The parts of the body that are prone to allergic symptoms include the eyes, nose, lungs, skin, and gastrointestinal tract.

Comment from: sneezy, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 18

I have never had any problem with allergies, but I spent 2 days continually sneezing. Both eyes tearing up as though crying. I"m 53. I feel bad for those who have suffered through this for more years than myself. As trivial as sneezing may sound, it was horrible.

Comment from: A Chronic Sufferer, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: April 11

I get skin allergy, i.e. itching, practically anywhere and most parts even all over body, any time, under any conditions, i.e. hot and dry; hot and moist; cold and dry; cold and wet; over bare or covered parts; while sleeping or awake; sweating or dry. Under similar circumstances I may be feeling good at one time and develop allergy another time. It can be very acute and disturbing, even painful. Cetirizine 10mg may be helpful some time. At another time even 60mg of same may not help. Even Allegra 120mg dose may be helpful once but no effect at another time. Have had various tests done in India, Germany, UK, etc., but without conclusions. Problem was there from the day I can remember as a child.
