What did Reddit users say about this puzzle?

“My guess Allegra=Shellfish Ben=Bee stings Clara=Nuts Flora=Pollen Zach=Cats,” posted a Reddit user.

“My guess Allegra=Shellfish Ben=Bee stings Clara=Nuts Flora=Pollen Zach=Cats,” added another.

“Flora has seasonal allergies, so she’s Pollen. Clara’s is not related to animals, and since Pollen is taken, it must be nuts. Allegra is food related, and since nuts it has taken, it must be shellfish. Ben is not allergic to cats, so must be the only other one remaining, bees. Zach takes the only one left, cats,” suggested a third.

“I got stuck because I assumed that bees are also considered seasonal. I've never seen a bee during winter months,” shared a fourth.

“Discussion not about solution: Who the heck are Flora and Zach? Allegra is Allegra, Clara is Claritin, Ben is Benadryl. Are there two other antihistamine medications that aren’t ringing a bell for Flora and Zach?” joked a fifth.

“Flora's allergic to Pollen, the only seasonal allergy amongst them. This means Clara is allergic to peanuts, the only remaining non-animal allergy. This leaves Allegra with a shellfish allergy, since it's the only food left. Therefore, Ben must be allergic to bees, since he's fine with cats, And Zach must be allergic to dandruff,” wrote a sixth.
