Allergy Awareness Week: Allergies to Pet Dander and Pollen
Allergy Awareness Week (24th – 30th April) is run by Allergy UK, who organise a series of awareness weeks throughout the year. The aim of Allergy Awareness Week is to highlight the issues faced by those with allergies.
We spoke to The ID Band Company customer Allie, 32, to find out how she manages her allergies, and why she thinks it’s important to raise awareness. She suffers from two of the most common allergies, which have caused her to have severe allergic reactions.
“I think it’s good to raise awareness about allergies, and how they affect people’s day to day lives. It’s also important to know how we can help each other.
“Since I’ve developed my allergies, my friends and family have started making a conscious effort to minimise risks when I visit.”
