How do allergies work?

When an allergen is reintroduced to the body, it triggers a rapid response from the immune system that involves tissue damage, widening of blood vessels, and increased output of inflammatory substances, including histamine. This results in the following: 

  • Sneezing
  • Congestion
  • Headaches
  • Watery eyes 
  • Skin irritations such as hives or eczema 
  • Serious respiratory issues like asthma
  • This demonstrates just how powerful allergies can be.
