Yes: Drug allergy is a complex issue, so many drugs r in the market with many active / inactive ingredients, fortunately enough only few people develop drug allergy, if at all in doubt stop the medicine review it with ur doctor to replace it, if it is an absolute necessity to take the drug in question consult an allergist.

A 19-year-old member asked:

Is there a such thing as an allergy to physical activity?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Carson
Internal Medicine 29 years experience
Acutally...Yes: Some people will develop hives on their skin (itchy red bumps - similar to what you get with mosquito bites or with some other allergic reactions) in response to exercise. This can be mild, or sometimes severe, but shouldn't be confused with people who do "not like" to exercise. If it occurs, call your doctor for an appointment, or call 911 if it involves trouble breathing.

I think I have an allergy to rapeseed oil. Is that common?

A rare allergy: Rapeseed oil is called canola oil today. It's the basic ingredient of most vegetable oils. Because canola oil is extracted at very high heat from the seeds any allergenic proteins are denatured and rendered harmless by the processing.
