What is Allergy?
The immune system of each and every human individual is unique. Allergic reactions or simply Allergy occurs when there is a disorder of this immune system. This is caused by certain substances in the environment around us known as “Allergens”. Though these particular substances are inherently harmless in nature, it is the reaction of our immune system to the presence of allergens that causes Allergy. Hypersensitivity has four different forms out of which Allergy is one and it is also referred to as Type-I Hypersensitivity.
What Happens During An Allergic Reaction?
When these Allergens come into contact with human body, the immune system generates or activates excessive amounts of White Blood Cells. These particular White Blood Cells, also known as Mast Cells along with Basophils characterized by certain anti-body called IgE in excessive amounts cause the occurrence of Allergic reactions. Let us see the different symptoms of these reactions.
- Most commonly observed symptoms in different organs are
- Basic Symptoms
- High Fever, Severe cold, cough, running nose, sneezing, sinuses
- Skin: Eczema, severe itching, swelling, rashes, and reddening of the skin
- Eyes: Reddening of the eyes, itching, and conjunctivitis
- Nose and Breathing: Swelling of the nasal mucosa, asthma, difficulty in breathing
- Ear: Hearing impairment including pain in certain cases
- Indigestion:Vomiting, Diarrhea, Constipation, Stomach Ache
Out of the above symptoms, Hay Fever, Running Nose, and Itchiness are known to be observed amongst most patients. Though Allergies are not commonly known to be fatal, in some cases severe allergic reactions due to environmental factors or reaction to medication may lead to death.
There are basically two major factors for the occurrence of Allergic reactions in any individual.
- Genetic Factors
- Environmental Factor
Until recent past, most cases of allergies are known to be due to hereditary. But the last few years have seen an increase in the number of cases of allergies due to environmental factors such as pollution, presence of excessive allergens, dietary habits and changes of the individuals, and also exposure to certain infectious or contagious diseases in the early years of the childhood. Older people also have higher vulnerability to be affected by Allergies due to the weakening of the immune system.
