I've always had sensitive skin, but now i'm 20 yrs old and i'm noticing some more reactions.
My mother has always told me that its a latex allergy, my father says its sensitive skin and my doctor just tells me to avoid things that give me reactions, but since then i've found two more. Rather than play the 'blindly see if things give me a reaction' game, I'm wondering if anyone knows exactly what it is, so i can determine things to avoid in the future.
Allergy to Banana - itchy mouth, tender tongue, chest tightness and coughing
Allergy to Avocado - Very Bad Abdominal Pains and sweating
Intolerance to Milk
Reaction to most Perfumes/skin creams/band-aids and tapes/some makeup/anything that isn't marked hypoallergenic or dermatologically tested, which results in flaking dry skin, rashes on my neck and face, and rashes and what look like nasty bite marks on my arms and legs.
I'm very sensitive about my reactions, so I end up wearing more clothing to hide them, and living in Melbourne, Australia means that that can be quite difficult at the best of times!
