Are allergies contagious?

My answer is no.  It is a private fight between you and some 'allergens'...
The worst form of allergy I can imagine, as you probably know, is cod liver oil allergy!
Take care

Allergies are not themselves contagious, but we don't always know what causes the allergy (I don't mean the actual attack, but what causes someone who was insensitive to an allergen to becoming sensitive to that allergen), and I could imagine that in some cases that might initially be caused by an infection that triggers an immune response that later becomes confused with the allergen.

Interestingly, almost everyone I was around yesterday, Tarek, Valen, Ida, Steiven had the same issue...I have a feeling though I am the only one who is well all ready as I noticed they were drinking carbonated beverages, eating junk food, and still have no idea how they had an appetite for the such...it will be interesting....well, i did forget Tarek was eating his own food....not junk...so we will see...

Karen, I know you will be reading this...but black and green tea are good when you are sick...but there are factors that may cause other issues while taking this tea that can occur when you are sick...i just can't remember where we were talking about tea...but just read upon this today...Peppermint tea is still the best...

I'm glad you're better too Karen.  I feel like crap and the little 13 year old brat that gave it to me is now sleeping peacefully.

Yup, really looking forward to it. We've got cheap flights to Marrakech and will spend a few days there, then probably get a train to Casablanca to spend a few days. We've not booked hotels or anything, should be okay 'cos it's out of season. I'm really looking forward to exploring the 'old' medinas (old town/quarter) and soukes (markets).

Went to Morocco a good few years ago with a friend but we spent the time in Tangiers. Two blond girls, you can guess the hassle we had (even a fake wedding ring didn't help)! At least my other half will be with me this time.
