  • real Christmas trees -- the last time we had a real tree I was miserable (from allergy symptoms), and I broke out in hives when I was putting the ornaments on. So ever since then we have put up fake trees.

  • I'm allergic to the plastic tape they use to tape down IVs and such in the hospital. Didn't realize this til I had to stay in the hospital on bedrest and it began to 'eat' away at my skin. My arms looked terrible. Finally figured it out and switched to cloth tape - no further issues.

  • Yeah, latex here, too. Luckily there are other birth control methods! Condoms are how I found out too.

  • Dog saliva and I have two dogs in the house...yeah it sucks. Also ants and walnuts.
    The non-odd things would be cats, dust, bees.

  • My dd is allergic to Mt Dew! Not sure exactly what it is in there but she gets something that looks like a chemical burn on her skin if she drinks or touches it.

  • I am horribly allergic to band-aids. Any adhesive against the skin, really. I'm also allergic to Neosporin, although that's pretty common.

  • I'm actually allergic to garlic of all things.. my parents tease me soo bad about it because my mom's side of the family going way back lived near transivania and my canines are a little more pointed than normal, and I don't tan well, so they call me their little vampire.
