    My daughter has a peanut allergy and we recently spent the night in the ER while she had a very serious reaction.  Watching her struggling to breath was pretty real!  Since I live in Canada, there is nothing to gain for the pharmaceuticals or the hospitals.


    If you think that these allergies are not real then you are lucky because there is a cure for ignorance!  There is no cure for allergies.

    My son has allergies. Until I switched his bath soap, my bath soap, our cleaning supplies and laundry detergant, he would cough every night and break out in a rash all over his body. Be thankful if your children don't. Many children have allergies.

    Seriously? Of course they are real, although I think a few parents take a minor allergy and make it into this huge ordeal for their kid.
    My son is severely allergic to cats and dogs. People bring their dogs to the school every morning when dropping kids off. If my son were to get too close he would have a reaction. As it is most mornings he heads into school with itchy, watery eyes and sneezing because of the dogs. I supposed I could throw a huge fit and make the school ban people from bringing their dogs to school but I don't. I just remind my son (who is 8) to stay away from the dogs and if his allergies get really bad in school to have them call me so I can bring him some benadryl.
    Luckily his dog allergy isn't as bad as his cat allergy and people don't bring cats to school. Just being within several feet of cat causes his face to swell up, his eye to go completely bloodshot and swell shut, then his face breaks out in hives, his lips start to swell up and turn blue...not a pretty sight. Luckily, so far his throat hasn't swelled shut. It doesn't take much to set off a reaction and we have to ask his friends if they have cats before he can go play at their house. His one friend has 2 cats and even just playing with his friend (who has cat fur on his clothes) causes a reaction.
    And allergies can develop at any time. We had cats when he was a baby and he was fine. He suddenly developed an allergy when he was 5.

    Yes, they are real, of course. I can't believe you are actually unsure about that...it's not a matter of opinion, it's a fact that many people suffer from allergies, some potentially life threatening. Just because YOU "grew up" without these allergies doesn't mean they don't exist for anyone else. Do you honestly think that unless you personally experience something, it can't be real? Yikes. People with allergies and other health conditions can't just get over them, but I agree with the other poster....ignorance is something that can be helped, if you care enough to learn.

    yes, they are real. pharmacies have enough to deal with without allergies, plus several allergy meds are otc now and do not require pharmacies. i have dealt with skin allergies my whole life and my kids have many of the same problems. it is real and not just imagination.

    Is this poll a joke? Or are you actually this stupid?

    My son has kind of a weird allergy, he is allergic to egg whites, he doesn't have a normal reaction to it either, since he has eczema so when he eats them even when somethin is just processed in the same facility you will see the reaction on his face, his eyes will get red & puffy & his skin will get hivey.

    I was severely allergic to eggs my whole life until I stumbled into a spiritual mind body healer (who happened to be my friends mom) After having to drink a bottle of benadryl for taking a bite out of a cookie with eggs in it just the week before, I was now able to sit at her table and eat a whole egg because she worked with me and managed to convince my mind and body that I could let it go because it was unnessasary. I eat eggs to this day and strongly believe any problem you have is in your head...for whatever reason it don't matter. If you think it's real then it is. If you believe it might go away...then it just might. Sometimes all we need is the faith in our own minds and also someone else. My throat used to swell up and break out in hives that would bleed. I would throw up and had been to the hospital...over eating something with eggs in it. So yes it was real because everyone believed it was. hahahahaha. The human mind is great isn't it?
