Diagnosing a drug allergy can be hard, especially if the symptoms are already fading. Your doctor will need your help in figuring out what caused your reaction. He'll need to find out if it's a true allergy, a reaction to a different drug, or something not even related to a drug.
Here are eight questions to ask yourself. Write down the answers -- or have a friend or family member do it for you -- and bring them to your doctor's office.
Here's a wild guess: When an allergy attack hits and leaves you sneezing and
itching, with teary eyes and a nose that is runny and stuffed, you probably
aren't much in the mood for romance.
It may sound obvious that drippy noses don't bring out the sex kitten in
people. But for the first time, a study has looked at the impact allergies have on our sex lives and found that many
people with chronic allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, often put the kibosh
on sex when symptoms are flaring.
