    Hi Cecelian,

    I have a ton of allergies too and new ones are discovered all the time. You're the first person I've ever 'met' who is as allergic to fruits as I am. Add to that the usual suspects plus some medications, even some toothpastes, heat/exercise, and it's fun times. That itching can drive one crazy! For me, it's been about finding the culprits and avoiding them, keeping my body cool, and careful use of antihistamines. But we each have to find what works for us.

    I encourage you to post for more feedback on our Allergies Community .
