am very careful on what I eat, I'm very limited in my choices of food, so shouldn't i still be careful in this case also? I wish they would remove sulfites out of wine, I would sure love to have a glass lol.Thank you.

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?

Allergic To Shellfish. Want To Know If I Can Eat Tuna.

Allergic To Shellfish. Want To Know If I Can Eat Tuna.

Comapny I wrote to assured there was no cross contamination and safe but I read that tuna eat shrimps and shellfishes. Since they remove the intestines, it is safe to assume there is no trace and no danger?
