I don’t believe I’m allergic to any wood, but if one inhales dust from any wood, there will be an allergic like reaction. I don’t think that is a positive allergic reaction. Everyone has sensitivity to dust, pollen, etc. It’s just the amount that makes the difference. When I’m doing a lot of sanding, that night , I feel congested, but the next day, I’m alright, so that is why I don’t consider myself allergic. I’m not saying there is not a true allergic reaction to some materials; I’m sure there is, but what some may call an allergic reaction, may not be an allergy at all.

I remember many, many years ago, I had an allergic reaction to shrimp. My face swelled up like a balloon, but a shot from a doctor and that was it. I still eat and love shrimp and have never had a reaction since. That was around 70 years ago.
