Anyone else have this issue? I have severe non-allergic, non-eosinophilic asthma, but also have hayfever - which is a bit weird but I have read up on it and it's possible; seems to be mainly trees.
I have triggers including floral scents such as lavender, rose, violet etc but they just trigger asthma (ie no hives, itching, swelling etc) and I wouldn't say they are food allergies as such - they will set me off if I smell them from a distance so if I consume them (and it doesn't take much) they're also an issue. First time it was eating chocolates which caused much coughing; now I can get a mini-attack with the tiniest hint of eg rose in a drink.
I now seem to be getting extra random allergies from the odd food as well: 2 years ago it was mango which is exclusively asthma, but moved on rapidly from 'coughing fit after drinking a glass of pure mango juice' to 'full on mini asthma attack with peak flow drop (unusual for me) taking time and a lot of ventolin to sort, after a tiny lick of yoghurt' the next time. I don't like or eat mango that much so it was a while in between.
Now i seem to have a celery allergy (not 100% sure but seems the most likely culprit: yesterday rash on hands, today major itching). Don't think this one affects asthma but I don't really want to experiment further given I seem to have had a more intense, if non-serious, reaction the second time (I know this increased reaction can happen with allergies).
Anyone else?! I had always thought all my triggers were non-allergic and that I generally didn't have allergies; this is very confusing tbh.
