It is often misdiagnosed by doctors who treat only mold allergies with immediate reaction only. This allergy is tested by antibodies called IGE. It can be controlled by Zyrtec and Claritin. These constitute only 30 per cent of the diseased population while the other 70% has delayed reaction to mold allergies. These are tested by antibodies called IGG.
