Talk Radio 702’s Relebogile Mabotja had a chat with Dr Marinda McDonald, a healthcare practitioner specialising in allergies about how to diagnose and treat allergies.

The World Health Organization estimates that 50 per cent of the population will suffer from at least one allergy by 2050.

While allergies are most common in children, they can appear at any time and any age. Sometimes allergies disappear, only to return years later.
