Red wine is a prime culprit, since the skins of grapes contain a protein allergen called LTP that can lead to a stuffy nose and other allergy-like symptoms.

  • My mom has the first one and my aunt is allergic to water the only thing that keeps it at bay is a medication meant for Parkinson’s

  • I’m allergic to sweets whatever I eat sweets even ripe mango it cause me a lot of problem my throat swollen,got high fever,flu and headache and sometimes got a breathing problem and palpitate,����

  • I didn’t think that Cold Urticaria would be on this list, because I have Cold Urticaria. I love the snow, but I can’t really go out in it though. RIP.

  • What I’ve learned in 2010 or was it 2011 is you can be allergic to ugly people I had a really bad allergy that I can’t be anywhere near ugly people that I almost dropped out of School I didn’t know what to do.
    My Councilor told me that it was best to have seating arrangements and it worked.

  • Prehaps transgender people have the sixth or seventh allergy, that’s why hormone therapy helps those people, or is it a coincidence?

  • What’s really fun about Mast Cell Disorders is when a cat’s touch at the wrong time in one’s menstrual cycle triggers a reaction; that then itches so intensely that it cannot be ignored; but then touching it results in dermatographism. These chemical triggers cause the heart to race, which then causes anaphylaxis.
    Not that I’d knowwwwwww.

  • Know someone who’s allergic to cold and it’s not just actual cold, but even warm temps if it’s suddenly a few degrees cooler than what she’s been in can trigger it. So, say it’s 78 degrees outside and she goes inside to 70 degree temp, it would set it off.

  • the thing about the semen allergy, apparently it can be to specific people too. i remember years ago there was a show that talked about weird sex issues. they had a girl, who was fine with her previous partners, but her current one she was allergic to.

  • Lmao I have uticaria. I break out in hives when I itch hives or have clothes that are a little tight on. I also have cold uticaria. I went snowboarding once and got a really bad concussion because I passed out bc I was too cold. I love my weird life ����

  • This explains what I call my “itchy meat”! I’m prone to hives and if I walk (especially during the summer) my thighs turn red and itchy/burn-y.

  • I’m allergic to the cold and have had a reaction to the ac. Let me tell you people look at you, especially when you live In Montana and winters can get to -50 degrees F

  • I don’t know if it’s possible that I have a mild version of being allergic to the cold, but during the winter months I’ve had my hands swell and burn whenever I go out into the cold (… and I live in Canada). I dont wanna self diagnose but it’s usually within 20 minutes of exposure. Often people have told me it looks like my hands are extremely chapped, but I’ve had chapped hands and it’s not the same. My hands will just suddenly start to burn, even after if I’ve already come indoors. People for years have been giving me creams for it (no creams work lol), and it only recently improved in December when I went to see an allergist for a different allergy issue & he had me take allergy medication twice a day all the time. I never did go back to the allergist because he’s booked solid, but now I kinda know that taking that allergy medication actually helps my hands. When I stopped taking it my hands would swell and burn again when I went outside. IDK, could totally be placebo, and idk if you can have a mild version of a cold allergy but that’s my theory anyway???

  • I get weird rashes that feel like my skin is on fire that cover my whole body for no reason and doctors have no clue why it is happening. I’ll just be sitting and feel a tingling feeling and then to burning. Its like my body hates me or smth all of the sudden.

  • As someone who has aquagentic urticaria, it really sucks. I get itchy hives that last for about an hour whenever I get wet. While washing my hands gets a minor amount of irritation and redness, something like a shower or getting caught in the rain can cause my whole body to break out. Like, when I take a shower, my chest, torso, let’s arms and face look like I got a sunburn. It’s quite painful, and I’m currently trying to get treatment for my condition. Even my sweat and tears make me get all red and itchy.

  • I’m allergic to mint, menthol, and eucalyptus, so checkout isles really suck because there is mint frickin everywhere. Toothpaste is a nightmare.

  • I had a teacher once in middle school who was allergic to sugar. Kinda felt bad for the guy considering sugar is in almost everything.

  • When I was younger I was extremely allergic to outdoor mold. I couldn’t even go outside or I would have an asthma attack and end up in the hospital. I was literally allergic to outside

  • Mast Cell Activation Syndrome is INCREDIBLY COMMON only severe cases are rare. MCAS is the most common cause of all forms of mental illness. Histamine is the most overlooked neurotransmitter. Violence, self harm, suicidal ideation, anorexia, OCD, all caused by histamine.
    Sensitive skin? Environmental allergies? Asthma? IBS? All forms of MCAS

  • Coconut skin allergy:
    Hey this coconut water/milk/soup/lotion/soap on the person you tried to have sex with’s skin: is like battery acid without melting. I’ve compared it with battery flakes, it’s the exact same feeling. And it stays on for a few hours.
    Shampoo/conditioner: intense skin tingles
    Coconut oil/bits hidden within most food as long as if it’s not flakes or sugar: No effect to mild stomach ache
    Coconut ingredients but in chocolate and white chocolate: spicy >:D
    Palm oil/hearts: We are tasty friends:)

  • Thank god I am not allergic to water. I am diagnosed with primary hyperhidrosis in my palms, armpits, feet and part of my face (it’s basically excessive and uncontrollable sweating not caused by any other medical conditions, temperatures, foods, clothes, etc).
    I would itch and have a hard time breathing every minute!
    Even now when I eat medicine to prevent too much sweating it sometimes won’t even work.

  • I have dermographism and I am not allergic to touch, I am allergic to friction. If you poke me it does not normally itch it the friction on my skin that causes the hives. That is how writing, a t-shirt and even undergarments can cause hives.

  • Shame you talked about Mast Cell Activation Syndrome on the skin, but not systemic (on the inside) and further Mastocytosis… these allergic reactions, up to and including Anaphylaxis, on the inside are more difficult and dangerous to deal with as it’s hard to tell what you are having the reaction to and it can be to your own body. Mastocytosis is rarer than MCAS.

  • My son was allergic to heat, it started when he was around 5 years old. Any time his body temp raised above 98.6 he got hives all over. It took his allergist and I MONTHS to figure out. I finally was the one who started to put it together. He was playing the Wii Inside with the AC in the house on and he started to sweat from moving around (he was playing the fruit slice game) and he got the hives. So I thought he was allergic to his sweat. So we go back in to the dr (This was like after 3 or 4 months of trying to figure out what was going on.) I told his Dr what happened and he says wait a min I think I know what it is. He comes back in with a coffee cup that had hot water in it (of course not hot enough to burn him) and put it on his arm and held it there for a bit and with in a min his arm was having a reaction. This was EXTREMELY problematic as we live in Arizona! He had to wear cooling equipment every time we went outside. A vest with ice packs and a cooling cap that was frozen and we would quickly have to get him from point a to point be before he would break out in hives. We had to put special creams on him, steroid creams all over his body (except his face). It was awful! It lasted 2 years and then as quickly as it showed up, it was gone and stopped happening. His Dr says it can happen again at any time. It was probably an illness that triggered it and they have no clue why it went away. They say it could come back and never go away or could come and go. They really don’t know. He’s not allowed hot showers or to get in a hot tub. Those things could cause anaphylaxis and kill him. He’s 16 now and hasn’t had it pop up again. We just pray it never does. It was a scary and rough two years. It broke my heart to tell him he couldn’t play soccer with his friends or ride a bike or anything outside! He couldn’t even get in our pool in summer because when it’s 110 to 115• F the pool water is around 98• F and it’s essentially a huge hot tub. To even let him play active games inside we had to turn the AC way down!! Which is really expensive. But of course we did it to allow him to have fun and be a kid.

  • im no scientist but i feel like the water allergy is really something else. how can the body react weird to something on the outside but not on the inside? such a small sample size as 32 ESTIMATED (as in they actually “found” even less) on the entire planet makes me doubt the whole thing. edit after reading the source material it would appear that the scientists agree since they list the most likely culprit being something dissolved in the water

  • i wish y’all had talked about the rare allergy to UV light. my neighbors’ kid has it, he can’t go outside during the day without this space suit helmet thing and long sleeves and pants. he also is allergic to a compound that’s in cigarettes, if he inhales even a small amount of it he’ll develop pneumonia.

  • Hi someone with chronic dermatographic urticaria (number one) here and it’s as bad at it sounds. I have it so severe that sometime just a gust of wind or even nothing at all can cause my skin to burst out into hives so painful and intense I have to jump into cold water. Luckily! I’m on an extremely high dosage of Zyrtec and since being on it I’ve been able to get control over my flare ups! I also keep my skin very moisturized and that helps a ton to cut down on flare ups!

  • I have polymorphic light eruption. Essentially an allergy to sunlight. It’s honestly horrible. I’m called a vampire cus of it. Since being out in the sun will give me a bad rash even small blisters. And at its worst I’ll be in pain for up to a week. And we’re not sure if it’s related or not. But my retinas are dying. Slowly thinning. I had surgery last summer to repair a hole in my left retina.

  • No, I refuse to believe there is an allergy to water. People are mostly water. If it was a real thing, these people would be dead immediately upon living. Something else is causing this.

    You know, I’ve always felt terrible after exercise. It never gets any better no matter how often I do it. I guess that’s not the same thing, though, eh?

  • Unless your bathroom toilet is plumbed into your home’s hot water system, your shower wouldn’t get colder with a toilet flush; it would get warmer, if anything. For most toilets, flushing has no effect on the shower temperature, however. But, it does happen with certain types of toilets.

  • Parmesan cheese in large enough doses will make me puke and develop hives. Along my back and up my neck.

    I can barely be in the same room as it without feeling naseaus just due to the smell of it.

    Nor does the quality of the cheese matter or how long its cooked/what its paired with. Sprinkling it over pasta versus baking it into something doesnt change anything. I can smell whether or not it is in something pretty easily. Though other cheeses dont hold the same reaction.

    Its not lactose intolerence because im an avid dairy consumer. Its just parmesan cheese. The allergist said it was probably due to something about how its processed/some sort of protien in that cheese specifically and tols me not to go around trying random cheeses just incase it is a normal response in the more uncommon cheeses.

    Oh and egg, expecially the yolk, makes me puke aswell unless it is mixed into and cooked through something else. Ie. French toast is fine though i cant have too much of it. But an omelet or scrambled eggs are no goes.

  • When I was a child, I used to get an allergic reaction from sunlight.
    I can’t remember exactly when I grew out of it but it hasn’t happened in a looooong while. Fingers crossed I didn’t just jinx it.

  • I’m allergic to a few things besides 24/7 seasonal. But also fish/shellfish, a lot of sunblocks making me have to use some expensive special sunblock. The plastic we work with at work and then I also break out in itchy burning red hives from my sweat.

  • I’m not allergic to exercise in general but I’m allergic to running specifically, i get hives, light headed, weaze, usually get a migraine, and it gives me an extreme runny nose and sneeze attacks for like 2 days after i run (if i do, which i only do when i Have to)

  • I wonder if on a very minor level i am allergic to water. When i am wet for more than a few min i get leopard spots/freckles on my face, shoulders, and upper arms. Sometimes a little itchy but easily ignore able. the “spots” are purple if i was in cold water and red if i was in hot/warm water. I always thought it was a weird quirk of me but my sister would always think i was mad when i came out of the shower because my face was red. the spots disappear once i am dry for about 15 min.

  • I have a mild case of vibration allergy. I discovered it when my mom massaged my back with a vibrating back massager. I started itching almost immediately and hives broke out all over.

  • I have weird allergies, I’m allergic to skittles. I’m Irish and I cant taste the rainbow. Also allergic to sulfates, Dasini has sulfates….I’m allergic to water

  • I’m so frickin’ glad I don’t have any allergies…after watching this video and checking the comments section I feel bad for anybody with one of these allergies��.

  • I have an anaphylactic allergy to peanuts, not so weird, and eucalyptus. You would not believe the weird and wonderful places people use eucalyptus! During cold season I self isolate so I don’t accidentally get a whiff of someone’s Halls on the way by them in the mall. And, of course, I always have two EpiPens on me. My doc is like, ‘shoot first, call the ambulance second’!

  • I’m allergic to marijuana & alcohol. Ingesting it creates the same exact symptoms as a cold and seasonal allergies. Took me nearly 20 years to accept this unavoidable truth.. it’s a Bittersweet BLESSING! Cause I can honestly say I no longer use it. Thank God.

  • Most people in my family have sensitive skin, but it expresses itself in different ways for all of us and we often have reactions to different things. For example, I have dermatographia, my brother has psoriasis and my sister is allergic to the sun, among other things. We can have reactions to abrasive materials, washing detergent, certain soaps, make-up, grass, pressure, markers, paint, plasters… One time my sister had a reaction to sunshine and then a reaction to the aftersun she applied to her skin. My reactions are pretty mild, hers are more severe. It certainly keeps life interesting!
