Types of Allergies

The list of allergies is long, with some more common than others.  But all of them can trigger unpleasant symptoms and sometimes, a very severe reaction that will need emergency treatment. 

Living with any kind of allergy is challenging and can certainly impact on the quality of a person’s life.  In this section types of allergy are explained, together with information and resources to help understand and manage them.
