10 Unusual Allergic Reactions Revealed
Doctors detail their experiences with lesser-known allergies

Talk to any physician who treats allergies, and they'll liken their job to that of a police detective. Constantly on the hunt for the unknown offender, an allergy consult often seems more like a witness interrogation featuring a litany of probing questions.

Sometimes, the case is tough to crack, because you can be allergic to just about anything. Some people are even allergic to medications that are used to treat allergies, such as corticosteroids.

Still, seldom are these incidents one-of-a-kind phenomena. Even the most unexpected allergic response is likely to be duplicated in another person, somewhere.

In order to make the job easier for fellow allergy investigators, doctors will publish accounts of rare allergic reactions in medical journals and share their findings at medical conferences and on the Internet.

We've collected 10 of the most unusual allergy stories.

Wow. That was really interesting. Especially about the girl who was allergic to her dad's shaving cream. It really makes you wonder about all the gunk we spread on our skin.

I was surprised that water allergies weren't on the list. It has to be the hardest to deal with: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-520329/The-teenage-girl-allergic-WATER.html
