Fragrance Reactions

Fragrance Reactions

I have a comment, not a question. I have several allergies and when a new school year begins w/ meetings, I end up leaving the auditorium because many are wearing cologne and/or perfume. I must sit in the hall because attendance is mandatory and the migraine is just an added benefit to the start of a new school year, every time!

I was prescribed oral antihistamines (now available over the counter) which I still take daily all year round (alternating every few months so… read more

Allergic To Carrots, No EpiPen, And Scared.

Allergic To Carrots, No EpiPen, And Scared.

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
