Now, these aren't your everyday hives, mind you; its more like the result of blister beetle venom.

* Pam from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' willingly eats a vegan buffet mainly composed of soy (which she is allergic to) because she wants to eat something. The guy on charge of it inmediately tells her to stop eating but Pam just asks if he has Epinephrine. He nods and she ''continues eating'' assuming that injecting her with an [=EpiPen=] would save her life no matter how much she ate.

** This is a citation from RealLife: in 1920's Dublin, there was a self-scourging religious manic called Matty Hislop, who in addition to delf-denial and literally wearing a hairshirt, was seriously allergic to cats and who did indeed take to carrying a kitten to provoke an asthmatic reaction. There was, and maybe still is, a religious movement dedicated to Hislop being elevated to sainthood, although most people of his time thought he was a nutjob. BrendanBehan described him as dangerous, dissapprovingly citing of his doing unpaid 14 hour working days for no doubt grateful bosses, noting he was doing some other fella out of a paying job in a time of want, and how bloody Christian was ''that''?

* ''That70sShow'': When Kelso starts training for police academy, he decides to drink raw eggs like Rocky does. He [[NotNowKiddo shushs Jackie's attempts to speak]] until ''after'' he's finished drinking the eggs, at which point she reminds him he's allergic to them.
* In ''FatherTed'', Ted mentions a priest called Matty Hislop who, despite being allergic to cats used to carry a kitten with him and "sniff it from time to time". His reason for doing this was that he was part of a religious sect that involved self-punishment.

* ''FamilyGuy'': Meg threatens this in the middle of a rant to her parents about how terrible they are, saying that she's just gonna go upstairs and eat a whole bowl of peanuts. It has no effect on Peter and Lois, because they don't even remember that she's allergic to peanuts.
* In ''KiddVideo'', the fairy Glitter becomes super-strong when she sneezes, leading the band to find new sneeze stimuli for her [[OnceAnEpisode whenever they're in a tight spot]].
* In one episode of ''RegularShow'', Rigby attempts to eat a huge plate of eggs to win a trucker's hat, but ends up in the hospital after only two bites.
* ''ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'': In "The Creeping Creatures", Daphne uses her allergy to synthetic animal skin to prove that a shipment of gator skin products are counterfeits.
* Zipzee does this with flowers repeatedly in ''MyLittlePony'': ''[[MyLittlePonyG3 The Princess Promenade]]''. Not for any strategic reason like the above examples, she just really likes the smell of flowers and Spring, and refuses to let her allergies get in the way of it.

* At the end of ''{{Innerspace}}'', Tuck is running out of air in his pod and needs to get out of Jack's body soon or he'll die. Currently he is in Jack's lungs, but can't get to a handy orifice in time. Somebody remembers that a human sneeze travels at roughly 300 miles per hour - leading Jack to induce a sneeze by huffing hairspray, as he was diagnosed with an allergy to same at the beginning of the movie.
