Hi,

I read a post where a user has an allergy to Chilli, does any one know the correct term for this?

Thanks
Shelle

Well, unless I'm missing something I don't know of a name. Are you speaking of the chili pepper? I don't think allergies have specific names like phobias, for example. One can be allergic to Oak trees and they simply have an allergy to Oak trees...there's not a name for it that I know of.

I thought you all would find this interesting. My sis had a client who was extremely upset that her son was allergic to ... well, everything. He had so many allergies it was ridiculous. Her (his) pediatrician told her that the only place he'd seen a kid that allergic it was because of inter-breeding. She went home in tears. Called her mom. Her mother said, oh, aitch-ee-double hockey sticks. I didn't want you to know this, but your grandparents were first cousins, and that wasn't the first time the family intermarried. Ouch.

I don't think you can be alergic to a "dish". They may have allergies to some/any of the ingredients, but a "dish"?

I have respiratory allergies that are especially bad in the spring and fall. The other day, my dog Chloe, who has long hair, came in from her run all dusty from rolling in the dirt and leaves. When I petted her, the dust flew.

When I got up from my nap later, my upper lip on the left side was so swollen I looked like a freak! It would have frightened me, except that my dad went through a period in his life when he had the same problem, and the DR said it was allergies. I used my Albuterol wheezer and Naserol nose spray, and it went away in about an hour.

I know allegies aren't funny. My older brother almost died so many summers when we were kids from poison ivy in his throat and mouth.

But it just made me laugh about your lip when we see so many woman paying BIG $$ for that.

Sorry for your troubles, Constance

The OP is probably talking about the pepper, not the dish.
