I searched this forum before posting, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I want to try opium, but I started thinking about the other time I encountered opiates (after surgery I was given morphine for pain) when I broke out into these weird hives a little while after taking it. The nurse didn't know if it was the morphine, the anesthesia, or any combination of what I had been given during surgery, but they ended up fading away as quickly as they had come. She ended up giving me some benadryl and they never came back. I also have an aunt (related by blood) who experienced some severe hormonal problems (acne in her 20s and facial hair) after doing a bunch of drugs (no one's sure exactly what she was doing, but they thought possibly H). So my question is, is it possible to have some sort of allergy to opiates in general, or a sensitivity that causes extra problems? Would it be safe to just go ahead and try opium? And if I did experience a rash or something, would it be okay to take benadryl after doing it? Thanks in advance.
