Causes of Allergy, Types of Allergies and Treatment of Allergies

Millions of Americans suffer from allergies. Many people who suffer from allergies to everything, such as environmental allergens, odors, smoke, food, and cigarette smoke are a number of factors. Allergies, though not being a disease, can greatly affect your health for weeks.

Allergies are widespread and affect about one in four populations in the UK at a time in their lives. According to a study each year the number increases by about 5% with as many as half of all affected children.

Allergy is basically a Greek term meaning "other work". The term allergy is used to describe the response, by the body, to a substance, which is not always dangerous itself, but produces an immune response and reaction that causes symptoms and disease in people who have a tendency, cause discomfort, or a lot of misery.

This occurs when the body's immune system overreacts to substances that are usually harmless. This is a popular form of immune response that creates a body irritation process through itching. Allergies are a common disorder that virtually affects more than 50% of the world's total population in one way or another.

With allergies, the immune system reacts to a substance that should not react to it, and the reaction is often exaggerated. Allergies often lead to the formation of certain chronic diseases. Allergies can be caused due to weather, dust, food, pollution, animals, flowers, plants etc. and this list is quite endless.

Objects that contain substances that generally cause allergies are household dust, animal hair, household chemicals, chlorine, microorganisms, pollen, nuts, citrus fruits, and seafood. Also bacteria and parasites can cause strong and inappropriate immune reactions.

Allergic reactions are caused by substances in the environment known as allergens. Almost everything can become an allergen for someone. Allergens contain proteins, which are constituents of the food we eat. Actually it is an organic compound, which contains nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen, which is an important part of living organisms.

Allergies vary according to the compounds that cause immunological reactions. An allergic condition also often implies a reaction to a combination of several substances. Periodic allergic conditions can be better or worse according to the concentration of allergens in the environment. A typical example is pollen allergy with a peak in the season of pollinating grass or trees.

Someone who is allergic often gets symptoms from several tissues in the body, but the symptoms are often the most prominent in one part of the body and provide very specific symptoms in that place. Broadly speaking, there are only three types of allergies, which affect us in general. This includes:

Food allergy
Food allergies can be mild, such as a slight tingling in the mouth, but for some people it may be severe, for example causing difficulty breathing. Food allergies occur when a person's immune system mistakenly diagnoses that something that people eat is harmful to the body.

The most common foods that cause allergies are wheat, soybeans, peanuts, milk, eggs, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish. Symptoms of food allergies include swelling in the throat or other parts of the body, abdominal pain, eczema, dizziness, diarrhea or vomiting.

Allergic contact
This type of allergy is caused by contact with chemicals and smoke, insect bites, allergic contact eczema, skin etc. Contact allergy symptoms include redness, itching, deep blisters, scaly patches and crying skin.

Inhalant allergy
Inhalant allergies, also known as atopies are caused by allergic reactions to substances in the environment including pets, dust mites, outside air pollutants such as pollen are the main allergens. Formaldehydes, molds, work allergies etc. fall into this category. Inhalant allergy symptoms include inflammation, phlegm secretion and contraction of the respiratory system so that breathing is not enough.

Prevention works better than cure in terms of allergies. But when allergies become very acute, proper care must be given to overcome them. Allergies require proper medical care and diagnosis. But most importantly, allergies caused by dust and pollution can be treated by avoiding them. 

Basically it is recommended to stay away from things that produce allergies Before giving basic treatment to allergic patients, the root causes of allergies must be properly diagnosed. For this purpose, proper skin tests and blood tests must be carried out.

Through this process the basic causes of allergies can be sorted out and based on that allergy appropriate treatment can be processed. There are many therapies that have been practiced to treat allergies.

Certain alternative medicines such as herbs, ayurvedic medicines, homeopathy and Chinese medicines are very helpful in the treatment of various types of allergies. In addition, there are also certain aromatic processes that also work miraculously in the process of overcoming allergies.
