Allergies and allergic reactions are the worst. One time I ate about seven hot links and half a package of fudge covered graham crackers, and I got the worst crawling rash. It sucked, but I probably deserved that one. If it gets to bad you might think about seeing an allergy specialist.

What exactly that you ate were you allergic to? Do you know?

I think it was the combination of the hot links and the fudge covered graham crackers that set off my allergic reaction.

Oh ok. I thought it was something in one of them.

Is that the same as hives?

They’re large spots of hives

I’m allergic to a lot of plants and weeds. It gets so bad I sometimes get huge weeping blisters.

Oh that’s awful! I think from now on I need to wear long sleeves and gloves. Do you do that?

I have very bad luck @jukebox. I’ve learned to roll with the punches because if it can go wrong, for me it will. My husband and friends always talk about my bad luck. It’s just crazy.

Wearing long sleeves and washing hands and arms with soap as soon as possible helps too

I may have a mild allergy to chocolate. For some weird reason every time I consume chocolate I start coughing whether a Snickers bar or a DQ shake.

Do you wear long sleeve shirts and full length pants when you are outside? Maybe that would help.

No. But I’m going to start doing that from now on. And I’m going to wear gloves too
