    Allergic to Everything: A Fun Medical Puzzle for Masochistic Doctors

    Are you a doctor? Do you know much about liver injury or allergies? Want to shake up the day a little? I have a fun puzzle for you. :) Come down this rabbit-hole with me! Back in 2010 I started working in SE Asia, particularly Laos. Within 2 years (by 2012) I started getting mouth sores more often when eating citrus foods. So, I avoided them. By 2013, I was starting to have strange digestive issues. By 2014 I started down a medical rabbit-hole nightmare as I sought a diagnosis. No diagnosis came....

Let's go back to when I was about 11 yrs old, I had inner ear wax and had tubes put in to drain the wax out. Recently, I went to Brasil, and on the way back to US, I had some salty food on the airplane.

    Butter intolerance

    Okay so I’m trying to get to the bottom of this and it is beyond annoying. On March 26,2007 I was diagnosed with osteomyelitis (staff infection) in my right ankle.

    I am allergic to fish oil pills, but have no seafood allergies...?

    When I was around 8 years old, I began taking fish oil pills. I started itching heavily all over my body and subsequently quit taking the pills, soon after which the itching stopped. Years later at 20 years old, I decided to try them again. This time, I developed hives all over my body, trouble breathing, and constricted airways. Needless to say, my reaction has become anaphylactic. My question is if anyone else has experienced this issue? I have done what seems like endless research only to find....

    Strange rash on foot

    I have a small hive like rash that just showed up on my foot. It's raised and itches. One is circular and one is kind of snake like. I recently got a full allergy skin prick test, and had a couple of allergies, but nothing crazy. I have been taking xyzal daily since the test. Does anyone know what this might be? Could it be a non - allergy related problem?

    A question on Epipens, VitC, Glutathione, and the recent Sesame allergy death in the news

    Hi there everyone From a Facebook post: “1) Kid has a severe food allergy 2) Food at airport wasn't labeled properly 3) Passes out on airplane despite two Epi Pen injections 4) Dies before they get 22 miles across the English channel. Vit C would have saved her. See Marik et. al 2017. Irony is if she got to France they'd give her a NAC (precursor to glutathione) injection and save her life. #epiPensSaveLives?” This is regarding the BBC news story “Girl with allergy dies after Pret baguette....
