    Do you have a serious or potential life threatening health risk from a specific allergy?
    Fortunately for me I don't. But it seems that lately more and more people are coming out and claiming to be allergic to something.

    Here are a few examples.

    1. Pollens. Pollens are the number one allergy triggers in the United States. Pollens are produced by vegetation – trees, grass and flowering plants – and are spread by air. When inhaled, they cause a reaction on people who are allergic to them. Most plant life release pollen into the air from spring to autumn, but there are also some plants that produce pollen in winter.
    2. Animal hair. As lovable as dogs and cats are, the oil they secrete to coat their hair contains protein that can cause allergic reactions. The sad thing about it is that allergy to animal dander can develop over time and can end the relationship between a pet and its master.
    3. Dust mites. Dust mites live in the dust that collect in homes and workplaces. They cannot be seen by the naked eye, and they feed on bacteria, fungi and dead skin cells in dust balls. The proteins that their waste products contain can cause allergic reactions.
    4. Insect bites. An insect stings or bites as part of its defensive mechanism. However, when an insect bites, it leaves proteins in the skin that are also allergy triggers for some people. The allergy can manifest as mild swelling and itchiness, but it can also be life-threatening for some people.
    5. Mold. Mold develops on damp and dark areas. When mold spores are touched or inhaled, they irritate the air tract and cause allergic reactions. Molds act almost the same way as pollens do, except that they persist even in sub-freezing temperatures.
    6. Food. Some people are predisposed to developing allergies to food such as shellfish, peanuts, wheat and milk. Such people produce antibodies against the substances found in the food they are allergic to. When they eat this food, their antibodies release histamine and trigger allergic reactions. You can use food intolerance testing kits to identify possible food intolerance of your body for 96 different food types.
    7. Latex. Latex is made from the sap of the rubber tree, and this sap contains proteins that can be an allergy trigger for some people. When these people come in contact with latex, they immediately show an allergic reaction. This can be problematic, given that many items used in the health care business are made of latex.
    8. Medicine. Some people have immune systems that are not friendly with substances found in some drugs, like penicillin and salicylates. When these people ingest medicine containing these allergens, they can break out.
    9. Perfume. There are people who cannot stand the smell of perfume, no matter how good the perfume smells. The chemicals in the perfume irritate the lining of their nose and trigger the allergy.
    10. Cockroaches. Cockroaches are creepy; nobody likes them. But more than that, the proteins that their feces contain can irritate the skin and cause an allergic reaction.

    Metronidazole

    Had to give it to my pup for a few days, of course have to handle the pill to give it to her and for all the time giving it to her I was sick, once she was done with it I was fine.

    Bacatracin. Put it on my arm, started itching by the time I made it to the hospital I couldn't breathe. Epipenepherine in an I. V. saved me.

    Damn simply from holding the pill you became sick? Must be strong stuff.


    Whoa! Wiki: Metronidazole is listed by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) as reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.

    Yeah, I'm thinking it's from maybe holding it and putting it in a food to get her to take it and the food made the pill moist and absorbed in to the skin.
