We have allergens all around us, and most of us experience allergic reactions – some more so than others. Our allergic reaction depends on how our immune system responds to the allergens.
Allergy symptoms depend on the allergen that's causing the reaction, and can range from mild to severe. Symptoms include:
A food allergy can cause:
Allergens could be any foreign substance and your immune system's reaction the foreign substance. Could be seasonal allergens like pollen, bee stings, or pet dander. It could also be a reaction to something you ate.
While it's difficult to prevent all allergies, you could take some precautions. For example during allergy season try and stay indoors when pollen is high. Track your activities and food you eat to try and narrow down what you're allergic to.
