Do you believe an ice cream can kill a girl or apizza smell would send a boy to an anaphylactic shock? Let\’s see top five weirdest allergies worldwide as follows.


A little girl is allergic to cold

Priscilla Pomerantz, who is allergic to cold, cannot do many activities during the winter such as playing in the snow and even eating an ice cream because air temperature below 70 degrees can lead her to some negative reactions like difficulty in breathing. Therefore, her parents do everything to keep Priscilla warm. Each morning, she is taken to school by car instead of school bus and sits next to a space heater in her class. The bath water has to be hot enough for her to stand it.

Priscilla takes antihistamines twice a day and carries an EpiPen everywhere

A girl is allergic to almost everything

Laura Weaver, who has hyper-sensitive skin, is allergic to almost everything like dairy products, several fruits, sprays, perfumes, soaps, some plastic furniture and even non-cotton clothing. For example, a peanut would send her into lethal anaphylactic shock or the smell of an air freshener could make her doubled over in pain. The brave teenager didn’t go to school until a special clean room at Wyebridge Sports College was created to protect her from dozens of irritants. She, however, has to spend two hours pasting on three types of cream before putting on head-to-toe bandages to protect her skin every morning and evening.

A women is allergic to love

Unlike the two girls above, Charlotte Davies is allergic to… love. When she met her future husband within weeks, her eyelids erupted with eczema and her eyes swelled to the size of golf balls. The eczema continued for the next two years and flared up whenever she was particularly emotional. Fortunately, her strange allergy disappeared after she got married.

A boy is allergic to pizza smell

No one is allowed to eat pizza near Christopher Merrett because the pizza smell will result him in dead risks. After he touched a tiny trace of milk on a shopping trolley and got an anaphylactic shock, the boy was diagnosed to have severe allergy to dairy products. His parent must give up their favorite food, pizza, to protect him from danger.
