Hi.
I am waiting for a call from my doctor and will raise the issue regarding sn epipen then.  
 
I did see an old post from Teddy regarding shampoo. It may not actually be anything specifically latex related I am allergic to for that. I am only now being able to track down the things that cause me problems. As a lot of the allergies are triggered by inhalation, it makes it that much more diffivult.

Never come across this before Jackie.   None of our Type 1 members have reported problems with shampoo.   You can get baby shampoos that are supposed to be allergy free.
 
I really think you should approach your doctor as an emergency and get him / her to prescribe an epipen.

Hi. I have reluctantly just come to the unfortunate realisation that I think I have type 1 latex allergy. I think I am also allergic to eggs.  I am trying to work out the things in my house I need to clear to minimise my reactions and am wondering about shampoo. I have a history of unexplained rashes on my neck and eyelids and think my other symptons are worse when I lie back on my hair.
Can this in anyway be connected to latex allergy. I am guessing that there is no latex in shampoo, but I think there is something in there thst doesn't like me and I am not sure what.  
Any ideas or help you csn give on this?
Thanks for reading.

Hi, and thanks fir the reply. I have not spoken to the doctor since I have been able to trace this to something more specific.  I have an appointment booked for mid July and have been told that there are no earlier appointments.

Hi Jackie and welcome to the forum.   You are showing a lot of the early signs of Type 1 Latex Allergy.   All the Type 1 sufferers I have come across are allergic to bananas and tomatoes.   Have you told your doctor about this as I think, as a matter of your safety, you should be carrying an epipen.

I have have had a number of health issues over the last year and now believe this could be linked to a latex allergy (plus possible reaction to too much folic acid). I have noticed I seem to get reactions to eating (and possibly just being near) bananas, tomatoes and nectarines. I have also had reactions in supermarkets near their sportswear/underwear or tills with conveyor belts. I also believe I have reacted badly to a couple of pairs of sandals I have worn before making the connection.
I have had severe breathing problems on a number of occasions (which is sometimes helped by drinking loads of water), post nasal drip, acid reflux, sudden extreme tiredness, weakness in limbs, swollen red face and a furry tongue and stinging mouth when eating.  
I am looking for help to try and track down the cause of my symptons and to find out the things I need to avoid. I thought this forum may be able to help me and will be looking through all the posts with interest.

I've tried Scholl again and their reply is nearly as bad as the first.  
 
Anyone know of anywhere else to try?
