Allergies come in many forms, affecting all sorts of people – about one in every five people suffers from a seasonal or environmental allergy. While causes and reactions vary greatly case to case, allergies involve the activation of immune responses by certain triggers. These immune responses are felt as symptoms of allergy, ranging in severity from mildly irritating to potentially life-threatening. Allergic responses are triggered by allergens, which are ambient small particles and residues that are found in the environment. Allergens can be just as diverse as the terrible symptoms they cause, and change by the season or environment you are in. Allergies can change over time, developing and diminishing on their own accord, too. Thankfully, there are many effective options for treating allergy and allergy symptoms.
