It means allergy caused by histamines cannot be permanently cured.

In India eating of raw onions, in many cases, is considered to be the cause of nasal mucous.

Don’t be lackadaisical or lollygag along! Learn new words so you don’t talk poppycock. Maybe next time you meet a whippersnapper you can flummox them with words! There’s no need to feel discombobulated if you hear gibberish and gobbledegook, and don’t be woebegone – learning new words can be easy once you start!


So start now.

How did "shopping mall" come about when "mall" has the same meaning?

Thanks.


Mall has other meanings than just an area of shops.

https://www.thefreedictionary.com/mall

Quote:


1. a large retail complex containing stores and restaurants in adjacent buildings or in a single large building.
2. an urban street lined with shops and closed off to motor vehicles.
3. a large area with shade trees used as a public walk or promenade.
4. a strip of land separating two roadways.
5. pall-mall.


The term "shopping mall" let's a person know which type of mall is referred to.

I agree.

This is the most palpable explanation. Excellent, hedy.

MY SOULMATE






I still say I Love You,
But now there's no reply.
I always feel your presence
As if you never left my side.

I remember your comforting voice.
Now there's not a sound.
Only echoes from the past
Follow me around.

You're always by my side,
But I can't hold your hand.
The reason why God took you
I find hard to understand.

Summer days seem much shorter.
Dark nights just linger on.
Dreams turn into nightmares
When the one you love has gone.

But real love never fades.
It still burns like the sun.
Although they're far away,
Those memories go on and on.

Her spirit will never die
It shines like the stars.
I know you're sleeping in heaven,
But you're living in my heart.
