There are lots of things wrong with me, but I've always taken comfort in that I don't have any major alergies, the kids in the generation after me, all seemed to be born with super allergies, sevral kids in my extended family have become super sensitive, can't eat nuts, can't go near any furry creature, can't eat wheat, or anything really, I've always been spared this, while others got pollen allergies, I never had that problem, and so I felt superior, it was the one thing I had going for me, my immune system seemed to work more or less like it should, not to hyper but not weak, never get infections from cuts, never got pneumonia, always rebounded from flue quickly.

But with great hubris comes the great fall, now at a age of 27, I have gotten a super allergy, I have no idea against what, but I guess some sort of plant, my eyes fog over(very anoying when painting) I get those suger cubes on my eye lids, I havn't been able to breath through my nose in 3 days.

This is probebly just the start, I do not expect to live past 30 now, all those things I was spared as kid will come at me all at the same time, massive infections from paper cuts, pneumonia, ear infections, nut allergies, next time I eat a peanut I will die.

I have to get a bobble and live in it, the world is to dangerous for me now.

Allergies suck! Best of luck on coping.

How will a wooly hat with a pom-pom protect you from allergies ? grin

Tough break – hopefully it's a one-off. I didn't realise I had an allergy to raw chilli seeds until I prepared a meal using fresh chillis for the first time (about the age of 30). Never again !

so does this only happen when you have been painting? Are you using a new paint? new primer? new glue? new brush cleaner? anything new? new desk, new rug? really anything new?

You have my sympathies.

I've had seasonal outdoor allergies for the last ~35 years. When I was a kid, the attacks were so bad my eyes swelled shut. Thankfully that doesn't happen any more. But the last few days I've felt like gouging them out they itch so bad.

You mean bubble?
Good luck on finding the cause.

I have read that there is some belief the rise in allergies may be caused by a combination of all the anti-biotics used in animal feed and the generally cleaner nature of people. Our immune systems get out of whack because they don't have as much to do.

Something that seems to help. My wife also gets bad seasonal allergies. During the season, she buys locally produced honey. She swears eating it lowers the symptoms. The idea being that the honey provides low daily doses of the allergens so that you build a tolerance.
