What does it mean to have allergies ISBN: 9780431139210
Spilsbury, Louise
Published by Heinemann (What Does It Mean to Have/Be series), 2001
An excellent introduction to allergies - what causes them (pollen, dust, dander, insect stings, food, etc), how the body reacts, and coping with all the different kinds from hay fever, to eczema, to asthma, to anaphylactic reactions. We meet children suffering from different kinds of allergies and learn how they cope with their life style and medication. Good colour photos and diagrams help clarify the information, and the usual glossary, index and list of helpful books and addresses will prove useful.
