One of the marvels of the human body is that it can defend itself against harmful invaders like viruses or bacteria. But sometimes the defenses are too aggressive, and harmless substances such as dust, mold and pollen are mistakenly identified as dangerous. The immune system then rallies its defenses, launching a host of complex chemical weapons to attack and destroy the supposed enemy. In the process, some unpleasant, and in extreme cases, life-threatening symptoms may be experienced by the allergy-prone individual.
There are hundreds of ordinary substances that can trigger allergic reactions. The most common are plant pollens, molds, household dust (dust mites), animal dander, foods, medicines, feathers, and stings from insects. An allergic reaction can occur anywhere in the body, but usually appears in the skin, eyes, lining of the stomach, nose, sinuses, throat, and lungs – places where special immune system cells are stationed to fight off invaders.
Symptoms vary and may include swelling, rash, itching and shortness of breath. Drug allergies include hives, rash, and fever. Food allergies include digestive problems, hives, or swollen airways, which can be life threatening. Skin allergies include a red rash and itching. Seasonal allergies include sneezing and runny nose, and may include wheezing and difficulty breathing.
