mushroom allergies
    #1719090 - 07/15/03 07:47 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

My girlfriend recently got into shrooms in a bit way, and now she wants to introduce a friend. However she is allergic to common edible mushrooms (rashes and the like). Does this mean she is also allergic to shrooms, specifically liberty caps. I did a quick search and came up blank.

Thanks.

It all depends on what she's actually allergic to. Most people who are allergic to mushrooms are actually allergic to the spores. Spores can vary greatly from one species to the next. She may only be allergic to one kind of spore or she may be allergic to all mushroom spores.

What djd said -- is she allergic to spores, or to actually eating the shrooms? If the latter, then she probably is allergic to the magic type too.

If you want to test, have her hold a piece under her tongue for about 15 minutes, and see if there's any reaction. If she's okay, doesn't notice any swelling or itching or whatever, try half a gram.

Don't do this if she's violently allergic to mushrooms -- just if it's a mild allergy. That's just too dangerous.

Keep Benadryl on hand if she does have a reaction.

Cheers for the advice, going to give her Sev's tips and see how it goes.

Thanks.
