Allergic TO asthma? Now there's an interesting one. :p Surely asthma IS the allergic reaction (perhaps to some allergens further down the list) rather than the allergen? I think the poor person writing that article may need a little education...


hi ratty

i think that might actually be my wording lol

yes it seemed like asthma was the allergy lol

sorry for confusion - xx


Nah, I think they're the confused ones. They do talk about asthma and allergy being related but asthma is definitely listed as the top 'allergy' with actual allergens further down the list. Some people might call me pedantic...

Here's a little url to the same article:



for those of us who use firefox, this add-on will create those tiny url's we love with a single click.
