Allernet > Helpful Hints > Introduction

Helpful Hints for Allergy Sufferers have been created by Allergy/Immunology specialist Steven L. Kagen, M.D. for the benefit of both his patients and the general public. Many of the Helpful Hints appearing here on the NPN web site have been published elsewhere by Dr. Kagen in local and national newspapers, educational newsletters, on Kleenex® tissue packages, and on television broadcasts from NBC and CNN.

The Helpful Hints provided here by Dr. Kagen are not meant to take the place of your own physician’s advice and counsel. Every allergy patient is unique, and what works for one patient may not apply to another. If you do have an allergic disease, it is most important for you to obtain an exact diagnosis. For most all patients, this means seeing an allergy and asthma specialist.

NPN will be happy to help you find an allergy specialist close to you, or you may telephone the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology at 1-800-822-2762.

It is our sincere hope that you will benefit from NPN’s Helpful Hints for Allergy Sufferers.
