Email Mama Allergies What are Allergies? An allergy is a hypersensitivity to a foreign substance that is usually harmless but produces a violent reaction in the allergy sufferer. Allergies are generally the body's effort to eliminate something it considers unsuitable. There are different types of allergies. Some of the most common types are: Nasal allergies , and Chronic Allergies . Nasal allergies refer to the interaction of allergens with cells within the lining of the nose. Chronic Allergies are a bit more serious than nasal allergies. An individual with chronic allergies may have nasal allergies and will also start to be affected by non allergic stimuli. These can include dry air, cold air, smoke, and particles in the air. The individual with chronic allergies can follow the same steps to prevent allergies that a person with nasal allergies can. The main difference is knowing which other allergies affect them. Common allergens include pollens, dust, dust mites, mold spores, and animal dander.

    Allergies are the result of a hypersensitive immune system. Get health tips with staying healthy pictures
    A properly functioning immune system is a well-trained and disciplined biological warfare unit for the body. The immune system is really quite amazing. It is able to identify and destroy many foreign invaders. The immune system can also identify cells that are infected internally with viruses, as well as many cells that are on their way to becoming tumors. It does all of this work so the body remains healthy. As amazing as the immune system is, it sometimes makes mistakes. Allergies are the result of a hypersensitive immune system. The allergic immune system misidentifies an otherwise innocuous substance as harmful, and then attacks the substance with a ferocity far greater than required. The problems this attack can cause range from mildly inconvenient and uncomfortable to the total failure of the organism the immune system is supposed to be protecting. Learn More

    What are Seasonal Allergies?
    A seasonal allergy is an allergic reaction to a trigger that is typically only present for part of a year, such as spring or fall. This type of allergy refers to a pollen allergy, such as trees, weeds and grasses. Perennial allergies, on the other hand, are usually present year-round, and include allergens such as pet dander and house dust mite. Molds can be a seasonal or perennial allergy trigger.
    What are Pollens?
    allergic reaction . Symptoms may include allergic rhinitis (hay fever) allergic conjunctivitis (eye allergies) and allergic asthma Pollens that are spread by the wind are usually the main cause of seasonal allergies, while pollens that rely on insects (such as the honeybee) to be carried to other plants do not. Most plants with bright, vibrant flowers (such as roses) are insect pollinated and do not generally cause seasonal allergies since the pollen is not usually present in the air.

    *Special Note* Allergy is probably the most complicated topic in the Quick Care Self-Care Advisory. Below is a very general overview of only the simplest, most common allergy problems and treatments. Quick Care strongly advises that you consult a physician if you're not sure whether your symptoms are allergic, or if non-prescription treatment doesn't work well. Many more prescription options exist beyond the products recommended here. Allergies are simply your body's immune system making a big deal out of nothing. A harmless substance called an allergen (like pollen or mold) comes into contact with immune cells in your skin (external skin, or membrane skin covering the eyes, inner nose and sinuses, throat, or lungs). When the allergen touches these special immune cells (called mast cells), those cells see the harmless particle as a dangerous foreign invader. Mast cells then release damaging chemicals like histamine to "kill" the invader. Unfortunately, this just causes you harm, and doesn't hurt the pollen or mold in the least.
    When histamine is released it causes swelling, itching, and mucus production. Within minutes these cause allergy symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, cough (or wheeze in asthma) and itching of the nose, eyes, and throat. Some chemicals released by the mast cells attract other immune cells. These other cells also release damaging substances, which continue the allergic symptoms for hours or days.

    30. Allergies
    So far, the most effective preventive for IgEmediated allergies is to inject the patient with gradually-increasing doses of the allergen itself.
    Index to this page Immunologists, as well as the general public, use the term allergy in several different ways. I shall define it thus: An allergy is a harmful immune response elicited by an antigen that is not itself intrinsically harmful. Examples:
    • The windblown pollen released by orchard grass has no effect on me but produces a violent attack of hay fever (known to physicians as allergic rhinitis ) in my wife.
    • She, on the other hand, can safely handle the leaves of poison ivy while if I do so, I break out in a massive skin rash a day or two later.
    Antigens that trigger allergies are often called allergens
    Four different immune mechanisms can result in allergic responses.
    1. Immediate Hypersensitivities.
    These occur quickly after exposure to the allergen. They are usually mediated by antibodies of the IgE class. Examples: Go to discussion

    The Progression of Allergies in Children
    Allergies present in different ways in different age groups. In infants and young children, allergic disease occurs as atopic dermatitis (eczema) or as food allergies Atopic is a term that physicians use to mean that someone is allergic to various things (foods, environmental triggers such as pollens, molds and pet dander, for example).
    Atopic Dermatitis
    Typically this is the earliest manifestation of allergies, is seen in 10 to 20 percent of all children, and frequently seen during infancy. Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is characterized by itching, with rash formation at the sites of scratching. The rash is typically red and dry, may have small blisters, and can flake and ooze over time. In infants and very young children, this rash involves the face (especially the cheeks), chest and trunk, back of the scalp and may involve the arms and legs. This distribution reflects where the child is able to scratch, and therefore usually spares the diaper area. The location of the rash changes in older children to classically involve the skin in front of the elbows and behind the knees. Food and environmental allergies have been shown to worsen atopic dermatitis.

    zSB(3,3) Allergies are common in children, and fortunately, there are many good treatments that can help you control your child's allergy symptoms Although parents usually try over-the-counter allergy medicines, their frequent use should usually be avoided, because they are sedating and can make your child sleepy. Claritin or Alavert is an exception, as it is OTC and non-sedating. Prescription allergy medications for older kids are the same as those that are used for adults, including Allegra, Clarinex, and Zyrtec. In addition, you can use steroid nasal sprays in most older kids with allergies, including Flonase, Rhinocort Aqua, Nasonex, Nasacort AQ, and Veramyst.
