About Allergy Treatments at SFENTA 

When an allergen enters the body, our immune system instantly identifies it, which triggers a series of responses. These reactions frequently involve: 

  • Tissue destruction
  • Blood vessel enlargement

Production of numerous inflammatory materials, including histamine, that causes familiar allergy signs such as: 

    • Watery eyes
    • Sneezing
    • Headaches
    • Scratchy throat 
    • Hives

    Other unusual symptoms include balance disturbances, skin irritation, and respiratory difficulties.
