my allergies are worse when its wet
I had a severe allergy attack the other day. got allergy tested I have allergies to weeds. I also had a reaction to candida when I had an allergy test. But it is winter and nothing is in bloom. This doesn't make sense.

Re: my allergies are worse when its wet
I go absolutely NUTS when it is wet, so please don't feel alone. It could be due to the mold or the barometric change. I can't think straight when it rains and have found going to the acupuncturist the best solution. Believe me, you are not alone with this and I know how VERY frustrating it can be.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Purple"]I too noticed that I was much, much worse when it rained and I now know through allergy testing that the culprit is the rain molds, leptosphaeria and phaeosphaeria, My reactions where the worst of any molds I tested for so far and produced the most debilitating symptoms for me. I am so allergic to them, the reactions are so severe for me, they recommended that I no longer live in the East where rain is common. And going to tropical places is completely out of the question.
If you have a lot of symptoms when it rains, I'd suspect mold above anything else.
