Worst Things To Be Allergic To


The Top Ten

1 Water (Aquagenic Pruritus)

You have to drink water or certain death!

How can you be allergic to water if much of your body is made up of it? - JoeBoi

I'd kill myself if I was allergic to water.

You're not a normal person if you're allergic to water

2 Milk (Lactose Intolerance)

Would be horrible because milk is in so many things. - JoeBoi

I used to be lactose intolerant as a child but fortunately I outgrew it

Well my dad is. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I am lactose Intolerant and it's not so bad.Like, there is something I can eat/drink, but they have no lactose chocolate.That makes me really happy! :-D

3 Peanuts

So common that some facilities banned peanuts from them. - JoeBoi

This is by far the worst allergy. My brother has a peanut allergy, and it totally sucks because I'm never allowed to have peanut butter, some types of chocolate, peanut butter ice cream, and much more. If you are allergic to peanuts, you have to watch every single thing you eat, including cakes, chocolate, ice cream, donuts, etc. I honestly think it is way worse then being allergic to water, but that would suck, too.

I would hate to be allergic to peanuts. I love peanut butter. I know a lot of people with a peanut allergy, and it is so hard for them not to be able to eat the things they desperately want. Whenever I hang out with a friend with a peanut allergy, I feel deeply sorry for them having to ask if certain foods have peanuts as one of the ingredients at every restaurant they go. It is very hard, like all allergies are, but this one is very hard.

This is the worst because people around can't eat peanuts or you may still get sick. If I am on a plane and someone opens a jar of nuts - I'm HISTORY!

4 Air

Like you would rather be allergic to air than be allergic to milk or peanuts? - DrayTopTens

You would die within 2 minutes

You will die if you don't have oxygen - ElSherlock

Well then you would die immediately. - JoeBoi

5 Wheat (Gluctosium)

Because there is gluten in everything these days. It's so hard to avoid and there is no cure if you eat it you must suffer the consequences for three days. At least for me it's three days of pain, discomfort and exhaustion among other gross symptoms

It would suck because wheat is in too many things. - JoeBoi

No Bread Whatsoever my mom is Gluctiosic. - willowtimes

I haz an allergy to wheat

6 Chocolate

Yeah, It would suck to be allergic to chocolate if somehow you got diagnosed and it was your favorite food. - JoeBoi

What. That's so sad. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I am allergic to chocolate. I hate it. I was not allergic to it until about four years ago. My friends, because they know they can play around with me, they always eat chocolate right in front of my face and smile at me. It does not bother me even though I would kill to have some chocolate... Ironic because chocolate would kill me...

I couldn't imagine being allergic to chocolate and I feel sorry for those who are allergic. Chocolate is my all-time favorite food and I would hate it if I was never able to eat chocolate again.

7 Grass

I feel sorry for the people who are allergic to grass that every time they walk on it, they get an allergic reaction. - JoeBoi

Definitely sucks. I remember having to walk home from school and my legs being practically numb by the time I got home. And I broke out in hives during a fire drill, it was torturous. Now being older I can control the extent of time I'm outside more but it still annoying

I'm allergic to grass and being outdoors is miserable.

I am also allergic to grass and I can't do anything in the grass without breaking out in an itchy rash

11 Oxygen

I can't believe that this exists. - LeaPurple2003

14 Fish



15 Fruit

I hate these allergies. I can't eat from strawberries to melons, apples, pears, banana etc. Etc. Oh did I mention I'm allergic to grass as well as most types of tree sorts during the pollination seasons aka from march to late october? I'm also allergic to cat hair, horse hair, and I can't be close to hay without getting a runny nose and very itchy eyes as with most of these allergies..

16 Meat

That's horible

17 Monosodium Glutamate
18 Mold

I am allergic to mold on teams. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I meant trees. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I am allergic to plant and soil mold, and I live in Kansas so we have droughts then floods then it's really moldy so I have bad reactions to it.

19 Animal Fur

Its sucks, every time I play with my cat I will find out that I got a flu, my eyes will turn reddish and my skin become itchy. Its sucks, just sucks.

20 Cats Cats The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.

That would be bad - lizard302

I'm allergic to cats.

21 Perfume
22 Latex

How can you even touch latex without getting a reaction? By wearing gloves? Oh wait, some gloves have latex in it. - JoeBoi

It sucks, I am allergic to it

So annoying. not only can't you chew some gum, or be fine in a new car, but everyone has to make the condom joke. Haha, not. It gets so old.

It is the worst allergie if I even smell it in the air I can't breathe

23 Spices

Salt would be terrible

24 Rodent Bites
25 Bacon

Their would be no point on living



26 Dogs Dogs The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

This is me, but I still want a dog

But they are sooo cute

27 Eggs

I'm allergic to eggs and my friend is allergic to peanuts, we both have a high chance of death if we eat it. He said that my allergy is so much more annoying because eggs are in almost everything. And I have to agree, everything that is annoying with peanut allergy is the same for eggs, exept that we cannot eat half of everything we want.

My sister's allergic to eggs and I always feel sorry for her, since she's been allergic to it, I couldn't eat many things with eggs in it. We always have to substitute eggs with different ingredients. - LeaPurple2003

Seriously? Am I the only poor bean allergic to eggs? They're in practically every kind of pastry!

28 Skin
29 People

Dez nuts

30 Dust Mites

I'm allergic to dust and dust mite, which is EVERYWHERE, more than water. I can't go anywhere without sneezing or getting itchy eyes or skin, it's the worst most annoying thing.

I’m not allergic to dust, technically everyone is, but I’m a bit over that. My dog always rolls around, and already has crunchy like fur, and whenever I pet him, I sneeze and puff.

I'm anaphilactic towards dust mites and dust mites are in EVERYTHING coushiny such as couches. this means I can't have sleepovers because I have a spetial matress and sheets that are dust mit free. and not to mention that I can't even sit on the couch to watchtv without breaking out in itchy welts

31 Tree Nuts


32 Trees

Crabs, Shrimps and other crustaceans that turns red - red-orange when cooked.

36 Mosquitoes Mosquitoes Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

I am allergic to them and it sucks more than you would think. I can't go outside at night (which means no camping, 4th of July sucks, no night fairs) I need top of the line bug spray which costs A LOT! If I get bit more than 4x my throat starts swelling, my heart rate increases, I get very light headed. I do not want to know what happens if I get bite more.

37 Ivy

If it touch it my skin burns off, and if ingested I could have anaphalactic shock.

Corn is in everything! Between corn starch, high fructose corn syrup and citric acid(all derived from corn) I literally can only eat whole food items.

Really? If you were allergic to hair, than you will have to shave it off to avoid any reactions. - JoeBoi

44 Light
45 The Cold

You can actually be allergic to the cold. Just watch the reaction time video. It seems VERY hard to deal with. It's sad that this is possible.
