Matthew, How did your allergies get so bad?

My allergies caused my nose to run every single day of my life for 25 years. My allergies were debilitating and so incessant that I would cry out of frustration. I hated my nose and I wanted to rip it off. Going outside made me sick and it would get even worse with the changing seasons.

I took antihistamines daily and I carried tissues everywhere with me. I was labeled as the “sick kid” in school because of these allergies. It was horrible. I would lay in bed with tissues up my nose just to make it stop for a little.

Thankfully, I was able to resolve my allergies through an elimination diet. My nose doesn't run anymore and I no longer hate when the seasons change!

Allergies - A talk with Matthew’s mom

My allergies started shortly after I was born, I had never known life without a runny nose. When I got old enough, I asked my mom what had happened.

Mom: “Matthew was practically born sick. When I had him, I didn’t have much money. I bought the cheapest formula out there that I could afford. I clipped coupons every week for him. He was raised on soy formula.”

“Eventually, he got croup (an upper airway viral infection), and when he coughed it sounded like a barking dog. I took him to the hospital and the croup went away with medication.”

“That’s when the ear infections started. When he was about 2-3 years old he had 7-8 consecutive ear infections. They put him on antibiotics for 10 days, which would clear his ears. Then within the next 7 days, he'd get another ear infection.”

“Once the ear infections stopped his allergies started. He had no food allergies, but he was allergic to absolutely everything outside. He was sick with allergies or a cold K-12”

“I remember one year for Christmas he asked me for a new nose because of his allergies. That was hard for me.”
