Wheat as an allergen catalyst?

I don't seem to be allergic to wheat, but eating wheat makes me allergic to many other things, including uncooked fruits, nuts and vegetables (except citrus), general seasonal allergies, animals, etc. When I stop eating wheat, my allergies to ALL of these things go away. It's crazy. Why does this happen? [more inside]

Should I drop Zyrtec?

Allergy Filter: are all antihistamines basically the same? I used to take Zyrtec / cetirizine, but it's more expensive and less commonly available than other allergy medicines. Is there any reason (e.g. side effects) why I shouldn't just switch to which ever one is the cheapest? [more inside]

Eating out with milk allergy/intolerance

I want to know how have people with milk allergies and/or lactose intolerance changed their lifestyle in terms of eating out. It seems it should be simple- all you need to know if there is milk in it- but then again, not so much, esp if its not consistent (different brands etc). I am not interested in answers of the kind, "ask the waiter" but I am more interested in knowing how it affected this part of your life. Is it a drain to eat out with people at the new office when they ask you out? Do you turn a date down just because..? How did you accept that you may never be able to enjoy that ice-cream or cheesecake again?? (sigh)

How to keep the dust in for a better night's sleep

My new roommate has been sneezing since he got here, and I think it may be the dust/dust mites that's bothering him. I suspect the inherited mattress he's using may be harboring them, although it's otherwise perfectly fine. So: recommendations for a good mattress cover that will keep in the allergens, isn't weird and crinkly and won't destroy our tiny budget?

Allergy Treatment for Kids

I've heard about a woman outside of Boston who cures kids' allergies by starting with an infinitesimal amount of the allergen, and slowly exposing the body to greater amounts, until the allergy is overcome. A similar process was used in a study at Duke recently. Is there anyone else in the USA using this process (successfully) to treat/cure kids' allergies, that you know of?

My dog's really, really itchy, and my vet hasn't been much help.

My dog's really, really itchy, and my vet hasn't been much help. She's got bumps, sores, and the occasional scab on her underside. Allergy treatments haven't been much help (barring prednisone which isn't really a long-term solution) nor have special skin-treatment foods. And she doesn't have parasites, either. I'm kind of at a loss. [more inside]

casein & lactose levels in "caseine & lactose free" foods

Can someone tell me the minimum safe level of casein and lactose found in "casein free" &/ or "lactose free" foods that would not trigger an allergic reaction. (In ppm.) i.e. the lowest safe level allowed if you were trying to produce such a food product. (It will be for ghee, which has the milk solids removed, but residual trace amounts could potentially remain.) In striving to get it as low as possible, what would be an acceptable level to not trigger allergic response? [more inside]

How worried should I be about my symptoms?

Should I be worried about this? I went to the doctor this morning to get checked out for cold/flu symptoms; I didn't think it was serious -- I just wanted to check that I didn't have H1N1, but the doctor told me that the treatment I'd been getting for prostatitis was "highly unusual for someone in their 20s", and he said I should immediately stop taking the antibiotic I'm on (Septra/Bactrim) because I might be having an allergic reaction to it, or possibly an autoimmune reaction.
