I seem to be developing new allergies recently. I thought that as we got older the incidence of this lowered or we outgrew our allergies.

Several weeks ago, I broke out in a rash on my back, which later spread to my shoulders, arms and trunk. Narrowing down the culprits is difficult, but we were working in the yard that day and I got a good back rub from my dear husband later, or it could have been the generic tylenol I had taken a day before ( it is the only drug I ever use for aches and pa ins) or the new laundry detergent or the even the shampoo i've been using for a couple of years. Nasal allergies seem to be worse this season also.

Going to the dr. tomorrow to see if she can help narrow down the cause. Thanks.

It's always possible to develop new allergies (or so I understand).

Nasal allergies have been real bad in the Northeast this season. A couple of days this year I just had to call it a day and get my head down, the sinus headaches were untouched by the normal OTC meds, and the meds themselves were leaving me feeling completely out of it.
