Every few weeks my daughter develops an allergy to something. It starts as violent sneezing which bruises her ribs, itchy skin on her face, headache, runny nose, everything aches and blocked sinuses.

She has to go to bed as she feels so dreadful but within the next day or two it's gone. She says it's just like having flu without the temperature.

She went for allergy testing and reacted to thunderstorm dust but she didn't react to the ingredient which checks whether the test is working so we are not sure if the diagnosis is accurate especially when she can get an attack and there are no storms about.

She has just moved to Perth and has had two attacks in one week and is taking longer to recover so there is some urgency as it completely knocks her out.
