I'm not sensitized to anything but when I got tested at age 9 and 18, I was told I could develop over the course of time an allergy to nettle and cat and dog's fur.

I am allergic to many things, far too many to mention (and with strange Latin names no less). I don't know everything I'm allergic to but on my last allergy testing which looked at about ~50 different potential allergens, I was allergic to all but 7 of them. I have indoor year-round allergies (including cats-- though I still have them!, dust mites, mold, tobacco smoke, etc.) and seasonal allergies, both spring and fall (trees, pollens, grasses, you name it).

No obvious food allergies, but that's not to say they don't exist. But it does seem that my sinuses are more allergically reactive than other parts of my person.

I'm definitely not allergic to penicillin though, thank Bob. With constant inner ear infections for the first two years of my life, I LIVED on amoxcillin.

I'm allergic to steroids (or at least Prednisone), nickel jewelry (although plating it seems to work), and a variety of powder cleaners (though it isn't a problem unless they're not thoroughly rinsed out). I seem to have developed a minor pollen allergy at some point, but I don't know exactly to what.

With the exception of the Prednisone, none of my reactions are severe enough to be more than a minor annoyance. Actually, the nickel jewelry turns my skin purple, so that's pretty cool.

Alder pollen, grass pollen, cats, some anti-depressants, some laxatives, multi-vitamin pills (great, eh?).
