Zen Breathing.: This sounds an awful lot like bronchitis or asthma brought on by breathing cold air, either with or without humidity.

Vocal cord dysfunction vs. Idiopathic environmental intolerance: Could be worthwhile considering vocal cord dysfunction (paradoxical vocal fold movement) as a contributing factor. This condition is often acutely exacerbated by strong scents/odors. More common in females and tends to affect patients with a history of high anxiety.

There are a number of filters and personal wearable devices that can help the patient deal with exposures in her environment. ...Read more
NO!!!: Food allergies cause life threatening reactions. These reactions can only be effectively treated with Epinephrine (adrenaline).

I recommend claritin, (loratadine) allegra, and zyrtec (or their generic versions) most often. Some "folk remedies" might be very helpful, but their doses are often quite variable and they might not offer consistent relief. ...Read more

No shots for kiwi: An oral reaction to kiwi can be related to a ragweed pollen allergy. Controlling that allergy will ameliorate your symptoms to kiwi. If you get a systemic reaction to kiwi, you need to avoid it all together. It may be related to a latex allergy too. So shots will only help you with the first case, by controlling your ragweed allergy. ...Read more
Bf grows his medical marijuna in our home. I break out on my face now and thought it was acne but not. Could it be weed allergy. What can help this?
