noun Derivation
A person with allergies
Used to describe someone with allergies, typically someone that suffers from seasonal allergies (long term, not particular instances). Term probably coined because there is not a word to describe a person with allergies and needed a quick word to describe them rather than saying ‘people with allergies’. Mostly a nonce word. “I’m an allergetic.”
Etymology : probably from 'allergic' or 'allergy' + 'tic'
