Today, I was riding a longboard down a hill and I fell off. I was all scraped up so I made sure to clean my wounds and put bandages on them. Turns out I'm allergic to the glue on the bandages and I have itchy hives all over and around my open wounds. FML

ouch... It enought that they get itchy when they start to heal, i can't imagine having hives while they are still raw...

or it's a recently developed allergy. allergies can do that. A few years ago I developed an allergy to Neosporin that id never had before

Ooo....Well I Hope You Feel Better >.< At Least You Didn't Die..........

aww, that sucks. inb4"Well why didn't you know that. YDI n00b" I don't think everyone goes around checking the glue on bandaids. Also who knows, this could be a new allergy. Not everyone knows the allergy. YLIF, glad I'm only allergic to penicillin.

I always find it strange when people find themselves allergic to something. Like, someone being allergic to latex condoms, or the glue in band aids. It's just so unexpected, yet it happens. I feel bad for laughing at the word 'wounds'. Just saying it sounds funny though. I'm sorry OP. I hope you get better soon.

That's happened to me before. Only I fell down some concrete steps on my face. And that's where the hives came up. And after the hives, my skin started flaking off...

Ha you said longboard.

How old are you like 2? How have you not come across this before? Unless you're telling me you've gone 10+ years without ever using a band-aid. This seems fishy to me.

he might be using different types of band aids than he used to

I have the exact same problem. I usually have worse marks from my bandages than I do from the actual wound. Plus, if I scratch the area where the bandage adhesive bothers me, I get left with dark brown marks! I guess if it's not too serious, you could always try liquid bandages in the future or gauze and medical tape (gotta find the right one you're not allergic to of course)
