The gender differences and related patterns are more definitive in allergic asthma (31-33). In childhood, boys are disproportionately more often affected by allergic asthma, while this difference disappears in pre‐adolescence when females have a much higher incidence after puberty (34-36).
Can you be allergic to opposite gender?
Could the allergens themselves be female or male? The answer is – yes! Some animal allergens are sex-dependent.
Is there a connection between allergies and human genetics?
This familial tendency to develop allergic conditions is thought to have a genetic link known as atopic. It is estimated that more than half of children born into atopic families will develop an allergic disease, whereas the incidence of children with no family history of allergic disease is one in five.
What is the probability that the student is female or has allergies?
If a student is female, then the probability she has allergies is P(allergies|female) = 10/23 = . 435. However, the unconditional probability of having allergies is P(allergies) = 18/40 = . 45.
Do allergies have the same effect on everyone?
Different types of reaction can cause the same symptoms. The same type of reaction can cause different symptoms in different people and even different symptoms in the same person every time it occurs, so an egg allergy can cause a swollen itchy rash on one occasion and vomiting on the next.
Can allergies be passed through sperm?
Semen allergies are primarily caused by proteins found in a man’s sperm. Some research also suggests that certain medications or food allergens found in sperm can trigger symptoms. Beyond having unprotected sex, risk factors for HSP aren’t clear.
Can sperm cause itching?

Why do allergies run in families?
We do know that allergies tend to run in families. If you have allergies, it’s very likely that at least one of your parents does too. Exposure to allergens at times when the body’s immune system is weak, such as after an illness or during pregnancy, may also play a role in the development of allergies.
Are the events male and left handed independent?
When knowledge that one event has happened does not change the likelihood that another event will happen, we say the two events are independent. These probabilities are not equal, therefore the events “male” and “left-handed” are not independent.
Are the events homeowner and high school graduate independent?
Are the events “being a high school graduate” and “being a homeowner” independent? Since these two probabilities are not equal to each other, then these events are not independent of each other.
Does allergies mean weak immune system?
