Acute hypersensitivity pneumonitis fatal?

Not usually

Thigh_pain
Not usually, however very heavy exposure to the inciting agent or very severe responses can cause severe lung injury and result even in respiratory failure. Even in these situations if medical care is sought out the response to steroid medicine is usually very good. Repeat exposures that are untreated can cause a more chronic scarring of the lung or pulmonary fibrosis that can shorten ones life

I have hypersensitive teeth. What can I do?

See your dentist

Head-teeth
Dental hypersensitivity is caused by a variety of issues. Sometimes these are local irritants that can be brushed and flossed off by the patient and yet other causes may require intervention by the dentist. The most important issue is to establish the origin of your hypersensitivity and apply the appropriate treatment. See you dentist for a proper diagnosis.

What does a hypersensitive tooth feel like?

Sensitive to temps

Head-teeth
Hypersensitive tooth means you feel pain or discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold foods. It can be caused by a cavity, gum or bone disease, erosion of the tooth, or root exposure. Toothpaste which target sensitivity can help but I recommend dental visit to check for decay or infection

How do you treat hypersensitivity to sound?

Sound hypersentivity

Allergies
too broad question. Cause of sensitivity? treat the cause! Trauma psychological or physical can trigger hyper response to stimuli , even though sound might not have been part of the trauma. Part of hyperarousal, state of hyper stimulation, easily startled...treat the cause. If cause not found or not remembered (child trauma-abuses), specialists can still help find cause by different modalities
