  • So when I was like 12 I touched a bell pepper and I got hives and felt like I couldn’t breath but I’m also allergic to sulfur which is in a lot of pesticides. I really want to try bell peppers cause they are my husbands favorite I don’t know if the reaction was from the pepper or the sulfur should I try bell peppers again?

  • Very interesting. I am to be fair very allergic to many things, I've made treatment during my teen years, I need to go for treatment with an Allergist again, and one of the things I have most reactions nowadays is to milk (i'm allergic to milk protein). What I think it's very weird is that when I got tested years ago, I used to have minimal allergic reactions, so I didn't care that much and continued to consume milk, however, within a couple years I started having more severe allergic reactions, and up to this day everytime it get's worse, and I need to check everything to see if theres milk innit etc, even some flu shots that has milk protein on its composition, i experienced a considerable allergic response, but not immediately (never had an anaphylactic shock, but now i'm starting to be afraid I could have one)

  • Excuse me!? I have tried many years to get the flu shot, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I get full body hives, tongue swelling, eyes swelling shut and itchy throat. But I eat eggs with no issues. Sooooo......?

  • So, in terms of flu shots, how would you explain side effects? i've only seen resources saying they don't exist, and doctors have only told me it's not from flu shots. My experience, however, has been that every year I get the flu shot, I have full body aches and weakness, itching everywhere, dizziness, and sometimes nausea and stomach issues. Severity goes from "this is yucky but I'm still alive" to "this is debilitating and worse than the flu," changes from year to year. (One year I couldn't raise my arm above 90 degrees for half the year, but that was from Walgreens and hurt like a mf on injection, which makes me think that one was from the needle rather than the vaccine. Other than that one, injection is usually 99% painless) If it weren't for the health and safety of those around me, I wouldn't get the flu shot. I would honestly rather have the flu, but I wouldn't want to give it to anyone around me. It's all honestly kinda, idk, isolating. Everything else I experience, there's someone else to say "oh, me too." With this it's just "no, that's impossible, so it's not happening." Possibly maybe relevant information: The only thing I've ever had a *severe* reaction to was Gardacil. They thought my symptoms were a coincidence on the first dose, but after I reacted worse to my second one they decided to stop giving it. (If someone who's not a doctor is for some reason reading this random comment, they usually give three rounds). I *have* noticed recently that I get an angry stomach with eggs, but I still need to talk with my doctor about it to figure out if it's an intolerance or coincidence. (It's not an allergy (well, I'm not a doctor, but I really doubt it), I've eaten eggs my whole life without anaphylaxis. I've had stomach issues my entire life, which got much better when I stopped eating eggs.) I know you said that egg allergy can't affect flu shots, I just thought it would be relevant to mention. My question for Dr Mike is why? Whyyy do I react so badly, and why am I always told it's not real? My question for anyone randomly scrolling through the comments, do you relate? I just want to hear from atleast one person who's experienced this too cuz it's scary and aaaaaa

  • Hello Dr Mike, I'm asthmatic and I took a flu shot for the first time last year October. I had palpitations for a few minutes then it stopped. But in November I had one of the most severe asthma attacks since childhood. I had a repeat in December and another one in January this year. I don't remember the last time I had a back to back attack in about 15yrs. Consistently in 15yrs I get sick at most twice a year and at very long intervals so I strongly believe the flu shot triggered something (I have no proof it's just a gut feeling). Because of that I'm uncomfortable taking another shot this year. And my biggest concern is the Corona Virus vaccine since it has flu like symptoms. I asked my doctor and he told me not to take the flu shot again because of that reaction. Being a big advocate for flu shot I want to know what you think. Thanks and God bless🤗

  • As someone who got allergies as I got older, and whose allergies are seemingly random (with many of my other medical issues) and everyone is stumped. My doctors don't seem to understand what could be going on and it's so frustrating because half of my doctors believe me and the others don't. Which is so frustrating. And watching this just made me happy that doctors will listen to their patients.

  • I have a question. I went to the doctor and had my tDap booster. I had a really, really bad reaction to it that lasted about 2 years and is most likely undiagnosed Guillan Barre syndrome. Should I avoid the flu vaccine? I am afraid to get it and have another reaction like that. I had severe muscle weakness, deep, all over body pain, and other symptoms that really affected my life for about 2 years. I was never diagnosed with anything because every time I went to the doctor he would just tell me that I couldn’t still be having a reaction and blamed it on anxiety.

  • I only know that there are peanut, pollen and gluten allergy when I moved to Singapore in my early 20s. I had allergy reactions when I ate honeycomb and flying white ants (yes we ate that in my village) when I was young but it was minor. Itching, rashes and a bit of swelling on the skin but after drinking warm water and my late grandma applied salt all over my body, I was fine. I don't understand how that worked then. Coming from a village where we play with soil and where the environment is not always hygienic like metropolitan city and country like Singapore or US is, I never had food poisoning when I was living and growing up there but after living for 1 or 2 years in Singapore then went back to my hometown for a day or 2 and had street food, I got food poisoning when I came back to Singapore. I had diarrhoea and vomitting for 2 weeks and fever then decided to go to clinic to be treated. My body was losing so much water and shrinking. I guess my body or immune system has changed over time and that is pros and cons living in hygienic and non hygienic environment.

  • Interesting re the penicillin allergy . . .whilst not technically an 'allergy' my nephew would go all hyper active, almost climbing the walls and at risk to running out into the traffic etc. So the doctor was warned along the lines of "If you prescribe that, then you can look after him!" I can take penicillin - it works like magic! . . but, other family members derive no beneficial result from taking it. Whilst that may not be an 'allergy' as such, the medication sure isn't going to fix their medical problem.

  • I know this is HIGHLY ANECDOTAL, but I have a shrimp/shellfish allergy and have always hated the smell of them (cooked or raw) for as long as I can remember. After watching this I actually have to wonder if my aversion to the smells was because of the allergy of if the aversion caused it as a child. Just some food for thought. Also I only know of my "allergy" because of a skin test when I was young, so it might be a false positive...but I'm not gonna take that risk over something the smells like death to me.

  • Dr Mike, I came across this recently and don't know if you will see this comment, let alone answer it. My child, who is not allergic to eggs had two different allergic reactions to vaccines. MMR , temp 106 and swelling, especially below the waist. She was wearing winter weight tights that the ER staff had issues cutting of because her legs had swollen that much. The second was pertussis, and she spent about 2 days having seizures. I don't know if the fact that the MMR was a repeat shot because her shot records had gotten lost compounded the problems. She was about 2 when she had the pertussid vaccine, and just going into school 4 when she had the the MMR vaccine. Her younger siblings her never been vaccinated because I'm wasn't willing to take the chance again. People have also told me that her being on the autistic/ADHD (diagnosed) spectrum could be linked to these reactions.

  • When I clicked on this video I was like please talk about oral allergy syndrome, and they did which made me sooo happy. I got prick tested around a year ago and I reacted to the stuff I knew I was going to react to just due to family history. But i reacted fastly to all the tree pollens ( along with other things) so I found out I have allergies from bloom to frost which kind of sucks when you love the outdoors and live in the Midwest. I also found out I also had oral allergie syndrome. growing up my family and friends thought I was crazy when I would say I get an itchy ear canal, throat, lips/mouth when eating certain foods. But then when I got tested and finally got the proof to show that I wasn't crazy was so relieving. 😄

  • My kids and I suffer from terrible birch pollen allergies. Our oral allergy syndrome is so incredibly severe. This past year wasn't so bad, but in past years, the symptoms have put me into anaphylaxis specifically with fresh cherries. My daughter has an EpiPen because her medical team has determined that her allergies have spread beyond just severe reactions to birch pollen and we are finding she reacts to so many different foods now, it isn't worth the risk of not having one around. It sucks. What is really interesting is that I can eat granny smith apples in the fall and winter, but have to avoid all apples in spring and summer. Last year was awful because of our mild temp winter, but this year was better because it was a very cold and dry winter, which apparently the trees were not happy with. It's fascinating and crappy all at once, lol.

  • I dont know if the no dairy is a myth on my part. I always would get very stuffed up during the winter months to the point where I would get a lot of pain due to the sinus congestion. I wasnt eating terrible but I wasnt eating super healthy either. This went on for years until one year I ended up giving up dairy products, didnt change my eating habits any more or less then just giving up diary so I still wasnt eating better or worse. I did not do it for the intention to see how I would be during the winter months, I just did it for ethical reasons. It wasnt until winter came and went that year that I later noticed I did not have any sinus congestion pain, no infections or living like I was constantly stuffed up. I continued to notice the benefits of not consuming dairy products and have not had any issues since then. Its hard for me to believe that the body doesn't produce extra mucus or have an effect of consuming/not concusming dairy when I noticed a huge change in me, also, I was not consuming massive amounts of dairy either lol nor was I lactose intolerant. I personally would have loved to have seen any articles of the studies done/not done about this subject linked somewhere for me to read up on.

  • For many years, I thought I was allergic to dogs. Then when I was tested, there was no reaction. My allergist said that it probably wasn't the dog itself triggering my allergies, but all the environmental debris the dog would roll around in outside, like pollen, grass, ragweed, mold, etc (all of which I *was* allergic to). So sometimes getting tested can be a great way to pinpoint any issues to bring them under control.

  • So I once had a few bad cases of strep throat in the course of a few months. I had it twice then the third time it was found to actually be a non strep tonsil infection. The first couple times i was prescribed amoxicillin and i never had a reaction. The third time i was prescribed Cefdinir and after i finished the whole bottle i broke out into full body hives that didnt go away for a about a week after i was given steroids. Was that an allergic reaction or just like a side effect?

  • Lol at reflux is a laundry problem! But seriously, there are so many practical things you can do for a refluxy baby. One of the simplest being keep the baby upright for like 30 minutes before laying them down and don't feed them directly before bed (wait like 30 minutes). also Breast feeding is best but does not eliminate either reflux or colic. just adjust your own eating to avoid either windy food or refluxy food.

  • DR. MIKE I had the same thing happen with Mono and Amoxicillan at the age of 18. Took an allergy test, the skin scratch kind, a couple years later and I'm not allergic to penicillin. However, I probably would still have the reaction to amoxicillan as it likely hasn't been long enough since last exposure. I've deduced that I may be "allergic" or have delayed onset to Amoxicillan but likely not the entire family of penicillin. I haven't exactly taken anything else to confirm this suspicion but after watching this video it might be interesting to explore whenever I may get another minor infection of some sort if I can receive a different penicillin relative drug and not have the same reaction as the Amoxicillan gave me. Interesting, no? Curious if you'd ever considered this as well.

  • Both my kids were preemies and I am immune compromised. Both of them have a food to cashews, one to peanuts. Both reacted immediately the first time they tasted it. I wonder then if the constant carefulness with germs had anything to do with it. My breastfed, peanut allergic child had terrible eczema starting from just a few months old and was introduced to peanut butter around 10 months adjusted age. I stopped eating peanut butter myself after that reaction and the eczema has been completely clear ever since. I'm convinced the 'eczema' was hives caused by the allergy and that it was passing through into my milk. I was eating peanut butter almost daily with my older child. Anyone know of the likelihood of that?

  • There is an old saying in Chinese "不干不净吃了没病" which means "not that tidy not that clean, you won't catch anything from eating it", I guess it's kinda making more sense to me know after I watched this video, cuz our immune systems would actually be stronger if we don't live that "clean". I am not saying we shouldn't care about personal hygiene, it's still very important, but sometimes maybe some exposures to "unclean" things may help us.

It was prepared and stratified for in vivo studies and in vivo human studies at NIH and found more than two handfuls of peer-reviewed studies. It was shrugged off.

  • I realize this video posted in February, however... The reason why singers shouldn't drink milk is because milk is a cold beverage and cold beverages make your vocal chords constrict. Singers don't want that. As a trained musician in classical voice, only room temperature water. for me. (And I'm so sure about this that I'm pretty certain that this is a myth too.) And I swear, if one more of my friends tells me they just spent money on a "hypoallergenic dog" instead of going to their local shelter.... Dr. Mike, love your channel, btw!

  • Hey dr mike, love your videos,I am a survivor of a brain aneurysm, and when I tell my story, people usually think I’m lying, because the survival rate of a rupture is so low, I wish this stigma would change, because role can survive them I am 100% proof

  • I always hear and read that vaccines are an injection of virus corpses like you said, but if that’s true how come it takes time to develop a vaccine? The COVID19 vaccine is taking months and months, but there’s no shortage of access to the virus from what countries are reporting. I’d really like to understand what’s going on here. Pluto is a Dwarf Planet, along with Ceres, Eris, et cetera. So it’s still a planet, just a verrry small one. I’m not an astronomer but from what I understand we use to think it was bigger than it actually is because of its visibility at its distance, and because it has a moon. It’s common astrological knowledge now that plenty of dwarf planets in the solar system also have moons, but that was not always the case so it sounds reasonable to me. Also there wasn’t always the classification of Dwarf Planet, and it is still not universally accepted. So there was resistance to the reclassification even with those understandings becoming common knowledge.

  • This video is inspiring, but as a person suffering symptoms of allergies and astma for 30 years - I just lost all will to approach this hopefully. Random inflamation in skin, throat, nose polyps, digestion problems from both random ingredients to genuine side effects of daily use. Your mind is constantly torn into two directions - self diagnosis and avoidance or medication and its fluctuations.

  • Hi Dr Mike! Really enjoying hour content! I have a question about allergies. My mom is in her early 60s and starting end of 2019, she started experiencing “random” episodes of what we believe to be allergic reactions. Her eyes would get super swollen almost to the point of eyes shut, nasal fully congested and must breathe through her mouth and an itchy/scratchy throat. Till today she probably has experienced these episodes 10 times. The first time that happened I brought her to the ER. They gave her a benadryl shot and that was pretty much it. By the time a physician saw her her symptoms had slowly begun to calm down. She’s seen her family physician who also referred her to an allergy specialist. They did the prickle on the skin test and found she has no allergies to foods/environment. For the most part she might take a Benadryl if she starts to feel that scratchy throat and itchy eyelids and for the most part that prevents it from a full scale attack. Allegra and Reactine does not have the same effect so she sticks with Benadryl. What do you think may cause this? What other steps do you recommend my mom to take to try and get a diagnosis for this?

  • When I was a kid I was so allergic to Benedryl. I broke out in severe hives and it caused breathing issues. I was put one Nasalcrom when I was Better but that cause me to get irritation in my throat and made it very raw. But then about 4 years ago when I was seeing my PCP. He gave a script for Diphenhydramine. Not knowing it was Benedryl. Took it, and I was fine. It then of course the drowsy effect happens. I seriously slept for 14 hours from it! When I woke up still was feeling crappy. Had to take a low dose of it by cutting it in half. But the drowsy effect still gets me bad. So now I’m on Flonase. Which helps better! But when I was sick recently and couldn’t sleep due to coughing and nasal congestion. I did take some Benedryl to sleep and rest. And that helps a lot!

  • benadryl is the best. Don't knock benadryl.It is the only thing other than maybe aerius and a steroid nasal spray (a particular one not flonase) that works for me. But beandryl is cheap and the nasal spray is not. I don't understand people who love claratin or reactin because they do ABSOLUTELY nothing for me. I don't even get drowsy from bendryl. so no prob

  • I am VERY offended by the misinformation they’re presenting in this video - Pluto will ALWAYS be a planet to me and you can never take that away from me. Viva la Pluto!! 😭
