Has anyone seen a reaction like this?

Allergic reactions can be scary to experience and witness in ourselves and our loved ones. Especially when the allergic reaction looks or feels different than what we have seen or experienced before. Has anyone here ever witnessed or experienced a "new" or unexpected allergic reaction that was unlike past experiences?

Help us spread awareness and share knowledge together by posting a picture of your "new" or unexpected allergic reaction to see if others in the community have experienced something similar in their past!

  1. I find that nuts which are old smell different, and I think the oils in them deteriorate and I get mouth ulcers. Any hot pepper will do the same, but bell peppers are okay. There is a dental paste some allergists and dentists are familiar with, that I use, and my ulcers begin to heal in two or three days.

    1. , that's really interesting! I think you might be on to something about the oils in old nuts deteriorating. And thanks for mentioning the dental paste! I have not heard of it before, but now I learned something new today so thank you!

  2. I've had another one time allergic reaction, it felt like someone was squeezing my throat tightly. That was when I was allergic to flagyl.

    1. Oh gosh, that is so terrifying. The worst is that feeling when you can breath or catch your breath. Sorry you went through that. At least now you know to stay away from Flagyl. -Elizabeth (team member)

  3. Hi. Around two weeks ago I had an allergic reaction that presented itself with a slight rash on my neck that became itcht. A while later it spread to my right arm and it affected my breathing. It definitely was different than my usual allergic reactions.

    1. I've had that reaction once.

    2. Thankfully its been a one time thing. Reactions are always a bit frightening. -Elizabeth (team member)

  4. When I developed allergies to nuts and gluten, I experienced a reaction that differed from other previous reactions: mouth ulcers. I have read of others experiencing this reaction to nuts.
