possible disadvantage, allergies

After some thinking on a possible disadvantage, i realized a very common, yet often overlooked real world one, allergies, this could be a food allergy, unable to eat certain foods unless you want to deal with the reactions, or seasonal, like if your in a forest with tree pollen, this is just a simple idea, but i feel it was worth suggesting.

Pine trees do not have pollen.

Of course pine trees have pollen: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine

Pine pollen can cause hay fever symptoms in sensitive individuals: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allergic_rhinitis

As a lifetime allergy sufferer, I highly recommend this idea.

Hay fever would be an awesomely negative trait to have in a survival situation like NeoScav's, as any allergy sufferer who's forgotten allergy medicine when camping could attest.

Noisy and uncomfortable, what with sneezing, hives, runny nose, etc.
