    I am allergic to penicillin and have mild hay fever(pollen). If I regularly drink nettle tea I do not have any hay fever.

    I think allergies are worse (in part) because of overexposure (wheat, latex, soy) and over cleaning/sanitizing.It seems like we are getting worse at cleaning while using more products.

    Would you marry and reproduce with someone who had an allergy?
    Yes I did. Personal integrity and intelligence were highest on my list.
    My husband's overall health is excellent but he is allergic to cat & dog dander, dust, mold, pollen, bluegrass.

    An interesting question. I want my children to be as healthy as possible. For them I will even try to find a woman who compensates my own genetically flaws ( I have a VERY sensitive skin and brown eyes - I don't really consider them as flaws but I'd still like my children being blue-eyed; that just looks better). But you can't see if a person got any allergies by looking at them. And I would feel terrible saying "No, I don't want children from you, you're allergic to pollen" to a girl I have had a long relationship with.
    Not all allergies are hereditary and some can be outgrown. Kids often get urticaria after eating something which they can later, as exemplified by several members in this thread. An allergy to milk or eggs can be outgrown, but asthma is more serious.

    Will my child have allergies for life?


    Your baby will probably outgrow his allergy, depending on what he is sensitive to. If he reacts to milk or egg, he is likely to be over the allergy by the time he is three. However, there is a chance he'll go on to have asthma or hayfever. Allergies to nuts and fish tend to persist, and only 10 per cent to 20 per cent of children who have these allergies will outgrow them.

    I'm pretty resilient... I have no allergies whatsoever, I'm never sick, and I'm completely unaffected by poison ivy.

    Yes, I am allergic to festuca pratensis (a type of grass), phelum pratense (timotei), alternaria alternata (fungus), and penicillium notatum (another fungus).

    I suffer from being allergic to various airborne particulates and tobacco smoke, which trigger the asthma attacks I use daily meds to help control.
