    Hello again!

    I am not very happy about the correctness of this sentence:

    في حال أي رد فعل حساسي إلى السلعة أو أي مكوّن منها، إسأل الطبيب أو الصيدلي

    How can I improve it?

    I think this is better..
    "في حال ظهور أي عرض من أعراض الحساسية للسلعة أو أي مكوّن منها، اسأل الطبيب أو الصيدلي"

    I agree with Linolenic, but allow me to change it a little:
    في حالة ظهور أي أعراض للحساسية من المنتَج، اسأل الطبيب أو الصيدلي
    I prefer منتج (product) to سلعة, but I can't give a rational reason for this. Maybe it feels a tad less commercial.

    Thanks a lot, friends!

    Opsss... I forgot - and how would I say "anti-allergic"? The word is not referred to a medicine, but to the product (it is supposed not to produce allergies).

    My provisional option is:

    مضاد للحساسية

    But I started thinking that the most important is to be understood, even if not litteral. So I am considering something like this:

    لا يسبب ظهور أعراض الحساسية

    But come to think of it, I am putting the owner of the brand in a contradiction through this translation, because they previously stated that in case of allergic sympthoms, ask the doctor... Ufff... I don't like these commercial brochures... How can you be good at translating something which makes no sense? :confused:

    Thanks! :)

    It's not a contradiction, I believe I've read sentences like
    "ليس من المفترض أن يسبب المنتج ظهور أعراض الحساسية، ولكن في حال ظهورها راجع الطبيب أو الصيدلي"
    on many products :)

    True. A product's brochure would state that there was no recorded cases of allergies, but in case the patient/user has some symptoms, he or she should vist the doctor.

    You'd find something like this: هذا المنتج لا يسبب الحساسية then, in the precaution, they say: في حالة ظهور أعراض حساسية، يجب استشارة الطبيب أو الصيدلي

    By the way, مضاد للحساسية can be understood as antihistamine, so you should be careful when using this.
