Hi.  My daughter had mono and pneumonia after which she developed severe contamination OCD.  We got her therapy and she was fine.  Then she complained one day of seasonal allergies and went into a full blown psychosis, sudden onset.  Can pollen cause pans to flare into a psychosis?

Allergies definitely constitute an "immune event," so the immune reaction and its accompanying inflammation could definitely contribute to a PANs flare.  I would look into other triggers as well, however, as I don't recall having heard of a "full blown psychosis" reaction to only seasonal allergies.  Perhaps she's been exposed to other bacterial or viral invaders, as well?

If you were to listen to the alternative world, psychosis is a symptom of an overwhelmed liver.  So yes, pollen can cause the "barrel to overflow".  A good idea to try would be an enema, to relieve the liver overload.
