  • Confused on when to use my Epipen?

    So my throat swelled up and I had massive anxiety and dizziness from a food allergy exposure. But even though it was bad I wasnt sure if I was supposed to use the epipen or not? Do you use it with those symptoms or only if you start wheezing? I'm scared to use it when I'm not supposed to.

    My husband has been dealing with this issue for over a year now. Every night his nose gets completely stuffed and he can’t breathe. This happens BEFORE lying down; I understand that lying flat may cause congestion but we will be sitting there watching TV and BAM- stuffed up, every single night. It’s really getting to me too, as since this has started he has developed a really bad snore most nights. What could be causing his to stuff up every single night even when sitting up? It happens year round, so his seasonal allergies aren’t the cause. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • What is safe to eat/drink with suspected food allergies?

    Every day for the past 1-2 months, no matter what I eat, my stomach hurts. Sometimes it's not bad, sometimes its debilitating. I eat gluten and dairy and nuts almost every day, and cutting one out for a day doesn't seem to help. It might not be food related pain, but I have to make sure, because it's... show more
    Every day for the past 1-2 months, no matter what I eat, my stomach hurts. Sometimes it's not bad, sometimes its debilitating. I eat gluten and dairy and nuts almost every day, and cutting one out for a day doesn't seem to help. It might not be food related pain, but I have to make sure, because it's seriously impacting my life. I want to just not eat and give my system time to reset. At the same time, I don't want to starve myself. If I don't eat/have a caloric intake for ~12 hours I get really shaky, nauseous, dizzy etc. What drinks with calories can I drink a lot of that won't upset my stomach? If this doesn't help I will explore other medical options, but I prefer to try a cleanse before tests etc.

I've taken medication like Sudufed, it definitely does help a lot, but it's not meant for a long term usage and it seems like no other medication works. I've been taking time off my job because i've just been lacking confidence. Any advice?

  • Children with dog allergies and keeping the house allergen free?

    Hi! I have a 35lb mutt (who seems to shed more than a short hair dog should) and my boyfriend has three elementary aged children with fairly severe dog allergies.

    Hi! I have a 35lb mutt (who seems to shed more than a short hair dog should) and my boyfriend has three elementary aged children with fairly severe dog allergies. We are planning to moving in together in a month. I know nothing about dog allergies and am trying to educate myself about what needs to be done to keep the kids comfortable in my home. I've gotten as far as the hepa air filter, that seems to be the Holy Grail? I would imagine that regular dusting and vacuuming will help? Are there ways to reduce my dogs shedding and dander? Any information would be very helpful. Thank you!

  • How long will my sore throat last??

    I’ve had a sore throat for more than 2 weeks. It’s very minor but does cause irritation. The doctor said it’s post nasal drip from allergies.

  • Why does my stomach hurt after drinking coffee?

    Best answer: You probably have a weak stomach lining which coffee far too easily irritates and inflames. Don't drink it on an empty stomach.

  • Do i have a asian sauce allergy?

    Best answer: Yeah, this reads as if you are allergic to something in that sauce for it. Let your boss know right away, and even show them it all, how you react to it. The only problem with it would be that somebody never gets to cleaning those pans, and they all just sit there until the next day, which the cooks would not... show more

  • My girlfriend was chatting with mom and complaining about how she can't take peanut butter sandwich to kindergarten. Is this inconsiderate?

    My girlfriend loves peanut butter sandwiches. She works as a kindergarten assistant educator. The kindergarten she works at has a policy on peanuts that they are not allowed due to allergies. She was talking with my mom about how she really didn't like the policy and (sort of in a joking way) wished she could have her peanut butter sandwich at child care. Is it just me or is this rather inconsiderate and selfish? I don't think that what she said was appropriate. Food allergies are not a choice. Obviously they really burden her a lot, even though she doesn't have any known ones herself. She talks about how she loves croissants and baklava even though her mom has celiac disease and can't have them. I am a bit concerned that she is going to make an idiot of herself in front of some better educated and more considerate people down the line and we will both be looked down upon. Do you think she is saying this stuff intentionally or just a bit clueless about how the things she says might come across? What is going on in her head to be saying this stuff? I would have thought her mom's dietary restrictions would have made her more sensitive to the wider issues surrounding gluten free food, etc. Her educational performance at school was below par but I do believe she has a good heart. What are your thoughts?
