a. Overview

An allergy is a reaction of our immune system to certain foreign substances that do not bother most other people. The substance, called an allergen, is usually harmless. People with allergies are often sensitive to more than one thing. Common substances that cause allergic reactions include: pollen, dust, pet hair, food, and insect stings. At least one out of every five people in the U.S. suffers from allergies. During an allergic reaction, a person is first exposed to an allergen through inhalation, consumption, or skin contact. In the reaction itself, the body begins to produce a specific type of antibody called IgE to bind the allergen. The antibodies then form a type of white blood cell called a mast cell that can be found in the airways, the intestines, and other locations in the body. The presence of mast cells makes those areas more susceptible to allergen exposure. The allergens bind to the IgE, which is attached to the mast cell. This in turn leads to the mast cell releasing a variety of chemicals into the blood, the main chemical being histamine which causes most of the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

b. Potential Allergens

  • Environmental: pollen, dust, insect stings, pet hair, mold
  • Manufactured: perfume, cosmetics, latex
  • Food: nuts, seafood, gluten, dairy
  • Drug: penicillin, tetracycline, local anesthetics

c. Causes of Allergies

Allergies occur when your own immune system mistakes innocuous substances as a serious threat and attacks them. An individual’s risk of developing an allergy begins in the genes. Specific allergies are not inherited directly; rather, one inherits a tendency towards having allergies. One allergic parent leads to a 33% chance the child will be allergic to the same substance, while the child of two allergic parents has a 70% chance of developing allergies. Moreover, the circumstances have to be exactly right for a potential allergen to trigger an allergic reaction. A lot about what causes allergies to develop still remains a mystery, but it seems that your current health may have an impact. For instance, by coming into contact with an allergen when your body is weak, you are more likely to develop an allergy to it.

d. Signs and Symptoms of Allergic Reactions

Common symptoms of inhalation or skin allergic reactions include:
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, runny nose
  • Rashes
  • Feeling tired or ill
  • Hives

Food allergies can cause stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea, while insect stings can cause local swelling, redness, and pain. Depending on the severity of an allergic reaction, you may feel slightly off, ill like during a cold or flu, or extremely uncomfortable and potentially incapacitated.

Most symptoms go away shortly after exposure is eliminated. However, in the most severe allergic reactions, called anaphylaxis, allergens cause a whole-body reaction. This includes tightening of the throat, tingling in extremities, hives and itching all over, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Symptoms do not diminish but rather progress rapidly. Anaphylaxis is life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention.

e. Allergy Diagnoses and Tests

A diagnosis for allergies begins at the doctor’s office. However, by utilizing methods such as keeping a food diary and checking to see if you have allergy symptoms, you may determine certain allergies for yourself. An elimination diet involving removing certain foods or ingredient from consumption may also help.

Tests such as the allergy skin test also exist to help identify the substances that are causing allergy reactions. Finally, blood tests are also a useful tool for analyzing which substances could be allergens for you. Any combination of these diagnoses may be effective.

f. Treatments for Allergic Reactions

Depending on the severity of the allergic reactions, there are different treatments available. For instance, if allergies cause your nose to become runny or stuffy, anticholinergic or steroid nasal sprays may be helpful. If you are allergic to mold or dust, a home dehumidifier could do the trick in treating your allergies. There is an assortment of over the counter and prescription allergy medications available. Most of these contain antihistamines, which is the first line of defense. Antihistamines reduce or block histamines so they stop allergy symptoms. However, they cannot relieve every symptom. Other possible treatments include the relatively recently discovered leukotriene inhibitors, which prevents nasal passages from swelling and making mucus. Mast cell inhibitors are also used occasionally. These drugs prevent the release of histamine and other chemicals allergic symptoms from mast cells. However, mast cell inhibitors also have strong side effects, and the timing must be right for them to be effective. In addition, various natural allergy remedies exist, including a range of herbal and vegetable extracts such as butterbur, quercetin, stinging nettle, and Echinacea.
