Allergies and intolerances

Not really allergies?

I have all sorts of stupid little reactions to things, not really allergies but know I have written them all down it's kinda stupid

Contact skin reactions to:
Latex, plastic, rubbers & adhesives
Toiletries make up, perfumes & some suncream
Leylandii, nettles (very violent but only sometimes), various other plants (but I tend not to mess around with plants)

Mouth ulcers with:
Almonds
Something I ate on 27th December (can't work out what)

Sometime fairly aggressive intestinal reactions to:
coconut
possibly milk - I'm messing around

They are all very mild and hardly inconveniencing but annoying. Am I alone?

I get that kind of thing - over time have suspected bananas, tomatoes and peppers but usually have these with no problem. And had a terrible reaction to a condom once but never again. dunno why or why they come and go

I've been told they can sometimes be influenced by hormones. No idea if that's true, but might explain the randomness of things?

Hormones - interesting

DH has added

Metals, occasional antibiotics, insect bites & condoms (like you, yellowflowers)

It's so confusing; I was stung by a wasp once and I lost the use of my leg for about 3 hours but I have also been stung and had no reaction or had a gnat bite & ended up with a lump the size of an apple
