’Tis the season for sneezing

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) said traditions such as Christmas trees and poinsettia plants can cause symptoms.

ACAAI president Dr Michael Foggs said those with allergy and asthma were bound to come across triggers this holiday season.

“By ensuring your home isn’t allergen laden, you can help guests relax, feel great and have an enjoyable season,” he said.

To make sure you are the hostess with the mostess, the college has provided some advice.
