Whether related to food, animals, medications, or the outdoors, about 1 in 5 people deal with some kind of allergy.

Allergies can place significant constraints on your life, but because they’re relatively common, there is fortunately always a community that you can turn to for tips, information, or simply some support for your specific allergy. We’ve rounded up some of the most influential allergy blogs on the web, and their writers range from well-known nonprofits to moms trying to make a difference.
