In Reply to: Anyone allergic to grass..... posted by Little Sparrow on May 22, 2000 at 10:42:22:
: I have had a horrible time with allergies this year so I went to an allergist. After thorough testing we found that I am allergic to all types of grass, athlete's feet, cock roaches and a few others. I have started allergy shots on a weekly basis and would like to know if there is anyone else going thorough the same or has been through the same. Mainly the grass allergy. ( I don't have roaches, but I did work in grocery retail for a few years ).Any response would be greatly appreciated.
Paul Winter here, I often hike with a friend. Larry in the hills above San Jose, CA. This week we both broke out with insect-bite-like bumps. Having just had a bout of poison-oak, I know it isn't that because the bumps are to individual. Larry said that he has experienced these twice before and things it is an allergic reaction to grass. Although I walked through some grass, I didn't think I had any skin contact. Also, the bumps are on places that could not have had skin contact as I wore long pants and a long sleeve shirt. If we could identify they type of grass that did this to us, it would be helpful. Are all grasses equally allergic? Little Sparrow, please forward any information that you find to firstname.lastname@example.org, Thanks.
