  • Being allergic to love ♥
  • I do know of some odd ones, but not that extreme. I'm allergic to so many things, mostly drugs (a litany of antibiotics...I'm so lucky). I have a weird reaction (not sure it's an allergy) to galvanized metal. Whenever I touch the stuff I break out in hives and a horrible rash. We hypthosize that it's due to the large amount of zinc present in the metal and in the oils on the metal. My husband has a weird oral reaction to peppermint and peppermint oils. He can't use any toothpaste with peppermint in it or he gets horrible sores in his mouth.
  • I'm allergic to a lot of things, including Christmas trees (furs, I guess). I have known this for a while. I mostly get congested and my eyes get itchy. I still like to get a 'real' tree for the kids though. This year was over the top though. After decorating the tree, my hands and arms broke out in hives!!! Also, I was sneezing and wheezing and itchy all over this year, while the tree was up. It was insanity! Next year we might have to get a fake tree... :(

  • I've known people to be allergic to metal. I'm allergic to grass,tree nuts, some antibiotics, and Scotchguard! My sis is allergic to tree nuts, and shellfish. The weirdest of those to me, it the scotchguard!!
  • I knew someone with a rare allergy to lactose. Milk! Of all things! Crazy... :P
  • I have several food allergies due to a leaky gut. Severe milk protein, soy, gluten, some fibrous vegitables, citrus fruits, the list goes on and on. My strangest allergy would be to chlorine. I have to have special filters on all my faucets & shower head to have the chlorine filtered out. Special purifier on the water tank too. I cannot drink regular tap water and i most defintaley cannot swim in any pool that's been treated with chlorine. Unless of course I want to my skin to burn and itch. I've learned to deal with it all but the sad part is my 12 month old baby girl is suffering with this too :(
