They're among the most dreaded words in the English language: allergy season. But don't worry – while you're sneezing, scratching, and checking ingredient lists, these celebrities are right there with you. Several famous actors, musicians, and TV stars have crazy allergies. Some of these celebrities have dangerous reactions to certain foods, while other celeb allergies involve animals. Surprisingly, a few of these celebrity allergies are even related to perfume, a popular product for actresses to endorse.

Jessica Alba might be the most outspoken celebrity who has suffered from allergies. The actress's childhood experiences with severe allergies and asthma led her to seek out hypoallergenic alternatives for daily products for her children. Television star Zooey Deschanel has a variety of food allergies, including dairy, eggs, and wheat, so she gets special foods delivered to her trailer when she is working on set. In 2010, Tori Spelling shared her allergy frustrations with the world in a Facebook post. "Dear Allergies...you SUCK! Respectfully, my swollen itchy watery eyes xoxo," she wrote. Dianna Agron is allergic to cats, which posed a problem when she lived with her kitty-loving Glee co-star Lea Michele.

Given the aura of glamor that surrounds the entertainment industry, perhaps you'll think that allergies make these celebrities seem more down-to-earth. Read on to discover what other stars are coping with allergies.
