Understanding Common Allergy Symptoms

While many allergic reactions can be mild, others can be life-threatening and may need emergency care to be treated properly. If you are experiencing severe symptoms like shortness of breath, reduced blood pressure, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, or another extreme bodily reaction, you should seek emergency allergy treatment as quickly as possible by calling 911 or getting to a nearby hospital.
What Causes Allergies?
During an allergic reaction, the body’s immune system attempts to fight off the irritant (allergen) that is mistakenly identified as harmful—thus causing the symptoms of the reaction. Allergies and allergic reactions are commonly brought on by exposure to irritants like dust mites, insects stings, latex, mold, pet dander, or even something as innocuous as pollen. Some people may also be allergic to certain foods or food groups, as well as some medications like penicillin.
