That's curious....: Allergic reactions are when the body's immune system detect something that it recognizes as a foreign substance (ingested, contact through skin, food or medicine, or in the case of auto-immure diseases, it's own cells). One reax is to mobilize cells that secrete anti-histamines to fight the allergic reax. So, allergic relax to antihistamine would be very unusual.

Under anesthesia: People inhale tiny particles every day that never trigger the cough reflex. Things like the particulate of air pollution or smoke will often not trigger much of an effect.The lung eventually cleans these up over time.
