I keep having redness around my eyes and on my cheeks near my nose. I can't think what has caused the allergy.

I work in an industrial field and only seem to have allergy symptoms while at work. Within the first 30 minutes of entering the office, I begin to get a tickle in my throat, itchy eyes, congested nasals and immediate coughing. I do not seek medical help because as soon as I leave I am fine.

I am allergic to dust. I get frequent sneezes, running nose, irritation in nose, itching in upper palate of buccal cavity and itching in ears too. There is frequent sneezing in the morning and the condition worsens mostly in winter.

I have allergic rhinitis as diagnosed by the doctor. Medicines prescribed are, for one month, tablet Myteka 10mg one every day, tablet Zatofen one per day and Ticovate nasal spray. My forehead remained heavy, nostrils remained blocked. Other effects, my hair became gray/white and I get a smell in mouth, and I don't like breakfast at morning. This problem is with me for more than six years.

My eyes itch and then swell overnight causing me to spend over an hour each morning with tea bags and ice on my eyes to leave the house. When the swelling shrinks I am left with bags and deep wrinkles. This happened last March but went away quickly. This year it started in February and is still going on. I had allergy testing which said I was allergic to mold and dust mites only. I have forced hot air heat with vents but have been in the house for 15 years without this occurrence.

I have an eczema, and it"s really itchy especially around summer or mostly on hot days. My allergy is found on my hands. When I was in high school, I didn"t know that time that it was eczema, my left hand got too serious that I had to go to my doctor to have an injection. My hands was like coated with a flour then fried on the pan. I was injected 2 times with multiple shots. After that I took some prescribed medicine and cream to heal them.

With allergies I get hive like hard, red rash; sometimes it stings. It is the size of a 25 cent, kind of blotchy-ish, on my chest, arm area, a single one on my rib, a few on my back and also the neck area as well. My upper arm had a cluster of 3 that was bright red.
