Allergy Causes

When an “invader” (allergens) enters your system that your body views as harmful, this may cause your body’s defense system to release histamines to protect your body. These histamines cause your allergy symptoms.

There are several different types of allergies that people suffer from. Substances that cause these reactions are called allergens which can be found in:

  • Medication
  • Food
  • Insect bites
  • Latex
  • Mould
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen

Allergy Symptoms

Most allergy symptoms are generally mild though and can be easily treated with OTC and prescription medication.

  • Rash or hives
  • Itchiness
  • Watery/red eyes
  • Hay fever
  • Runny nose
  •  Difficulty breathing

A severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, is less common, yet life-threatening emergency in which swelling in the throat prevents breathing.
