    I'm allergic to paprika; I get terrible gripes in my stomach if I eat anything containing paprika.

    Oh, and I'm allergic to the SPF they put into lipbalms; they make my lips swell and itch - not that they need to be any bigger than they are already aaaah.

    Well I sneeze at sunlight, but that's not an allergy per se. My Physics teacher was the same and he explained the technical term but I can't remember it now.

    Aww =( Have you taken antihistamines? I had that when I ate a brazil nut choc back in June, knew I was allergic to it though. My whole body was itchy!! Urticaria is actually the posh word for nettle rash, which I find weird since it's not always caused by nettles :p:
    Any idea what brought it on?

    I get that, I used to have to be really careful with watches or jewellery or it'd be hell!


    Other than that penicillin, hay fever and some lactose intolerance, but none of them are unusual really.

    How can you say you're allergic to it if you've never had it?!
