    Angry Allergic to wood

    Hi, I have a rare allergy to wood. Sawdust, or dry, unfinished wood of any kind sends me into an allergic reaction. If I don't touch the wood, I usually have a cough, itchy face, and a thick throat (almost asthmatic reaction). If I happen to touch the wood, I get those symptoms along with an itchy, stinging rash where I touched the wood or sawdust. Does anyone else have an allergy like this?

    Not the touching reaction but the others. Take a zyrtec. Any time i know I'm going to a construction site, cabinet shop, etc, I make sure to take one.
