Q. can places with a very different weather make you allergic to something you werent allergic to before?

my sister just went to England and she doesn't stop sneezing. We all thought she cought a cold but it's been like 8 days now and her eyes are teary and a she just got a small rash on her right arm. are these all even related? I guess we're an allergic family...
A1but how can you actually tell what the allergy is caused by? I mean- there are so many new things in her area now- it can be anything...
A2It does sound like allergy, but the simplest explanation is that she became allergic to some substance (e.g. pollen of plants, animals etc.) than simply to the weather.

However, in order to diagnose the condition correctly I suggest seeing a doctor.
