Tussin. Like Robitussin, the cough syrup. 

My parents told me I was allergic to caffeine (and chocolate, which contains small amounts of caffeine) for 13 years, but that was a lie.

I have a “sensitivity” to sulfites since you cant be allergic supposedly. So that means I get a swollen tongue if I have too much wine or pickled anything.

I’m anaphylatic allergic to penicillian (and all it’s counter parts) kiwis and laytex.

I get sever hives from red food dye 10/11/12

I’m not allowed to have Sulpha (drug) and it makes my kidneys sweel, apparently that is not a normal allergic reaction :/

Horses, cows to a minor extent (sucks being a farm girl!) and cold medicine.

Nectarines and the skin on apples. They make my mouth and throat swell and get really itchy.

Another one with sulfite/sulfa/sulphonamide allergy- even the mineral sulfur.  It used to be just hives, now its anaphylactic shock (tongue, extremity swelling) and hives for weeks.  I’m extremely sensitive to trace amounts.

ETA: poison ivy, too!  I had open sores for a month last time.  Yuck.

Just had a thought, I think its MORE interesting that I am NOT allergic to poison ivy or mosquitos. I dont get itchy from them.

Amoxicillin and zithromax like in the Z-pack wonder drug.  I took them my whole life than at 21 I had a reaction to amoxicillin and at 23 to the z-pack.  It makes being sick difficult since they won’t prescribe me any penicillins now

There’s a list! Sulfa, sudafed, grass pollen, dust mites, everything in the melon family(which happens to be all my favorite fruits.. since i’ve just developed these allergies a few years ago,) cucumbers, & plums. It sucks!

I have sun allergies, and I’m apparantly intolerant of (but not allergic to) both dairy/lacrose and gluten, as well as all the good fruits.

Cats, horses, hay, grass, trees, wool, dust, and some kind of cold medicine that gave me hallucinations as a child. The list goes on, really. I just try to be careful around new things.

I have asthma and chronic dermatitis. I’m sensitive to a lot of things. I either can’t breathe or I’m scratching my skin off.
