I jokingly compare allergies to a caring grandmother. She is afraid that the child will get sick and begins to “wrap” him in 100 clothes. But what it leads to is not hard to guess.

Such a metamorphosis was not noticed by anyone around, except the scientist’s brother. Then Dalton began to realize that his vision was not in order and this phenomenon was hereditary.
