  • What about full blown wide-spectrum adult onset allergies? I never started getting allergies (except for cats, I've always been allergic to cats) until I started puberty. As I got older, I developed severe mold, dust, tree and grass pollen allergies (I couldn't even cut the grass for 10 minutes, after taking allergy medication 20-30 minutes prior), and when I was about 15 I started developing food allergies (oral). In my 20s, I started getting stomach upset (severe pain) and cramping when I'd eat an oral allergen (I couldn't stay away from bananas, they were my favorite). Its to the point now, where in the last 5 years (I'm 31), I can't even eat banana bread anymore- it just feels like a rock in my gut and a knife being twisted in my stomach at the same time. I'm super allergic to a ton of different animals now, too. I'm allergic to even more foods than I'm NOT allergic to. It's quite irritating trying to eat anywhere besides my own home because even a cross contamination will send me home with a swollen mouth/throat and upset gut. I haven't gone into full blown anaphylaxis (yet), but I have broken out in hives several times within a few hours of eating, and I even have adverse reactions to the medicine they give you to stop the hives 😑 I'm on several different allergy medications (abuterol as needed, generic Flonase, generic Singulair AND zyrtec *daily* for the last 4.5 years) and *still* have severe reactions.

  • I do know that because I have cEDS, there are some things that all cEDS zebras have in common...but at the same time, certain things are absolutely unique to each person. My doctor had never met someone with any type of EDS before me, but he was incredibly open to learning as much as possible, and was happy to read any info I brought in for him to familiarize himself with, strictly because this particular issue was something I had to deal with. My PCP is now better educated in this syndrome, and I am a happy, well cared for patient. Big thing is he LISTENS to me, and trust me to know my own body. He also knows that if I come in complaining of pain? It’s BAAAAD, because I detest pain medication and he knows it, lol. (He also had to learn that after a lifetime of doing it, both my husband and I KNOW how to reduce my partial and even full subluxations and can instantly tell if it’s in or not. If I can’t get it, I’ll come in. It makes him a bit green sometimes, lol, but I do occasionally have to come in). I’m actually one of those people who DO occasionally react to vaccinations. It’s not that huge of a deal, I just get it at our local ER, and they stand by with the epi, which HAS been needed about a handful of times (I’m 53). Yet I can absolutely eat eggs without a single problem. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Ah the joys of being a statistical weirdo, lol.

  • So I'm not allergic to penicillin (I literally just got off it) but both my grandmother and mother are and their allergy to it didn't occur until they were adults. My mom's happened in her early 20's, and my grandmother's happened in her 30's. I am the only person in my family without allergies somehow.

  • Give dog or cat a bath every two to four weeks. The bath washes away dander and with greatly reduced dander, there is little to no allergic reactions. Yes a cat can have a regular bath, shower. Start when kitten and they look forward to their bath.

  • I wish I had this guy as my allergy specialist. I had my first and also very severe allergic reactions about 1-2 years ago. I was never allergic to anything and then I guess my body changed. I ended up in the ER TWICE IN A ROW because I had zero clue as to what was causing it. Also am apparently allergic to Benadryl. So when I took it. It made it all worse. I literally looked like someone tried to burn me alive with cooking oil or acid. my skin had bubbles as if i was burned. my eyes where so swollen i couldn't see. I felt like someone lit me on fire. I was in so much pain. I went to the allergy specialist and when i circled the whole body on the chart on the paper. I could hear the nurses laughing that it was impossible. When they went out to get me. They both shut up immediately wide eyed. all of my skin was covered in welts, rash, hives, swelling, itching, burning. The only thing I didn't have was that my throat didn't close. I was having such a bad reaction. My skin was even reacting to human touch. Apparently my histamines was so high I developed something called, Demotographia? I saw the specialist for all but 10 minutes after they did a full allergy test. He basically just said he was surprised i was alive because my histamine levels were deathly high. He basically told me I was screwed. He didn't really give me any advice or comfort and just said that i had to take 10 shots a week. (Which I can't afford even after insurance) The nurses were extremely rude. I tried the allergy test for a month until my wallet ran dry from how expensive it is. Plus I was tired of the nurses using my arms as target practice. I had to go to my primary physician and had him prescribe me epipens for emergencies and he ordered me some cream for relief of when my skin burns, flonase for when its spring time allergies and over the counter zyrtec for everything else. I'm able to avoid most foods although its difficult when i have a rare allergy to rice and most foods contain rice. At least thanks to Covid I don't look weird wearing a mask outside. Its unfortunate that there are bad health care staff giving good health care staff bad rep. I had such a terrible experience there that i've refused to seek help again for my definitely out of control allergies.

  • I'm one of those people that my medical file says I have a penicillin allergy, but I do not. I've been allergy tested and currently receive shot therapy. I had chronic nasal and eye allergies with random hives that wasn't controllable with daily medication. So, I asked for a referral and I got a prick test. I had about 30 substantial positives from the standard back panel, but ZERO of them were mold allergies. Mold was the only class of common allergens I had no reactions to. I was allergic to almost of the animals, and literally every pollen except for plantain weed. Many of the trees I was tested for don't even exist in the part of the world I live in, but I was still highly reactive to them. As part of getting care for my allergies, the clinic took over my asthma treatment as well. No one in my family has asthma except for me, and I didn't have childhood asthma. Although I remember teachers asking me in high school and maybe even in middle school if I had asthma or an inhaler, so maybe I did and no one thought to mention it to my parents to have me tested. I started developing noticeable asthma in my early 20s, after an episode of bronchitis/borderline walking pneumonia. My asthma only got worse as I got older. Well as it turns out I have chronic inflammation asthma not spasmatic constrictive asthma. Lung testing revealed that the medications my GP had been attempting to control my asthma with, didn't have a particle size small enough to reach the area of my lungs where the inflammation was occurring. After getting on a different steroid with a smaller particle size my asthma improved drastically. My lung function is so much better now through a combination of the right steroids and the years of allergy shots, that my doctor is now attempting to wean me off the steroids over the next few years, and has reduced my steroids. Anyway, point of this comment was to point out that I do not have a penicillin allergy as it turns out. However, even after telling my other doctors I don't actually have that allergy, most of them choose to keep penicillin listed as an allergy. My understanding is that although I am not allergic I still have significant side effects from antibiotics in the penicillin family (such as diarrhea, stomach cramping, and vomiting,) so they still obviously do not want to prescribe them to me, and keeping it on my chart as an allergy is just an easy way to avoid me being given the medication. Also, I'm really happy you touched on the whole auto-immune being an overactive immune system. I am also in the auto-immune spectrum. I've had to explain to SO many other people that having an auto-immune condition doesn't mean you have an weakened immune system UNLESS you are taking steroids to treat your condition which is literally weakening your immune system to manage your illness. I developed hypothyroid at 16, which seemed awfully early, early enough I struggled to find a doctor willing to medicate me despite my blood results. My GP at the time wasn't comfortable prescribing me synthroid, because I was "young" and should be able to "push through it" despite my symptoms being severe. Her advice to me was to exercise more. I was sleeping 15 hours a day, felt like I was starving constantly. I literally hid food in my pockets and in my backpack to eat during classes. I slept through so much of high school I ended up graduation 2 years late. I even had teachers whose classes I was unable to stay awake during accuse me of being on drugs. My high school advisor even recommended I just drop-out and get a GED. My memory was shot, my hair was thinning, even when my stomach was full I felt like I was starving, I had joint pain, but surprisingly I didn't gain that much weight. It took over a year of convincing to get my mother to get a second opinion, which is weird, because she has hypothyroid, so you'd think she would have understood. Anyway I ended up getting on the meds and my life totally changed, those years are a blur, my brain woke back up, I went from being a Ds & Fs student to an As & Bs student. My hypothyroid rapidly progressed to where by 25 I was on full replacement with no hope of ever getting any functions back. Around the time I was 20 I had enough of my doctor under prescribing my thyroid over an abundance of caution and got a referral and found myself an endocrinologist. Hypothyroid isn't enough to see an endocrinologist over normally, but I insisted. They immediately got me on the right dose that managed my symptoms and was still well inside the bell curve. I asked this doctor, why is my hypothyroid so bad? Why did I get it so young? He explained to me about hashimoto's, it's assumed I have that. We decided that my insurance might not cover it, but he could order a thyroid aggressive antibody test, and check my levels. Well, they were VERY high, about 100% higher than normal. I learned so much from that one test. My endocrinologist immediately was able to take that test and tell me I was 99.9% confirmed to have hashimoto's and laid out the progression of my condition would follow clear as day. Basically, just a downward slope, steadily worsening, until I hit the bottom. Told me what to expect from it for the rest of my life, making me an advocate for my own health. No expectation of recovering any function, once I hit that full replacement (which happened rapidly, within a couple years), he told me to get tested 30 days after I start or stop estrogen birth control, as soon as I get pregnant to call and have my dosage increased BEFORE it shows up in my bloodwork or I'll be chasing hypothyroid the whole pregnancy, and he told me my medication would need to go down after menopause. He explained to me the whole relationship between estrogen and T4 that gets stored into fat cells, how the medication bonds to calcium in the gut making that molecule too large to pass into the blood stream through the bowels, and how the auto-immune condition damages the thyroid so the pores that convert T3 to T4 become scarred. I learned so much from him that now I find myself educating other women in my life that are newer to having hypothyroid. BTW I am now 32 now, I'm a fine dining chef. I did go on to do about two years of college toward Bachelors of Science with double majors in Biochemistry and Biological Sciences and maintained a 4.0 GPA while working, before I ended up having to drop-out due to medical and financial problems. I originally wanted to get into genetic research in the academic field and professorship, but I never finished my degree. There were lots of reasons for this, but I ended up sort of falling into the culinary field. I started making waves and climbing the culinary ladder quickly and I enjoyed the work. I am now getting a chef certificate with honors, considering going into chef consulting and or teaching in the future. I often found that when I was sick regularly, or very sick, my thyroid didn't drop as much. However, when I had lengths of 6-12 months were I hardly got ill at all, my thyroid function would tank. It really seemed like when my immune system wasn't occupied, it attacked my thyroid more aggressively than times when I had a lot of exposure to infections.

  • Pluto is a dwarf planet according to the guys who determine what celestial bodies have what characteristics. There was some sort of vote that was taken over the evidence by these taxonomists, and the answer was fraught with uncertainty. This is not firsthand info to me. But even though these people determined Pluto not to be a planet but a dwarf planet,many scientists are still arguing. I find it funny that this happened right around the time a tenth planet (including Pluto as 9) came around. I find it funny that someone called it "Planet X" (and then Xena with moon Gabrielle) and then someone demoted it to planet 9. I think they were being the most awful party pooper.

She is also deadly allergy to strawberries like my mom is with pineapple. (i feel proud i saved my mom. we got fried rice from a grocery store food salad bar, i was eating that part on my plate first, found something sweet and squishy, and warned my mom. She could not eat 90% of the food, but we grabbed something else for her. We were peeved because it was not on the list of what the fried rice had in it.

Nope!! I was prescribed amoxicillin since I was allergic to z pack well all was good until I had to take Benadryl again for allergies, then I hived up again! I’ve since in the last years taken amoxicillin alone and been perfectly fine and same with Benadryl, but the moment I took them both I had head to toe hives. I’ve had doctors laugh in my face when I tell them this and say there is no way and I’m wrong. What causes this?

  • 2:07 man THANK YOU FOR THIS. i had to switch my daughter's pediatrician because she came in with a chronic dry cough, no other symptoms, we've had dogs in the home since before she was born and 5 years in she gets this cough, and the ped is immediately just "it's dog allergies." didn't do any tests whatsoever, wouldn't listen to anything else i had to say. she had this cough for EIGHT MONTHS because her ped wouldn't consider any diagnosis other than allergies and wouldn't prescribe anything other than claritin and nebulizers. when i finally switched... bronchial infection. an aggressive round of antibiotics and she was right as rain, cough never came back. my husband also gets a lot of doctors waving off his chronic rhinitis as allergies even when it is consistent year-round and in any environment and he actually does have other allergies so he knows the difference between an allergic reaction and whatever's causing this constant runny nose.

She could not hold her formula down, she'd throw up (reflux) right after she'd been feed. I strongly disagree or at least this should have been said differently not told it's "normal". It was not a "Landry problem ". I'm no expert but I had be an advocate for her since she could not speak. I still love your content.

  • My husband starting having symptoms of allergies after we got out cat. Eyes swollen, nose running, and he would get better after being away from the cat for a while. We found Ace Allergy Drops for cats and found a vet that would prescribe it for us. It is 5 mg of Acepromazine mixed with 30 mg of water. I give this to Angus daily (only 6 drops) and after a couple weeks my husband's allergies lessened. We knew it was a hit or miss. 50% of people were "cured", while 25% had no change and 25% were helped. It is now 4 years later and Angus is still taking the allergy drops (we ran out once before and after a few days my husband started to get sick again) and my husband has to take allergy medicine twice a day. We didn't give up right away because we didn't want to break our daughters' hearts and didn't want to have to return the cat back to the rescue we got him from.

  • I recently learned that I may have a mild allergy to radishes. This was discovered when i tried a slice of dicon radish (large white radishes unsure of spelling sorry) and after trying it i commented that it had the same burning numbing flavor as red radishes. My sister and my mom(mom is a nurse) looked at me like i had 3 heads and informed me if it tasted numb i was probably mildly allergic and should be careful. It had never occurred to me that mild reactions could just include weird mouth stuff. To be fair all i ever heard about in school was the kind that can kill you.

  • As someone with a severe airborne peanut allergy, I have a question. My mother is expecting soon, and when the baby is old enough and ready to eat semi-solids, how will he be exposed to the allergens that I cannot be around?

  • I have some bad allergies (none at life threatening) but it has been so bad that I haven’t been able to smell (and sometimes not be able to taste) for 7 years. I’ve gotten polyps surgery, but it just helped me be able to breath, I am still disabled unfortunately. Idk what to do at this point lol

  • When I was 16 a spot test told me I was allergic to cats and dogs. Then around 24 I had blood test that said that I'm totally not allergic to cats or dogs BUT I am deathly allergic to guinea pigs! 🤔

  • Oh my gosh. Oral allergy syndrome. My parents thought I was lying for YEARS about celery, apples, and carrots making my mouth and tongue itch and swell because I never complained when they were cooked. Now I know that's actually a thing! Medical education, peewoop!

  • Hey Dr Mike, I understand that the use of antihistamines for allergies can be sedative to the point of being harmful. My Dr. has me on Vistaril to help with my anxiety. I'm not questioning my Doctors judgment, as the medication seems to help, I'm just curious what your opinion on antihistamines for anxiety relief is. (For context, I am a heavy drinker so my Dr. didn't feel comfortable prescribing a benzodiazepine, and I totally agree with his decision.)

  • I really don’t like Benadryl, because one time, I was kind of sick, like, a cold or something, and my family was going to look at a new car to buy. I was fine during the test drive and stuff, but my mom and dad left me and my younger brother in a little play room near a meeting room so they could talk to the sales person. Then, I woke up when my mom said it was time to go. So yeah. I really don’t enjoy feeling super sleepy, so I don’t take Benadryl very much.

  • I take Fexofenadine for my seasonal allergies (hayfever - I havent been diagnosed or tested but we believe it's likely grass I'm allergic to because I get rashes/itchiness if I touch grass and I get extra itchy/sneezy after someone nearby mows their grass). I usually only take it around spring-summer depending on the day but I sometimes need to take it at the beginning of autumn if the conditions make me symptomatic There's also some debate with my family on whether I'm allergic to house dust since I seem to get a runny nose even in the winter (outside of colds and such)

  • What a great informative video, that is necessary, especially as a singer with chronic allergies! I appreciate that you brought in a specialist. I have more clarity and less stress about this topic! Please can you cover more issues around E N & T ailments. Thanks.

  • The weird thing about this, I have what I term a weird dog allergy, I'm completely fine around mixed breed dogs, but around pure breeds, my allergies can be set off within seconds, yet no one can explain why, lol,

  • I usually only take my allergy medicine in the spring and summer, but I’ve continued longer just in case there are still some allergens out there that would cause covid like symptoms this year. Can there be any issues due to not stopping your otc allergy medication?

  • Vaccines contain toxins as well which has its own side effects which cause issues. I get horrific ill if I get ANY vaccine. I am also living with vaccine related disabilities. Our current vaccines are NOT safe and I will not get any farther vaccines nor will I vaccinate my future children until our vaccines no longer contain chemicals that cause damage to the body. In my opinion vaccines aren't worth the risks or disabilities they come with.

  • I would be really interested to have my pencillin allergy re-tested. As a toddler I had severe anaphylaxis after penicillin but I'm 28 now and my medical records are still covered in the big red NO PENICILLIN. I did have an allergy screening a couple of years ago which flagged up dust mites, but I don't think they ever did re-check the penicillin. I also have awful side effects with the other antibiotics I've had too so I'm not allowed clarithromycin either. That was put down in my medical records alongside the pencillin but I don't think it was labelled an allergy. I learned a lot from this video that did surprise me, thank you!
