Types Of Allergies And Treatment Options
Types of Allergies
Medication will ease your symptoms, but you may still have a reaction when you’re around an allergen. Kids, on the other hand, sometimes outgrow allergies, particularly with food. You might try a type of treatment called immunotherapy. You’ll get a bit of what you’re allergic to in the form of shots, oral tablets, or drops. It isn’t a cure, but it can weaken your reaction.
Food allergies or food intolerance affect nearly everyone at some point. People often have an unpleasant reaction to something they ate and wonder if they have a food allergy. One out of three people either say that they have a food allergy or that they modify the family diet because a family member is suspected of having a food allergy. But only about 5% of children have clinically proven allergic reactions to foods. In teens and adults, food allergies occur in about 4% of the total population.
Symptoms of a skin allergy include:
Red, bumpy, scaly, itchy or swollen skin – any of these signs may mean you have a skin allergy. Skin allergies are painful and unpleasant, but there are things you can do to treat and prevent an allergic skin reaction. The most common allergic skin conditions are: eczema, hives and angioedema, and allergic contact dermatitis. It is important to track when the allergy starts and what were you doing when it started. Also with today’s technology you can take a daily picture of your skin to compare allergy progress.
Airborne allergies can be trigger by microscopic particles that travel thru the air and absorbe by our bodies. Air pollution such smoke or mold spores can really make a impact not just for the regular known allergy surfer but for every one that is exposed to them. The respiratory system will react those particles and start fighting them making the air track sand the lung tissue to swallow and obstruct air and this combination can be life treating. Allergic reaction to a pollutant can also cause Asthma or asthma symptoms and some times the continue exposure can slowly develop into chronic respiratory illnesses.
