Joined the wonderful world of allergies in my early twenties with allergy to sunbathing; I'd had prickly heat before, but this skin rash was much worse, the only relief was lying in a bath of cold water.
This was followed by an allergy to skin products which turned me into the incredible hulk but red instead of green...including, ironically, sun allergy specific suntan lotions.
Later came a mild hayfever and the incredible hulk came back when I slept at my sister's house in my niece's and her (very furry) cat's bed!
I'm now getting all the classic allergy signs( itchy skin ,swollen eyelids,pink eyes, sore throat, cough and snivels) from sleeping in my own bed.It came on after three weeks holiday abroad.
I use feather/down pillows and duvets, and first noticed swollen eyelids after buying new pillows but buying new pillow protectors seemed to solve this problem and I take this pillow on holiday with me!
Can anyone advise me on what worked for them in reducing this problem?
I always thought that getting rid of feather products was required, but I read on this site that they might be better than synthetic pillows, so now I'm confused!
