BeschreibungI had strep throat and my doctor prescribed penicillin, which I had taken several times before. After taking the medicine for two days, I actually felt worse than I did before I started taking it. On the fifth night, my fever was up to 103 degrees and I had an itchy rash on my stomach and pain in my joints. It hurt too much to even walk.Millions of people, including teens like Kelly, who describes her experience above, suffer from allergies. While Kelly's allergic reaction was caused by a drug, some are caused by pollen, pet dander, certain foods, insect stings, and a host of other allergens. Allergic reactions range from the annoyance of a stuffy nose and headache to the embarrassment and discomfort of skin rashes to the sudden life-threatening emergency of anaphylaxis.This book is a useful guide to allergies and what causes them, how they are diagnosed and treated, and how allergens can be avoided. It also takes a look at the link between allergies and asthma. Almost everyone suffers from allergies or has a friend or family member who does. This book will be a valuable resource in the understanding of allergies and how to cope with them in everyday life.
