What are you allergic to?
LIFE_IN_2D
So summer is here, and summer in Arizona is hell.

I got some cheap-ass sunscreen to make sure I didn't get burned too bad. I put the shit on, and half-a-day later I get a horrible rash. I applied the screen to my arm, from the elbow down and to my face. Fucking rash is killing me, it itches.

Never knew I was allergic to sunscreen. So this is my current list of things I am allergic to:

1) Honey Dew and Cantaloupe melon
2) Kiwi fruit
3) Avocados ( I still eat them, they are yummy)
4) Sunscreen ( certain types)

What are you guys allergic to? Let get a list going. Cool

I'm not allergic to anything specific, however, i do have an odd occurrence which I'll describe now!

Basically, if I eat food that contains any kind of spicy reaction to my tongue (a Zinger Tower Burger, an Indian Curry dish, etc)... well, that's fine. I have no problems there.

However, issues arise IF I decide to drink a carbonated drink in quick succession (say, a nice cold glass of Coke or 7up after a hot curry)... big mistake.

My tongue basically becomes super sore, swells up to Jamie Oliver size proportions and becomes coated with ulcer like sores! Very painful.

After 15-20 mins or so, it actually all goes down and is fine, but if I'm not quite thinking, it will catch me out. Only water or milk is acceptable it seems.

I'm absolutely fine with carbonated drinks at ANY other time.

Weird...

I'm a little bit sensitive to sunlight. I've got Polymorphous light eruption (http://en.wikiped...t_eruption). Only on some of my fingers though and the small bumps don't itch (sometimes they're slightly painful), so it's not that bad.

That sounds tough Cthulhu. Do you have to avoid the sun all the time?

Could be serious with the tongue swelling. Allergy combinations do happen . Yeast and cheese/tomato is quite a common one. I spoke to someone once who had an allergy specifically to cheese and tomato sandwiches and pizza. I had trouble with pizzas for a few years myself.

As for me, too many. Only pollen originally, but since a serious illness a few years ago, which messed up my immune system - practically everything. Alcohol is the worst sadly. Also things you wouldn't think it was possible to be allergic to: like electrical fields and wi-fi. Really screws up my gaming and it can take me a few days to watch a film on a TV but it does mean I do a lot of old fashioned things like reading, talking to people and not checking my phone constantly.

I'm with you on the avocados 2D Thumbs Up, no allergy for me thankfully but love how they taste.

It sound more serious than it really is for me...I've got a mild form of PMLE. I only get some small red bumps on some of my fingers and sometimes they're a little painful, the ony thing is that I've got it all year long, as long as the UV index is quite high. Most people only have the symptoms during the beginning of spring (when the UV index goes up) and they go away after a specific amount of exposure to sun light.
So no, I won't avoid any sun light, my life isn't affected by it luckily...I've seen pictures of people way worse than me, all extremities covered almost completely...I've only got 3-6 fingers with only a few bumps...so I'm lucky.

Wow, you guys have some very unfortunate allergies!

Pizza, soda pop, booze, sunlight ?

I guess I should feel lucky I don't have any allergy to any of those !

Thanks for making me feel better guys.

@ Riko - Yeah dude, avocados are one of nature's greatest gifts.

That sucks that you guys have all these allergies. I didn't realize people could have a 'dual allergy' to two different foods/drink consumed at the same time like Ninja's allergy.

Fortunately I don't have any allergies myself (not that I'm aware of anyway). A family member does have a nut allergy though. Fortunately it's not really serious but it's still quite unpleasant for them when accidentally eating something containing nuts.

I haven't eaten an avocado for many years. I've forgotten what they taste like. I will buy some because of this thread!

I've only recently started to get into Avocado's. I'm on a really strict, protein rich diet at the moment, and I have 2 Avocados a day - usually with Grilled Chicken Breast and Boiled Brown Rice, combined with either Asparagus or Spinach.

Regardless of whether your on a diet or not, I still recommend this dish. It's INSANELY good for you...
