This should probably go into the "don't do that" thread, but it is a bit too gross.
So I love strawberries. I'm also very allergic to strawberries. I have what is referred to as "rare strawberry allergy symptoms". Usually I can eat one or two without incident as long as I take my allergy medicine.
So I bought my DH some gloriously beautiful strawberries the other day. I came home tonight, had dinner, and they were staring at me saying "eat me". Since I just took my allergy and asthma medicine, I figured one wouldn't kill me.
How wrong I was...
Less than 10 minutes later I start itching, my pulse is racing, my stomach churning, my nose is both clogged and running (I've never figured out how it can be both at the same time, but it does happen ) . I spent the next 10 minutes playing homage to the toilet bowl gods. Clean myself up, go back to the living room. RUN! BACK to the bathroom, #2 and #3 this time.
Now I hurt all over and even the tops of my freaking feet are itching. No hives , just splotchy. I need a shower now, preferably with some oatmeal bath wash.
