Free text in Environmental Allergies

There is a somewhat limited selection of environmental allergies. It would be nice to have a free text selection for the allergies. Ex: unable to add allergy for shampoo due to missing selection in pull down list.

        free text for "allergies" of all kinds is still necessary. not all "reactions" are "allergies", some are just patient preferences, treatment failure, or simple dislike of a particular medication. I need a place to record those comments for future reference.

        Seriously, why is there no free text for elemental allergies? Bees, Wasps, Tape, and Latex allergies are common and a simple addition of these would be not only reasonable, but important

        Your list for allergies is too limited. Let us free-text it in.

        This would be very important for severe allergies to uncommon substances.

        Add bee/wasp stings please. This is common.

        unable to add allergy to bee stings

        I agree with wanting ability to free text allergies. There is no selection for Bee Stings in environmental allergies or anywhere that I can find.

      • Dr Kim Lane commented  · 

        Free text for all allergy areas and for reaction- come do not recall severity or exact reaction -would be helpful also faster if could add to pollens like spring pollen or late summer pollen or fall pollen- for example.

        Thank you.

        There is no place for BEE STING for environmental allergies and this is quite important!!

      • Darwin Boor, MD commented  · 

        Some common allergies should be including in the standard lists (ex. bee sting, wasp sting). Contact our allergists for their suggested inclusions to the list.
