    I always buy cotton stuff to wear for myself. However, in the past few months, because I am forced to wear a uniform in the army. I found out that my left nipple is allergic to polyester. [​IMG] I really hate this, it has a sensation of being raped by your clothing.... Anyone else has any weird allergies that they would like to share?

    Check it is not something you put in there, I did some weapons training/handling a couple of years back and found black powder, powdered alumina and gunpowder do not do me wonders. If you had a dry cleaned as well sometimes the methyl benzene they use does not vanish all at once.

    No fun allergies to speak of here (tomatoes result in unpleasantness for all concerned and I found I was allergic to cheap soap/handcream a while back (kids all over can feel vindicated when I say soap is bad for me)) but I did once meet a guy who had a phobia of tin foil, I felt kind of bad as I was eating a kitkat at the time.

    I once suffered from "joggers nipple" after a few days hiking - not comfortable at all, every touch from your clothing feels like a cigarette burn. In the end I put sticking plasters over both nips for protection, and thankfully it stopped after a couple of days.

    No proper allergies though thankfully, although my Mrs is almost lethally allergic to Kiwi fruit [​IMG]

    Well that's actually close, except this reaction gives me a sexually feeling. [​IMG] I don't know what is wrong, but as I said, I am being raped by Canadian military uniforms... [​IMG]

    Same thing with my left nipple and being in seawater for a long time...

    Since you're wearing a uniform anyway, just put a bandaid over it.

    My left nipple looks like Linkiboy. The right one looks like the evil sun from SMB3.

    Wow... My professional recommendation would be to keep it covered with band-aid or gauze to reduce exposure. It would also be okay to use a 1% hydrocortisone cream to reduce swelling/irritation.

    I suffer from hayfever, which is a real joy in the summer I can assure you - especially when I'm out golfing [​IMG]

    Oh, and the last (and coincidentally first) time I ate prawns I thought I was going to die! For real!
    I was cold, shivering,had no strength in my legs..... I crawled to the bathroom thinking I was going to be sick (I wasn't though) and just passed out on the carpet - my kids found me there the next morning [​IMG]

    So I guess I'm allergic to seafood too (though I'm in no hurry to repeat the experiment and find out for sure!)
