Allergies

Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance such as pollen, bee venom or pet dander.

Your immune system produces substances known as antibodies. When you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn't. When you come into contact with the allergen, your immune system's reaction can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system.

The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from minor irritation to anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening emergency. While most allergies can't be cured, treatments can help relieve your allergy symptoms.

All About Allergies

Understanding and Managing Allergies with Apotek Pharmacy.

Explore comprehensive insights into allergies, their symptoms, causes, and effective treatment options. Allergy symptoms vary, affecting airways, sinuses, skin, and digestive systems. In severe cases, allergies can trigger life-threatening reactions known as anaphylaxis.

Causes:
Allergies begin when the immune system misidentifies a harmless substance as a threat, leading to the production of antibodies. Upon re-exposure, these antibodies release immune system chemicals like histamine, causing allergy symptoms. Common triggers include airborne allergens, certain foods, insect stings, medications, and substances touched, leading to allergic skin reactions.

Treatment & Care:
Manage allergy symptoms with over-the-counter and prescription medications, including allergy shots. While there is no cure for allergies, various medications like antihistamines, decongestants, corticosteroids, and combination drugs can ease symptoms.
