Atopy is a pretty big issue, especially if you are a girl. Well, don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean that it’s not a big deal for guys too…it’s just a bigger deal for girls because… well, you know… we’ve all been brain washed into believing fair complexion is an enormous plus in life… just think about Snow White!
