Group B, comprising of 496 patients, both male and female, were given subcutaneous injections of allergens and histamines, anti- histamines, adrenocortical hormones, herbal medicine, nose drops, block therapy and freezing therapy. Foot reflexology given in Group A was more effective than the treatment given in Group B without any relapses for 2 years.
