Book Review and Giveaway: Asthma Allergies Children: A Parent’s Guide

Posted Feb 25 2011 10:59am
When I was a kid, I suffered from allergies. Pollen, dust, cats and horses were the major culprits. I was heartbroken when my parents gave our cat, Penelope, away to another family. Back then, my parents didn’t have a lot of resources for learning about my allergies, other than discussions with our doctor. Today’s parents are fortunate to have much more information, especially in the book, Asthma Allergies Children: A Parent's Guide , by Paul Ehrlich, MD, and Larry Chiaramonte, MD, with Henry Ehrlich. In conjunction with the website, , parents can find a wealth of information about their children’s allergies, as well as asthma.

In very easy-to-understand terms, Asthma Allergies Children defines allergy and asthma, and expands on topics such as food allergies, skin allergies, allergy testing, medications, immunotherapy, traditional and alternative treatments, the environment, and much more. Real-life stories from the authors’ patients are also included. It’s a very comprehensive guide that every parent with an allergic or asthmatic child should read.
