NiE - Health Hub Allergies

Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, a rash, difficulty breathing. Is it an allergic reaction? Possibly.Allergies are abnormal reactions to things that are usually harmless to most people. When a person is allergic to a substance and encounters the trigger, the immune system reacts in an attempt to protect the body by releasing chemicals into the bloodstream, causing allergy symptoms. Allergic reactions can be mild, like a runny nose, or they can be severe, like anaphylaxis which signs include difficulty breathing and/or swallowing, swelling of the lips, tongue and throat or other parts of the body, and dizziness or loss of consciousness. Suffering from an allergy can have a huge impact on people's everyday lives, ranging from being a mild annoyance to a debilitating condition for some.
