    Melaleuca = tea tree oil for those who aren't familiar with the term. (I mean technically it doesn't because Melaleuca is a whole species of plants but most commonly what is meant by Melaleuca oil is tea tree oil)

    Yeah...mine is like that too. I peroxide my ears perodically to make sure I get the flakes out. If you want to see some "ear cleaning action" search it on YouTube.

    I've been experimenting with peroxide as a mouthwash - so far so good

    I just realized my favorite candy causes breathing issues. All I ate was 4 little M&M peanuts and I'm winded. I don't know what to eat.... and scared to eat.

    Found more food allergens. Traces of soy in the salad dressing and in marble cake. I caught the first, but unlucky with second. My blood pressure dropped and it took 2 hrs. for my breathing to return to normal.

    Yikes, Fuzzi!! Soy is a sneaky allergen, isn't it? It's in everything, it seems. Did you have to seek medical attention? Do you carry an Epi-Pen? I should carry one, but I'm hardheaded.

    Ah earwax. I've had chronic ear issues since I was a kid. My ear canals are so narrow, and the wax so sticky and hard that the earwax cannot get out easily...so I have to get irrigations twice yearly to clear them out. Nothing else works. I didn't find out until I was a grownup the reasons for my earaches...and that it wasn't due to lack of hygiene.

    I don't carry an Epi-Pen yet, but I need to inquire since i'm running into several episodes. I'm already in the hospital, so the reaction came from their food. Smh ... die and possibly be saved in the same place And I'm wearing this big red band that states allergy... go figure. ** in the midst of typing** It's lunch... dietician stops by to pick up my order. I questioned the missing items. Lord knows I can't afford to lose any weight. The dietician stated she's not taking any chances, glad I spoke up and mentioned how a doctor died recently and they couldn't save him. A peanut. I realize I'm screwed. Yes, soy is a sneaky mf... and I look like a complete nut case questioning ingredients. But eh, you gotta do what's necessary to stay alive.

    ^^Glad you found out what it was, Fuzzi! You definitely don't look like a nutcase questioning everything if your reactions are so bad. My mom has a similar reaction to jasmine (and a lot of things) and checks for it in -everything-.

    I've been having a nasty allergic reaction to something. For the past 8-10 days I have had flaky, itchy rashes on my arms, butt, stomach, pubic area, and back of neck. The ones on my neck have cleared up now. My doctor prescribed some betamethasone twice a day and benadryl. Never had a reaction this bad before . The only new things I have done or tried are Equate wipes and biotin 5000 mcg pills. It's probably the wipes, though. I'll have to stick to Aleva Bamboo or Seventh generation wipes. And the ones I used state "hypoallergenic" .

    I wonder if that melaleuca oil would work for me. I need another betamethasone prescription. The pharmacist said a little goes a long way, but damn, these rashes cover a lot of my body. I thought I had random psoriasis or eczema or something. .

    Why is my sister trying to convince me that I have Lyme disease?
