I sneeze a lot at work. Not sure what is making me sneeze. I suspect I'm allergic to work :p I really do sneeze a lot especially in the teachers room. I just can't pinpoint what's making me sneeze. Once I'm outside I don't sneeze.

Is it just your skin that's allergic to it? Can you ingest it?

As much as I dislike soy, I'm totally addicted to iced grande soy latte......I can't live with out.
I'd be drinking that in 0 degree weather.

Lol as long as you enjoy it! It just sucks for me because I have to limit what I eat. Everything well almost everything has soy in it.

I rather have whole milk in my latte.....but I really don't have enough time to burn off all those fat calories......
This allergy has to suck though.....almost everything uses some soy or soy byproduct these days.
Even the beef in taco is made of soy!!

Yep and I found out the hard way, started a new diet that had soy in almost all of their products. I was getting so sick after day 4 I quit. That's how I found out.

They didn't put him on anything? Is it because he's so young? I would think they'd give him something.

His doctor said that since he is allergic to a lot of medicines then
a lot of allergy meds that can be giving for kids his age he's allergic
too. Therefore he can't have allergy meds.

Yikes! Medical allergies are scary. That must be really hard to deal with.

I had a weird reaction to a vaccine last year and my doctor thinks I might be allergic to the medium used to administer the vaccines. I'm in trouble if there's ever some kind of apocalyptic plague... or if I step on a rusty nail :eek:

Here's my number one tip for allergies - raw garlic! I know it sounds terrible but it's changed my life from being sick most of the time to only a few times a year. Works better than anti histamines and without the side effects.

I'm very allergic to nickel. So really limits the jewelry I can wear, snaps on blue jeans, zippers, and any other metals on clothing must be avoided. I have seasonal allergies in the fall. So not a huge issue at the moment.

My daughter on the other hand is allergic to dust mites. And they LOVE humidity and we've been getting a lot of rain so they are breeding and being extra active. We are having vacuum her bedroom daily just so she can sleep. She takes singular daily but some days even it's not quite strong enough. We will all be glad when the spring rains are over.

I had a similar situation... Maybe this will help your son...

I have a child with several medical needs. She has seasonal allergies to the point that she used to throw-up too. It only happened at night... I think it was the nasal drainage going from her nose, down her throat and into her stomach. Her stomach couldn't digest all that mucus, so she puked. Sorry I know that was really gross... I do have a point.

Can he take something to stop nasal drainage? Like a cold medicine?

That's a good idea. Or vicks vaporub rubbed under the nose causes less snot to be made.

I'm allergic to metal to. I can only wear gold and silver jewelry. Especially in Thailand when I sweat a lot. I had all metal frame glasses (very light weight) when I first came to Thailand. Didn't bother me in Canada. But in Thailand with sweating the back of my ears got sores and bled. I had to go buy glasses with plastic ends. I even bought a cheap watch off the street and same thing. I have to buy slightly more expensive watches from department stores. I have a belt and if the buckle comes in contact with my skin I get itchy red blotches on my stomach.
