    So, I am 18. Five days ago, I woke up with a puffy face, red eyes and little pink/ purplish dots covering my body (face / hands / feet/ back / chest) in addition to a fever. So I went to the doctor, he interrogated me and everything then he palpated my abdomen, my armpits and my neck. it caught me off guard but then he said that I have Urticaria. He just asked me to make sure that I avoid some kinds of food, wearing tight clothes and taking the right mediactions ect.... Most of the pink dots disappeared from my face, chest and back but I am still worried that I have Leukemia, I am literally going insane. I mean, I feel tired and sleepy, I have joints pain, those dots are still covering my legs and today I found two small bruises I don't even know where they came from. I also do not eat that much and I have constant headaches (well, i've always had migraines since i was 4 ) and my gums bleed a bit everytime I brush my teeth. On the other hand, my face is not that pale, I do not have any kind of acute bleedings, I just had my period days ago and it was not that heavy, just a bit earlier than usual. I know I sound silly, but I am really scared. So, anyone who had any experiences of this kind, do you think that those may be early signs of leukemia or some kind of disease?

    Everywhere you turn around there’s an allergy for something, most notably peanut allergies. Schools now have peanut free tables. At the supermarket, I’ve seen School Safe cupcakes.

    Everywhere you turn around there’s an allergy for something, most notably peanut allergies. Schools now have peanut free tables. At the supermarket, I’ve seen School Safe cupcakes. One time at my retail job, I had a customer return a bag of watermelon rings because her son was allergic to watermelon! What happened? When I was a kid in the 90s, I’ve never heard of food allergies like these other than my friend who was lactose intolerant, which he outgrew since then, and my mom has had a shellfish allergy all her life and she was born in the 50s!!! Anyway, back to my original question, how will we stop future generations of kids from becoming allergic to everything?

I ve also been speaking to people who have latex allergies and they say they are allergic to latex gloves etc and I have never had a reaction to them.

  • Can I still be allergic to strawberries?

    Best answer: For the human body growing out of allergies like that, you would have needed to have something like one small strawberry every day since about the age of 6 or 7, but you can start conditioning your body now for it too. I would try one out, but be ready to go to the hospital if needed. And seriously, if no rash or... show more

    I would try one out, but be ready to go to the hospital if needed. And seriously, if no rash or anything breaks out, then DO NOT eat a whole lot still, but have one or 2 per day for a week, then step up to 4 for the week after.

    I get allergies about twice a year. The way my allergies work is first a cough,runny nose and then water eyes. I'm completely fine going along my day with a stuffy nose and a bad cough but watery eyes are so annoying and I miss school because of it. They water about every 3 minutes and it's always out of one eye, the next day it's the other eye. I hate going to school with it because it looks like I'm crying all day and it's very distracting. I've tried just about everything but nothing works. Any advice ?

  • How do I unblock my permanently blocked nose?

    Best answer: There are some things you can try: Smell some Vicks or Mentholatum. Do a nasal rinse using a nasal rinse system. If you don't want to buy the product, you mix a little salt in warm water, close one nostril, and gently sniff a little of this into the nose until it reaches the top; then let it run down the back... show more
    Best answer: There are some things you can try:
    Smell some Vicks or Mentholatum.
    Do a nasal rinse using a nasal rinse system. If you don't want to buy the product, you mix a little salt in warm water, close one nostril, and gently sniff a little of this into the nose until it reaches the top; then let it run down the back of your nose and spit it out of your mouth. Do it 3 times for each nostril. This stings if you sniff too hard, but it still makes you feel better. The systems you buy don't sting because they don't involve sniffing.
    Loratidine 10 mg. once a day.

    Last week I was blowing my nose and it started bleeding and bled a lot, finally got it stopped and about an hour later was trying to clean it out without blowing and it started again and we couldn't get it to stop. I ended up going to er and it had to be packed. That was horrible and I was miserable the whole 3 days. It was removed on Monday and have had a little bloody discharge off and on but today I had two more, I was able to get them to stop but am terrified of going through that again. I am using humidifier and nasal saline.

    Anyone's child have multiple allergic reactions to antibiotics? My niece (2.5 yrs old) just had her 4th reaction (hives) everywhere from the last antibiotic available. Which means she is allergic to all 4 classes available to her (penicillin's, cephalosporins, sulfonamides, Tetracyclines) causing a huge problem as now she has a UTI and needs medication. My sister is extremely worried as she needs to continue the dose but the doctor said it could be very serious and gave steroids to prevent an increased reaction. She will be seeing an allergist but every doctor so far has never seen a child allergic to every class. She said she can do the desensitization procedure but it would most likely only be for Penicillin and take place in the ICU. Anyone have this issue?
