Several options: There are both blood tests and skin tests that can be done to see if possible allergies to specific foods/exposures. Would work in concert with your doc or allergist, as these tests can be a little misleading at times - just because something comes back "positive" does not always mean a true clinical allergy exists.

Knowing what to expect when taking an illicit substance like marijuana is like a roll of the dice. So you can't know what will happen to you based on what happens to others.

Sometimes lip balm or lip sunscreen chemicals cause an allergic reaction. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods and juices. A doctor can help. ...Read more
