Allergy happens when your immune system reacts to something thatís usually harmless. Those triggers, which are called "allergens," can include pollen, mold, and animal dander, certain foods, or things that irritate your skin. It starts when you come into contact with a trigger that you inhale, swallow, or get on your skin. In response, your body starts to make a protein called IgE, which grabs onto the allergen. Then histamine and other chemicals get released into the blood. That causes the symptoms you notice. This is the reason you are prescribed Anti-Histamines as medications for allergy.

Anyone can get them, at any age. You could develop them as a child, or you might not have any symptoms until youíre an adult. Allergies run in families. If your parents have allergies, you probably will, too. Your immune system has an important job which is to defend your body from invaders such as bacteria and viruses that mean you harm. But when it makes war on substances it should not, that is an allergy.

Symptoms & Treatments

The symptoms of allergic reactions can vary from person to person from mild to moderate to severe. Some of the most common reasons for or causes of allergic reactions may include:

Animal or pet hairs/smell


Foods like prawn, egg, peanuts

Dust mites

Plants and pollens

The most severe reaction to allergy is called anaphylaxis. It’s a serious situation and can put your body into shock. Food, medications, insect bites, or latex are the most likely causes. Antihistamines and decongestants can help treat certain symptoms, as can nasal sprays.If you have an allergic-type asthma, your doctor might also prescribe an inhaler to ease attacks. Another treatment for allergy is allergy shots. This type of treatment is called immunotherapy, and it can be effective for hay fever and allergic asthma.
