This article is from the Children Allergies and Asthma FAQ, by Eileen Kupstas Soo email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
The information in this FAQ is the collected "net wisdom" of a number
of folk. It is not intended to replace medical advice. None of the
contributors are medical professionals. Most of us either have
allergies/asthma or have relatives/children with asthma/allergies, so
this collection represents the experiences and prejudices of
individuals. This is not a substitute for consulting your physician.
