When I was Six years, old I learned that I had an allergy to Spearmint. I was so young and tiny, the allergy almost killed me. I also swallowed quite a bit of it at the time, Now that I am older, I've been slowly learning all the different toothpastes I'm allergic too with a much less severe consequence. Aim has now been added to that list. Monday I used Aim Gel toothpaste. Most gel toothpaste use a mixture of Mint oils to create that refreshing and cool, minty, mouth cleansing experience. Low a behold a few hours later, My lips and throat swell, the entirety of my tongue feels burnt, blisters on my gums, inner cheeks, and the corners of my lips dry, cracked and began to puss. This is known as the onset of Anaphylactic shock which consists of a few of the most uncomfortable symptoms known to human kind, and in many cases be life threatening. If you ever show these symptoms its important to be aware of even the smallest changes in your routines. If these symptoms occur its important to stop using said product immediately. With close care the symptoms haven't spread and I am able to swallow foods and my breathing is and continues to be normal. I came very close to going to the emergency room and I'm happy I just got to stay home and rest. A lot of people suffer from a food allergy or allergic reactions to commonly used products, I even knew a girl once who was allergic to WATER. People even die from these reactions coming on fast because of the ingestion of the allergen, luckily, I don't have to consume toothpaste and its mostly topical. Lesson learned; Never use gel toothpastes ever again O____O In my state of feeling like a balloon head, I was just wondering what you guys are allergic too, How did you find out you had an allergy, and how does it effect your daily routines?
