Infographic: 8 strange allergy treatments from around the world

Weird allergic reactions can strike at any time. These solutions can help heal your body—well, some of them, anyway.

There are many do-it-yourself ways to manage reactions to everyday living.

This infographic offers popular alternatives to traditional treatments. Of course, some of the “remedies” are unproven or disproven.

For instance:

  • Eating an onion can reduce the inflammation factor that is common with allergic outbreaks. This one’s valid, because of the anti-inflammatory effects of quercetin.

  • Using roll-on deodorants are believed to reduce the pain from bug bites. It’s unproven, according to the infographic, but at least it will leave you smelling sweet. Of course, some people are allergic (or at least have skin that’s highly sensitive) to deodorants.

Take a look.
