    Cough Medicine (forgotten what type) - Made me blister and shed a layer of skin on my torso. Awful

    Pine Nuts - Makes my mouth feel like its burning

    Plasters - Gives me swelling, pussing and blisters and also can make me swell up. Especially if worn for a period over 5 hours or so.

    Mosquito bites - Makes me swell up, blister, gives me giant boils on the site, can make me feel faint and dizzy.

    Almond Essence - Makes my mouth and skin burn if I use it during cooking.

    I'm allergic to dust. As in, I can't hoover because it stirs dust up into the air. My eyes swell and close, I can't breathe properly and I sneeze and sneeze and sneeze. It also gives me a rash.
    I'm also allergic to certain make-ups (I coudn't tell you which) but usually the cheaper ones. Makes my skin all red and sore My mascara is a cheap one, though, and that's fine!

    Also, weirdly, I'm allergic to popcorn. Not anything else to do with corn, just popcorn. I get hives

    Not me (I just have a boring nut allergy that makes my mouth itch, and get hayfever), but I have a friend who is allergic to an incredible amount of stuff, including the preservative they put in with adrenaline in epipens, so she can't even carry one of those because it wouldn't help!

    the colouring in alcopops, especially blue WKD and premixed archers alcopops. Not sure why as they are different colours, and i can drink normal archers. Makes me feel like my head is on fire, get a rash on my neck and chest and crampy feeling in my torso. Fun fun before a night out when i discover a new one i cant drink!

    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?
    Yeah, ive been taking Loratadine for a few weeks now which is easing it alot, helps me get through the day without scratching myself to death. And no, I have no idea why I have it or whats causing it. I moved back into halls and that seems to have triggered it, but theres nothing strange here...

    i have this! chronic uticaria. I thought i was the only one....
    Apparantly its a sensitivity to being too hot or too cold. Calamine lotion is awesome
    I think mines going to be chronic, only have to wait a week before it gets identified as chronic. I have to try calamine, what is it exactly?

    semen - swell up, burn, sting & sometimes blister.

    pepper - burns, even just from smelling it in. worst case is my mouth and throat blistering.

    I've never met anyone else allergic to those.

    Ummm, semen as in semen? Or sea men as in sailors

    If the first option, can you have children?

    But seriously that is a random allergy

    lol semen as in semen. I think sea men would be a weirder allergy.

    I'm going for all the testing and stuff soon. it's only in the last year or two it's got bad, before it was a very mild reaction and I definitely could.

    edit: there was one time when my boyfriend had had a meal with cracked black pepper corns and then jizzed in my mouth a few hours later. Never has so much of my throat peeled off as it did then. plus the top of my mouth turned into gunge, it was really pretty gross.

    I was amused at first, when I read about testing, imagining someone giving you a skin test, where would you get the semen from? :laughing:

    But... then I read the edit. That doesn't sound nice, I hope you're okay!!
