Be aware that there are two scams going the rounds.   You get an email purporting to be from Tesco or Morrisons offering a free gift (usually a watch) for a review.
 
These are not from Tesco or Morrisons they are scams.

Paula now thinks the problem might have been caused by the glue used to seal the cover onto the tray.

Paula just had some of this for lunch and has had a bad reaction.   It contains Potato, Salmon, Broccoli, Green Beans, Skimmed milk,Single cream, Onion, Watercress, Cornflour, Garlic, Fish Stock, Dijon Mustard, Pectin, Parsley, Salt and black pepper.   The fish stock contains Palm Oil and this is what we suspect caused the problem as she has never had a problem with any of the other ingredients.

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.
