    - Contrast dye injected for x-ray studies can make my skin get all blotchy and I'll have trouble breathing, even go into shock.
    - Seasonal pollens in different parts of the country, have never found out what they are specifically.
    - Some chocolates can give me a headache; is that a food allergy?
    - Cats, but only with very close contact. So I can pet them, be in a house with them if the place is kept vacuumed. If I should sleep on a pillow on which a cat has lain, however, my nose right against the material, I'l get an allergic reaction.

    Ragweed, mold, pet dander, dust.

    I'd have a pet but that damn dander keeps them away. Can't even touch a dog unless I can wash my hands right after or I start sneezing up a storm. I had even developed a skin condition from the dogs at my last roommate situation. So happy that's all cleared up finally.

    I'm in all seriousness allergic to cold. No it's not a joke, like why the hell are you living in Canada then. It was much worse when I was a kid. Any area of my skin that was exposed would well up and I got hives which pretty much negated any swimming otherwise I'd come out of the water a mass of blotches. In winter my face would all puff out and get hives if I didn't have it covered. It's subsided over the years but I still can't go swimming in a lake or most swimming pools. Well I can so long as it's dark.

    Only once in my entire life have I met anyone else with the same condition and that was sort of a fluke. I was at Lake Louise Alberta in the Rockies back in the early 80's heading back to Vancouver on the train. It was May I believe about 8a.m. and I was standing outside at the little train station (shack) waiting for the train and the only other people there were an elderly couple who I started chatting to. They happened to be from Atlanta, here on vacation. So while we're chatting the woman reaches in her purse and pulls out a jar of Vaseline and begins rubbing it onto her arms. She tells me, I guess because she thought it might look strange her doing that, that she is "allergic to cold" and that "white vaseline" not the yellow is the only thing that stops her from breaking out on exposed areas.. Well that woman flipped when I told her I had the same thing, she couldn't believe it, she was in her 70's or 80s and had never met another person with it either.

    I don't have any true allergies other than to feather down (make my eyes get really scratchy).

    But I have several food intolerances, the only really strong one being yeast. (Baker's Yeast and Brewer's Yeast).

    If I have foods that are high in yeast, I become absolutely lethargic... for a few days following eating it I have no energy and digestive problems. It basically makes me feel very hungover.

    - pollen (esp. grasses, trees, ragweed)
    - the Penicillin family of antibiotics
    - ammonia
    - dust
    - certain moulds
    - animal dander, though dogs seem worse than cats
    - down

    Then food allergies:
    - tree nuts, with walnuts being the worst
    - drupes (any fruit that has a stone in it, eg. cherries and peaches)
    - bananas

    And here's the least fun one...
    - latex

    About every tree in my backyard back home (Lexington was once considered the allergy capitol of the world. Dunno if it still is). What I'm REALLY allergic to, though, are cockroaches. icon_neutral.gif
