I’ve had allergies since I was young. I remember my hands’ skin dries up and breaks. They’re rough. Washing dishes was not friendly. My mom said I had eczema. I don’t remember any treatment but somehow it vanished. Maybe because I was a kid then.
Now that I’m old, I have asthma. Looking back, it’s probably skin asthma. I’m on maintenance now that tames my asthma but I get some itches starting from the ends of my fingers when I got allergy attack.
Good thing my sense of smell is not much. Maybe I have learned to shut off the odors that trigger my asthma. Maybe my maintenance did that. I’m not sure. I remember before that I get attacks at the smell of perfume, cologne, or something odorously bad like a stagnant canal or garbage truck.
I’m full of allergies. They won’t go away but getting the immune system stronger will surely help.
