You’re not alone.
According to a new survey, more than two-thirds of Americans say they’ve had nose jobs.
But it turns out that they may be in fact just as prone to allergic reactions as people of other races.
The study, which surveyed 1,700 people across the country, found that people of color are more likely to have reactions like eczema, hives, and sneezing than their white counterparts.
The survey also found that while people of all races are more apt to have allergies, African Americans are more prone to them.
“It’s important to note that the study is correlational in nature, so it’s not clear how the findings of this study might apply to other populations or racial groups,” study co-author David G. Burch, a professor of clinical allergy medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, told Newsweek.
“[But] it’s clear that there is a distinct subset of people who have been diagnosed with a skin allergy that is more severe than the majority of the population,” he added.
As for why it’s so difficult to find a doctor who can treat you, Burch told Newsweek that the reason is simple: “People are afraid of doctors.
They are afraid that if they have an allergy they are going to be stigmatized.
They don’t want to go to a doctor and ask questions.”
Burch and his team decided to conduct their study because they were “getting an increasing number of calls from patients about allergy issues,” he said.
“There’s a lot of misinformation and misinformation about allergies,” he explained.
“So we thought it would be useful to collect this information so that we could help patients and educate them.”
Bizarrely enough, the survey found that almost three-quarters of white people said they were allergic to their nose, compared to only 20% of black people and 20% to 23% of Asian people.
However, African American and Asian people were far more likely than other races to have skin allergies.
A study published last year found that black people are more susceptible to allergies than whites, while Asian people have the most severe allergic reactions to any race.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more people of Indian descent have asthma than other groups.
It’s not all bad news, though.
Researchers have found that Asian women are more than twice as likely to develop allergies as white women, and that they are three times as likely as white men to develop them.
The study also found a correlation between the number of allergies in someone’s family and their risk of developing an allergy.
“A significant association exists between the frequency of skin allergies and the likelihood of developing a skin allergic disease,” Burch said.
