Abstract : An allergy is an affliction that causes great physical and moral discomfort to man. It manifests itself in many ways. To recognize the intrinsic cause of an allergy is not easy. Allergic skin tests utilizing occupational and domestic allergens, make it possible to detect the source of the allergy. The prescription for the cure is simple, complete exclusion of all contact with the allergen, and then the affliction disappears just as suddenly as it broke out.
