I have a reaction to high pollen/mold. When the weather forecast pollen/mold my allergies go crazy and my skin itches. I usually take allergy medicine which will calm it some but my skin does not like it.

hello agb, yes thats it,the flushes from hayfever can make your skin itch like hell, think that applys to p sufferers though than none p sufferers?, not nice,i started up with hayfever to day, luckily didnt last long, i went indoors for a while for it to settle,i am not alone :)

I have hay fever....but since about 5 years....so or I had it but it was never diagnosed ( affected only my nose at first ) or I developed it over time....

Hi john, being a nurse I'm led to believe the 2 are not connected...how ever I suffer with hay fever and so does my son...I think that having an over active immune system would make us more vulnerable to allergies causing flare ups...I know when I take antihistamines it settles my p :-)


Jennifer

Hmm... Well my p started 9yrs ago, and I've had allergies for the last 2 yrs only... Not sure lol guess anything can start at any point but my mom always had allergies pretty bad...

Hope everything calms down soon. Haven't heard of any connection between the 2.

Allergies are mostly build up over time....not always....but for a lot of things it works like that ( if I'm correct 😉 )

You just don't like hay.

Hay is not amused by that!

I get frequent bouts of hay fever, john. It seems as though some folk suffer from more than one type of allergy. Psoriasis is probably the manifestation of an allergy.

hello dave thanks, i was curious as we have auto immune system problem which can cause other problems in our bodies, heart, lungs, glands, etc,i thought may have an effect on the body when it comes to allergys as the immune system is probably not as strong as say the average person,why we need to build it up to get it to a good standard from what ever means,mines through diet and suppliments aswell as 2 litres of bottled water or more a day and hope i can build a resistants though i am never ill but can feel like rubbishas i have in the past for years through bad habits,thanks dave :)


Afina
Afina @afina

For my arthritis I inject myself with medication that lowers my immuunsysteem....but I had hay fever before that. Now there's little that passes me by....because my immuunsysteem is very low....but if I don't take the injections I am in a lot more pain....so I'll catch anything that goes around....don't miss out on anything 😉 #greedyme
