  • One in three of us experiences allergies at some point in our lives and we are more allergic than ever before, so why are allergies still so misunderstood?

    In Understanding Allergy, Dr Sophie Farooque, a leading expert and consultant in allergy, will provide allergy sufferers and their families with the knowledge they need to help them navigate this minefield. The book will offer practical advice to reduce unnecessary suffering, debunk common allergy myths and address key topics including:

    · The allergy epidemic
    · Understanding and treating hay fever and rhinitis
    · Living with food allergies, delayed food allergies and anaphylaxis
    · Drug allergies
    · What to do if you think you have an allergy
    · Eczema and allergy prevention

    Many people who are allergic often struggle to access help, whilst many think they have an allergy when they do not - Understanding Allergy is the essential and concise guide to diagnosis, treatment and lifestyle changes, to help you manage and alleviate your allergies.
