Q: Allergy or something else?

I thought I was having an allergic reaction to some fruit I ate the other day.  But now the skin around my face is so itchy and I have red rings around my eyes.  Is this something else entirely???

you better go for a skin doctor near in any hospital. skin disease are a bit complex to deal , treat and diagnose. did you get the before ? do you feel changes in your breathing pattern, do you feel itching near the larynx or just behind and upper part of your tongue. lethargy or cold like symptoms. have you got this while drinking beers or any quality alcohol, are there any trees, flowers, dusty environment around you. do you walk alot in the Sun. well if YES is the answer, so its allergy or sign of weaker immune system. better try cetirizine hydrochloride tablet. just take 1 pill at night, you will fall asleep nicely as it induce sleep. if you see any reduction in it so the medicine worked. if not go to hospital and check up with a doctor.

Go straight to hospital and see a doctor, allergic reactions can be very serious. I'm allergic to chocolate ice-cream; just one mouthful and all my hair falls out. Just like that. Go get yourself checked.

I've been drinking milk tea for several months since I got here in China because my girlfriend loves it so much..   I've been eating watermelon since I was a little kid...     I went to a milk tea shop and had watermelon milk tea..  Tasted fine, but within 6 hours I was having a very serious allergy like reaction that I had never seen before in my life..  From my face down to my waist.. My girlfriend was soooo worried about me and kept asking why I didn't know I was allergic to watermelon.  It was all I ate that day and my girlfriend had some and didn't have the same rash..    It was gone within a few days and a week later I had a small slice of watermelon at a party, didn't get any allergic reaction.. Also I had a *LOT* of watermelon, almost half a watermelon a few weeks ago an didn't get an allergic reaction... 

 

 To this day, I still have no idea what they put in my watermelon milk tea that made me react like that, but i haven't been back to that milk tea shop since...  

 

Aside from my girlfriend forcing me to drink half a dozen cups of traditional Chinese medicine everyday for a few days afterwards, no harm done I guess...

Allergy, i do believe.

I get the same thing when I eat mangoes. I also suffer the same reaction to latex, which is a related allergy. Fruits in the latex family include mangoes, bananas, avocados, and guavas, among others. You might want to look into it. Latex allergies suck the big one. I don't have sensitivities to those other fruits yet, but I always need to be on the lookout.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
