"As the charity marks 25 years of supporting allergy sufferers it reveals that despite greater awareness common misconceptions still remain as strong as a quarter of a century ago. Allergy UK found that of 41% of those surveyed, who either have an allergy or have children who have allergic disease, almost half feel their allergies have not been taken seriously or have been dismissed when speaking about it. Shockingly, 39% say they have had their allergy dismissed at work, followed by within the home (35%) and at a restaurant (33%)."

"Each day of the week will focus on a particular allergic condition, meaning we will be covering the topic of allergy as a whole. Keep an eye out on our social media pages and the website every day during the week to see more details on the topic we’ll be discussing, and the activities surrounding it.

The order of topics discussed in the week is as follows:

Monday - Misconceptions of Allergy

Tuesday - Hay Fever and Asthma

Wednesday - Skin Conditions

Thursday - Food Allergy"
