Here is a title that will fill the void in the literature on the prevention and treatment of allergies. The book describes what a sufferer can or cannot be allergic to, what diseases are caused by allergy, which symptoms can be treated, and which can be cured. Among the many common allergic reactions discussed are those caused by bee stings, alcoholic beverages, cosmetics, shellfish and medicines. This helpful guidebook will serve as a valuable alternative to the scattered material, much of it unreliable, currently available on the subject. It is written in plain language, and is easily understandable by laypersons as well as as practitioners who need concise treatment on this complex malady.
