9. Some People Have the Strangest Allergic Reactions
People can be allergic to just about anything. That includes everyday things like latex, wheat, or even water, and sunlight. It takes a lot of time and patience to figure out what a person could be allergic to. Unfortunately for this person, they had to figure things out the hard way until their doctor finally gave them a diagnosis that helped them to manage their condition in the future. According to AngelicaPickles, all it took was to leave one key ingredient out of their future meals.
“A year ago, I developed a pinprick-looking rash all over my torso and limbs. It was really itchy, and the strangest thing was it was shaped like whip marks, so I had to explain that I wasn’t being abused. It took a couple of weeks and several doctors before I was diagnosed with Flagellate shitake mushroom dermatitis, a freaky reaction to raw mushrooms. I was the first case my dermatologist ever saw.” Hopefully this person doesn’t love eating those raw mushrooms, otherwise she will be heartbroken. Better to be sad over a food you have to avoid, though, then going to an early grave over some fungus.
