live with allergiesAsthma has a massive effect around the world on people around the world. From the outside looking in, it is sometimes hard for others to understand what it is like to live with allergies and their symptoms, including asthma. At Test My Allergy, we are determined to change how people perceive those living with asthma and other allergies, and help those who suffer from allergies and sensitivities to understand them, as well as manage them.
