In the last fifty years there have been incredible advancements in healthcare, in both diagnosis and treatment. There has also, however, been a rise in conditions such as obesity, heart disease and in the number of people suffering with allergies. An allergy is a condition in which the body reacts to certain chemicals, environmental substances or food. These triggers are called allergens. Some of the most common are house dust mites, pollen, pets and mould. Other allergens include fruit, nuts and latex.

Immune Response

When someone who suffers with an allergy comes into contact with the allergen, which they are unable to tolerate, their body produces antibodies to fight it off, as if it were an infection. This results in an allergic reaction. The symptoms of an allergic reaction can be severe and debilitating, sometimes even life threatening.

Common Allergies

Disorders, which are caused by allergic reactions, include asthma and hay fever and the skin condition eczema. Symptoms caused by these allergies can include difficulty breathing, wheezing, sneezing, coughing, runny nose and skin rashes.
