Get help!: It's probably not the books themselves, but the dust they carry. House dust is typically a combination of dust mites, pet dander (if pets are in the home), and old skin cells. Allergy skin testing can determine your allergies, and medications like antihistamines or nasal sprays can really make you more comfortable as well.
