Allergies: A major health problem

Among various ailments 'allergies' are the ones that claim millions of victims throughout the world. In US alone it affects 45 million people annually. While many ailments can be accounted for external organisms like microbes// or due to the deficiency of essential nutritive component like Vitamins, allergies are triggered as a specific reaction to a normally harmless substance, one that does not bother other people.

In other words allergies are in sharp contrast with the killer disease AIDS, Allergy symptoms appear on account of too much immunity while in AIDS there will be too little immunity to prevent the disease. The substance that triggers this syndrome is known as allergens. Allergens are classified as “indoor allergens” and “outdoor allergens” Dust mites, animal dander and similar other substances which we come across under carpets and pillows at our home constitute the former, while billions of particles of pollen and other such similar substances present in gardens constitute the latter.

Allergic reaction may also be due to insect bites. Though food allergies are extremely unlikely, eatables like chocolate, egg and fish may be harmful for those who are prone to food allergies. The skin and gastro-intestinal tract are the most common sites where symptoms manifest. Gastro-intestinal symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain and swelling of throat while on the skin it would be itching, redness and even burning sensation.

Allergy bears different names depending on the site of occurrence on our body. When allergy explosions occur in the nose and sinuses it is known as hay fever or allergic “rhinitis”. When it occurs in lungs we call it as asthma. In the event of symptoms surfacing on the skin it is described as “hives”. When it attacks the whole body violently it is known as “anaphylaxis” and in this case victims have to be rushed to the hospital at the earliest.
