Allergy care and immunology
Millions of us are allergic to pollen, mold or pet dander. For the most part our reactions to them are annoying but usually mild. However, other allergens – those substances to which certain persons are sensitive – can provoke symptoms far worse than runny noses and itchy eyes. Allergic reactions to certain foods, for example, can be deadly if left untreated. In other words, those of us who suffer from allergies know they’re nothing to sneeze at.
