Centre for Allergy Cure

An allergy is an abnormal immune response to a substance that is typically harmless to most people. This substance, known as an allergen, triggers an immune reaction in individuals who are allergic to it. Common allergens include pollen, dust mites, pet dander, certain foods, insect venom, and certain medications.

When an allergic person comes into contact with an allergen, their immune system produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies bind to cells in the body, such as mast cells and basophils. Upon subsequent exposure to the allergen, these cells release chemicals, such as histamine, which cause allergic symptoms.

Allergic symptoms can vary depending on the individual and the allergen involved. They can range from mild symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and hives, to more severe reactions like difficulty breathing, swelling, and anaphylaxis, which is a life-threatening allergic reaction.

Diagnosing allergies involves a thorough medical history, physical examination, and sometimes specific allergy testing, such as skin prick tests or blood tests for specific IgE antibodies.
