Hello! My AllergyNetwork is starting a new feature called "Allergen of the Month," which will highlight a common allergen that could be hiding in everyday items or foods, and can be easily overlooked.
Dr. Fred Little, a practicing allergist and pulmonologist, will discuss a "hidden" allergen each month in several categories: Food allergens, allergens causing dermatitis, medications, and allergens in the home. Rather than just provide a list, he will include examples of situations where well-known allergens can be hidden.
The first series of allergens he will address are "Hidden Food and Environmental Allergens." Look for the first Allergen of the Month post next week!
