What are you allergic to?

I am allergic to dust, mold, and dust mites. When I was younger I was allergic to all foods. A few years back I found out I am allergic to my own sweat.

A very short list:

Lifelong, my own mucus. If my nose starts to drip it can go for a week.

For a while, I had a self-inflicted [long story] allergy to the plant Creeping Charlie alias Creeping Jenny - a lowgrowing mint sometimes thrown into the same genus with catnip but more recently tending to be separated. I MAY have passed out of that.

More recently, some evidence my innards react to certain red-pigmented foods - I love beets, rhubarb pie, red peppers, but I sometimes pay deatly for the pleasure. But this one seems to be variable.

I guess some people just do things they like to do or eat what they like to eat even though they have to pay for it. I never understood why people did that but if you love it once in awhile just for the taste. I guess I can see why.

Pollen is my #1 allergy. Long-haired cat fur is also a pain sometimes (which was always fun when my cat Polly was alive, because she loved me a great deal and would insist on sitting on my lap whenever she could :lol: ), as is cigarette smoke, which makes my lungs feel like they've shrivelled to about half their normal size.

I'm allergic to absolutely nothing.

This seems to differ from everyone else I've known with AS.

Me too :lol: nothing :lol:

But I hate cigarettes and I keep myself far away from smokers. I tell all people I'm allergic.

As a child I was highly allergic to pollen and I had to take medication for it. One year I suddenly outgrew it, and now they're barely noticeable.

I'm suspected to be allergic to paracetamol.... :(
But in food wise, no.

everything in the rose family: apples, plums, peaches, raspberries, pears, almonds, etc. all cause anaphylactic shock

the standard respiratory ones: cats, dust, certain tree pollen

the tobacco plant (yet not the smoke, ironically), cockroaches

a certain aunt, who makes me want to run the other way.
