Do you or someone you love suffer from allergies? Some are brought on by specific seasons or by just coming into contact with a certain substance. Allergies affect an estimated 37,786,541 people in North America alone! That's a staggering amount. Many people don't completely understand what causes their allergies or what they can do to keep the reactions from recurring.
Allergies are an abnormal immune system response to things that are typically harmless. When you are allergic to something, your immune system mistakenly believes that this substance is harmful to your body.
In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system produces IgE(Immunoglobulin E) antibodies to protect against the allergen. Those antibodies then cause cells in the body to release chemicals into the bloodstream, one of which is histamine.
The histamine then attacks the eyes, nose, throat, lungs, or skin and causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Future exposure to that same allergen will trigger this antibody's response again. This means that every time you come into contact with that allergen, you'll have an allergic reaction.
