Can you imagine yourself to be allergic to the most desired thing of
your life? Believe it or not it does happen to many people. You have
seen people around you who are sneezing, coughing or rubbing their skin
because of itching, but have you ever asked the reason of their allergy?
If you ask only then you will know the strange facts about allergies.
Allergy is basically an exaggerated immune response to something that
is most commonly not harmful and that is why there are a lot of strange
and odd reasons of reactions. In this article I am introducing you to
ten allergies that happen due to some odd reasons, they are as follows.
10. Allergic to Vibrations
People with sensitive skin are the most commonly become the victim of
this allergy in which an episode of urticaria induce in the body parts
by the vibrations of machinery like cars and lawnmowers. Just like other
allergies, it is caused by the wrong perception of immune system to
harmless object and immune system responds in defense to the object as
it may cause any damage to the body. Welt, rashes, hives and other skin
reactions immediately appear almost within five minutes and remain for
hours or days as urticaria comes from histamine. The allergy can be
treated by antihistamine or by calamine lotion.
9. Allergic to Sunlight
It is found that there are a number of allergies that happens due to
sun but the allergy I am talking about is a special type of allergy
which is known as solar urticaria. This allergy is uncommon unlike other
forms of it that are caused by sun and only a few people are reported
by far that suffered from solar urticaria. The ultraviolet rays from
sun induces hives or urticaria on the skin of the effected, and in some
cases even the visible light was found to be the reason of allergy in
both covered and uncovered areas of body.
8. Allergic to Deodorants
It is really very irritating to sit beside a person who is stinking
and sweating but many people are bound to stink as they are allergic to
deodorants. It seems weird but it is true that people actually suffer
from this kind of sensitivity which actually happens due to one or more
ingredients that a deodorant contains. In this allergy, the suffering
person experience pain, redness, burning, cracking of the skin, rash,
painful pustules, and it’s horrible to know that in severe cases it can
root puss-oozing cuts. It can be prevented by using the deodorants which
do not contain that particular element which causes the reaction.
7. Allergic to Underwear
This is a really troublesome allergy because it originates from
wearing the underwear but the allergy is even worse as the people bear
pain, itching and blisters in the particular area. More often these
people cannot even touch the affected area which makes it a night mare
for them to put on an underwear. The allergy is common in both men and
women and the good thing is that they can get rid of it by simply
avoiding the specific fabric which is responsible for it, in most cases
polyester, cotton, latex etc. The situation could turn severe; in that
case the patient should consult a dermatologist.
6. Allergic to Kissing
It may sound humorous that a person is allergic to kissing and you must
have already exclaimed “poor guy” in your head by now but it actually
happens to some unlucky individuals. When the person experiences it, he
suffers from hives, rashes, prickly eyes, blisters on eyelids, puffy
lips, and respiration problems. It cannot cause a severe danger but
passionate kisses can do that. Someone’s lips tongue or skin is not
responsible for the reaction but it actually happens due to a particular
food and medicinal reaction.
