Allergy & Allergens

Allergies are caused by abnormalities in a person’s immune system that causes it to respond to otherwise harmless compounds as if they are foreign and harmful substances. This response causes inflammation and swelling of specific cells in the body, leading to congested sinuses, hives, eczema, asthmatic attacks, and other allergic symptoms including fatigue and pain.

Allergen is a broad term used to describe compounds in dust, pollen, mold, animals, and food that can interact with the cells of peoples’ immune system and cause an allergic response. Because allergens come from different sources, not all allergens are the same. This partly explains why people with allergies are not necessarily allergic to everything and why different people can be allergic to different things.

"Common offending allergens include pollen, dust, food, insect stings, animal proteins, mold, medication and chemicals."
