Dear Reader: Allergies arise from the bodies immune system reacting to sustances which have entered the bloodstream or systems connected to the bloodstream. Almost any thing can cause an alergic reaction in any one. There are common alergies and those which are not so common. In the case you are concerned with "bleach", it may need to be determined if it is the bleach itself or an additive or something the bleach is disolving or reacting with. Even the container the bleach comes in could be disolved in a proportion which causes a reaction in the very sensitive person. Some persons have reactions to taste or smell which make them have allergic like symptoms. Your alergist may help with that and the aformentioned. Dwight
