9 Weirdest Things People Are Allergic To 9. Allergic to Wood Wood allergies can definitely be troublesome.
While people are allergic to certain types of wood or sawdust, there are cases when people
are allergic to any type of wood in many types of forms, whether it is dust or solid. The
allergy can be so strong that it can cause the skin to look as if it was burned. In most
cases wood allergies cause skin irritation, coughing, sneezing, and hives. Dan Hill, a 32 year-old banker, quit his £80,000
a year job to live his dream of being a carpenter, only to discover he had developed an allergy
to wood. Luckily for him, he found a wood he was not allergic to 8. Allergic to Water Known as aquagenic urticaria, this condition
is said to only affect one out of every 23 million people in the world. Being allergic
to water is extremely rare, and most that are allergic to it are confined to their homes.
The person is hypersensitive to the ions found in non-distilled water, so most have to be
very careful when drinking water, or they drink distilled water. Teenager Ashleigh Morris can’t go swimming,
soak in a hot bath or enjoy a shower after a stressful day’s work, even sweating brings
the 19-year-old out in a painful rash. 7. Allergic to Underwear It’s that type of reaction in which skin develops
rashes, itching and even blisters. The underwear allergy is very troublesome to the extent
that it is painful while touching or rubbing that area. Anyone suffering from underwear
allergy can get rid of it very easily and quickly….take off your underwear. The main
reason responsible for causing this type of allergy in both men and women could be the
different types of fabrics used in making it such as polyester, cotton, latex etc. After several appearances without underwear,
star Britney Spears was said to suffer from this kind of allergy. 6. Allergic to the Sun It’s not that uncommon for people to be allergic
to the sun, but there is special type of sun allergy, called solar urticaria, that is very
rare. It is said that very few people in the world suffer from it. SU is a rare condition
in which exposure to ultraviolet or UV radiation, or sometimes even visible light, induces a
case of hives that can appear in both covered and uncovered areas of the skin. The most
common locations include the “V” of the neck, the back of the hands, the arms and the lower
legs. 5. Allergic to kisses It may sound humorous that kisses can also
trigger allergic reactions in humans. Real kisses can develop hives, rashes, itchy eyes,
blisters on eyelids, puffy lips, wheezing and respiratory distress. A small peck on
the cheek does not pose any serious dangers but passionate kisses can. Though this allergy
doesn’t mean one is allergic to another’s lips or…tongue, the person who suffers from
this allergy is usually one with a severe food or medicinal allergy. Because of the
close contact and sharing of saliva, food particles or particles from medicine can be
left in the mouth, causing an allergic reaction in some. 4. Allergic to Exercise Don’t go laughing if a friend tells you he
or she is allergic to exercise. He may be one of the 1,000 people who actually have
this allergy. Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) is a severe allergic reaction caused
by exercise, and may be related to eating certain foods before exercising. This life-threatening
allergic reaction is usually seen when the victim is allergic to certain foods or medications
and works out after partaking of the offending item. Attack symptoms are fatigue, warmth,
itching, redness of the skin, then large hives, collapse and unconsciousness. They may have
swelling of the throat, difficulty breathing, choking, nausea and vomiting. 3 Allergic to electromagnetic fields 27. For most people talking on a mobile phone,
cooking dinner in the microwave or driving in a car is simply part of modern living in
21st century. But completing any such tasks is impossible for people like Debbie Bird,
who is so sensitive to the electromagnetic field (emf) created by computers and even
some cars, that she develops a painful skin rash and her eyelids swell to three times
their size if she goes near them. 2. Allergic to Children Pemphigoid gestationis is a skin condition
in which blisters appear on the abdomen and, in the worst cases, over large regions of
the body. Women can develop the condition during the second or third trimester and after
giving birth. In the rarest of cases, children can be born with the rash. Joanne Mackie, 28, developed agonizing blisters
and an excruciating rash shortly after giving birth to son James. The painful welts across
her back, legs, arms and chest caused her so much pain that she could not hold the newborn,
and was forced to cover her arms in muslin cloth. 1. Allergic to apples and birch trees Many food allergies occur when the specific
food is consumed, but Grace Morley has a rare and bizarre food allergy. She is not allergic
to either apple’s or birch trees on their own, but if she eats an apple close to where
a birch tree is growing she will go into shock and could die within minutes. When these two
are combined Grace responds by going into severe shock. Don’t forget to like us and subscribe

  1. I am allergic to apples, I go into anaphylactic shock from a drop of Apple juice touching my skin, from someone eating an apple in the same room as me, and from cooking apples in another apartment on a different floor with All doors closed. The worse part is that apples are in So many food items, even in things that you wouldn't think would have apples in it have apples in it as a cheap filler. I have to read All the ingredients Before buying food items. Plus in recent years apple allergies have been popping up left and right. And if you have seasonal allergies and come in contact with your allergin(s) such as apples your allergic reaction can become deadly before you can be stabbed with an Epi-PEN. I carry an Epi-PEN on me at all times and my hubby carries one as well, he even brings my Epi-PEN to work at a restaurant in a food court, Just in case someone ends up needing it. I believe All restaurants should carry at least One Epi-PEN, because an allergic reaction to something that you could eat before without having an allergic reaction can pop up out of Nowhere, that is what happened to me with both apples and peanuts 😪, two things that I LOVED.
