    Allergic flare-up about once a week, all year long
    randyelkc posted:
    Last 24-36 hours and like clockwork about once a week. Allergy test reported allergic to pet dander, dust mites, and one mold but the doctor saw no major reaction. I have a cat and a dog. Mainly, it's the year round consistency that confuses me.

    Hi, I was recently tested for Mast Cell Activation Disease/Disorder. You may want to talk to your allergist about this. It causes random unexplained release of histamine causing symptoms similar to systemic allergic reactions. It can also cause random anaphalaxis.

    I hope that helps. Take care
    God bless
