    Question. I have been suffering with this since I was 10yrs old.
    First after climbing a tree I had poison of some type because I was itchy.
    About a month after that the splotches kept coming and it was excema.
    I have use steroid creams,shea butter,vaseline,oatmeal,black soap,blessed oil to make it better.When I got to about 13 yrs old I had aquirred an allergy to seafood,all of it.Then at 18 I could no longer eat,nuts,tomatoes,,then at 21 I couldn't eat,asian food,spices,anything with fish ingrediants. The first skin allergy test I received was 3 yrs ago.All of this came up plus! eggs which I throw up if I even taste a corner of an egg,squash,anything egg based, no cakes,cookies,dressing,potato salad,baked macaroni,avocado's,ethnic foods with spices or eggs.My thanksgiving and christmas was awful as far as eating goes.I baked 15 pies and 1 cake and I couldn't even taste the batter without running to the bathroom and throwing up!
    25 bottles of expensive perfume and my doc said to not use them,yeah ok! I have to change soaps and deodorants every 3-5 months because I'll be ok fora minute then all of a sudden my body rejects it!I am only to suppose to wear cotton cloths also.
    I can't have carpet or open vents which I have in my apartment but I didn't have it before.Parks,forest preserves,all animals with fur that shed especially cats!:maddd: My grandmother has 4 and she had 17,I couldn't even step in her house then. My aunt does my hair and she still lives there so
    yesterday I got my hair done and I look like the devils mistress by the eyes and I'm sniffling with a scratchy voice!I'm this way just about evryday!
    They tried immunotherapathy but that's just environmental and those **** shots gave me swimmers ear almost every week.Sinus drains in my throat,nose,eyes and ears:maddd:
    It's chronic allergy induced asthma, I take advare,steroids when needed,albuterol,singulair,bennadryl when needed,allegra d,humidifier,eye drops,nasonex, this rediculous and the sad part is if I stop taking this,any of it which I do I'm so messed up!No energy what's so ever! I don't know what happened to me when I was little or born but the doc told me my body attacks me as if I were the enemy! Two doc suggested chemo!
    Does anyone have any advice at all! Thanks!

    Top eating all bread and wheat products and you'll be better in a week.

    Because bread is a wheat product.

    Most people are allergic to wheat products and it disturbs their immune system making them allergic to other things.

    If you elimate the wheat, usually you can tolerate everything else.


    Breads, cakes, cookies, pies, pastas....all should be eliminated.

    I came across Multi-Grain muffins, and when I looked at the ingredients, I seen everything that was conducive to good health. How about these?

    And as for stopping the breads, cakes, etc., what are the alternatives? It is very easy to stop eating stuff, but then it is hard to replace them.

    I suffer from all 3 as well...
    Dairy products have always triggered it...
    I've heard cutting out gluten products does too.
    Not drinking alcohol and smoking.

    I can't use lots of store soaps.
    Wear fake jewelry, anything with nickel.
    Wear perfumes.
    Can't use certain laundry detergents.
    As well as scented lotions.

    I also get really bad heat rash when out in the sun too long or when I begin to sweat.

    It sucks!
