What Everyone Should Know About Allergies
An allergy is an abnormal reaction of the body’s immune system to substances that are typically harmless to most people. Allergens, such as dust mites, pollen, animal dander, and certain foods can trigger runny noses, itchy eyes, sneezing, wheezing and other symptoms. To determine if you have an allergy, your doctor will review your medical history and conduct tests such as skin prick tests or blood tests.
Allergy Symptoms and Causes
Allergies can be a nuisance, but they can also be dangerous if not treated properly. Understanding the symptoms and causes of allergies is the first step in effectively managing them.

Anaphylaxis causes rapid onset of serious symptoms, including hives, throat tightness, swelling, shortness of breath, dizziness, and shock. Seek immediate medical attention to prevent serious complications from severe allergy reactions.
Angiodema’s allergic reactions can be managed using antihistamines, corticosteroids, avoiding triggers, balanced diet, physical activity, and most importantly, the individual’s treatment plan assessed by an allergy doctor.
Drug allergies cause itchy skin or hives, indicating a reaction to certain medications. An allergy doctor identifies triggers, prevents reactions, and confirms the diagnosis by testing, allowing to determine which medications to avoid.
Food allergies cause itching, hives, rashes, swelling, and breathing difficulties in people. Identifying and avoiding the allergen is essential to prevent future reactions. An allergy doctor can diagnose specific allergens and manage symptoms with a personalized plan.
Penicillin allergies cause reactions to bacteria, fungi, and environmental triggers, which can be diagnosed by an allergy doctor through testing. Avoiding triggers and medication can prevent further reactions.
During allergy season, people experience symptoms when pollen levels are high. Limiting exposure to allergens and staying informed of local pollen counts are crucial to avoid symptoms. An allergy doctor can recommend personalized treatment plans to manage seasonal allergies.
Latex allergies can benefit from regular allergy shots or immunotherapy to reduce reactions by desensitizing the body with small injections of the allergen. Consult an allergy doctor for guidance on this treatment option.
Environmental mold allergies cause congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes, and skin rashes. An allergy doctor identifies the allergen and reduces exposure to minimize symptoms. Testing confirms diagnosis and leads to an individualized treatment plan.

Allergic asthma causes recurrent attacks with symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Evaluation by an allergy doctor can advise on management and allergy testing may be recommended for confirmation and avoidance of triggers.
Allergic contact dermatitis is an inflammatory skin reaction caused by allergen contact. Symptoms include itchy, red, and swollen skin. An allergy doctor provides diagnosis and personalized treatment for symptom alleviation.
Allergy testing is an important tool for diagnosing the cause of allergic symptoms. It helps to identify the specific allergen that triggers the reaction which then allows medical care providers to provide the most effective treatment plan.
Allergy testing may involve skin prick tests, blood tests or both and can help determine if a severe reaction may occur from exposure to a particular allergen.
Patient Reviews and Ratings
Real People, Real Results
Allergies can be managed with antihistamines, decongestants, nasal corticosteroids, eye drops, and asthma inhalers. These medications target different allergy symptoms such as inflammation, congestion, itchy eyes, and respiratory allergies.
Immunotherapy, such as allergy shots, tablets, and drops, reduces the body’s reaction to allergens. Regular allergen injections build up tolerance over time, while antigen tablets or drops expose the body to small amounts of allergens for oral desensitization. Beneficial for those with severe allergies or unavoidable allergen exposure.
Saline solution clears irritants from nasal passages, while steam soothes airways. Nettle tea, honey, and probiotics have anti-inflammatory benefits. Natural remedies are a great way to reduce allergy symptoms.
