Content creator Flaqo has revealed he struggled with allergies for months.

The online sensation through his social media said his body kept swelling at night and thus he kept cancelling plans as he could not go out.

"I had bad allergies(hives/urticaria) since 2014 bruh I talked about it 7 months ago, I could not sleep every night due to discomfort," he said.

"I could not shoot consistently, my body was always swelling daily, could not go out, was always cancelling plans."

Flaqo said the allergies started disappearing after he took life easy and focused on praying.

For three months now, there have been no allergy signs and his mental health was key in the development.

"Ever since, I took life easy, no stress, pray, mental health checks, the allergies disappeared. It's been three months and no sign of allergy. Attending to your mental health is key man," he wrote.

In a recent interview, Flaqo who isn't afraid about speaking about challenges he faces opened up about his mental health.

"During Covid-19, I made a lot of money. I was taking every advert that came to me. Adverts upon adverts. But I realised that it was leading me astray and I wasn't enjoying myself. It was like I had sold my soul."

Asked how he dealt with online pressure, Flaqo said he took a break cause he was falling apart.

"There were so many voices I wasn't used to hearing. Most of those voices were from social media, and they were tearing me down."

The comedian added that despite ignoring the negative criticism from people online, it still bothered him.

Flaqo also shared that money derailed him during that period.

"The more there is money, it takes away the artistic value and humour of my comedy. What matters to me is the art, before the money."

Other celebrities who have struggled with allergies include singer Vivian who said she suffered chronic allergies, which ended after she visited a man of God.
