Seasonal Allergies

Spring is here and so are seasonal allergies.  An allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that doesn’t necessarily bother most people.  People who have allergies are often sensitive to more than one thing.  Some things that cause allergic reactions are pollen, mold spores, pet dander, certain foods and insect stings.  Normally your immune system fights germs, but it can also put up a fight against allergies.  It is your body’s defense system.  Genes and the environment both play a role in how your body reacts to allergies.

Your immune system produces antibodies.  When you have allergies, your immune system goes to work and makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen.  When you come into contact with a particular allergen, your immune system’s reaction can inflame your skin, cause you to sneeze a lot and cause your nose to run, eyes to itch and affect your airways.

Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, and swelling.  Allergies can range from minor to severe, some requiring emergency services when needed.  Doctors use skin and blood tests to diagnose allergies.  Treatments can include medicines, allergy shots and avoiding the things that cause reactions. There are many over the counter choices today that can assist with allergy relief.  Untreated allergies can wear you down physically while your immune system is fighting for you. If over the counter medicines don’t give you any relief, it is time to see your doctor.  De Hart Plumbing Heating and Cooling, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas, Topeka Kansas and some surrounding areas.
