From America's most trusted authority on personal health, an essential guide to combating the misery (and the dangers) of nasal allergies.

Almost one in ten Americans suffers from some form of seasonal allergy--and almost twice as many have other forms of nasal allergies or "allergic rhinitis." If you are among these fifty-million-plus sneezing, sniffling, stuffed-up, red-eyed allergy victims, Jane Brody brings you good news: You don't have to take it anymore. Jane Brody's Allergy Fighter is a clear, compact, completely up-to-date guide to understanding the causes of the allergies that plague you, and the actions that you and your doctor can take now to prevent and relieve their symptoms. Among the topics covered: how allergies happen and what substances cause or exacerbate them; the peak allergy seasons across the country; understanding the vast array of antihistamines, decongestants, topical sprays, and other medications; allergy shots; special strategies for treating children. Untreated, nasal allergies can lead to a host of serious health problems, including asthma and chronic sinusitis. Jane Brody's Allergy Fighter is an essential reference to enhancing your quality of life right now--and in the years to come.
