    I voted for a “combination of factors” and wasn’t surprised to see that I was in the majority!

    I suffer from allergies, my siblings too.

    Allergies are mysterious. People here say that now children are not exposed to dust and environment in their young years like they used to before, though, I don’t agree, as me and my siblings played a lot in dust.

    I would be interested to learn more about allergies via your blog as they intrigue me and I hope I can help people around me and myself with this knowledge.

    Love and light ❤

        Particularly to nothing. Suddenly an itch starts inside my body specially in mucus membrane every where and sneezing starts. Water from eyes and nose stars. I have been given so many medicine for chest infection, may be that is the reason.
