How to Prevent Environmental Allergies

Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Aug 31, 2021 11:04:07 AM

Environmental allergies occur when the body’s immune system has a reaction to a substance or element in the environment that it perceives as toxic or foreign. When an allergic reaction is triggered, the body releases chemicals called histamines and leukotrienes. Some common symptoms of environmental allergies include runny nose, sneezing, coughing, watery or irritated eyes, sore throat, hives, sinus pain, and fatigue.

When illness strikes, the body's immune system attacks to wade off the disease-causing bacteria and viruses. The same thing happens when allergies attack the body. The immune system fights away substances that are harmless to your body, which can include viruses, bacteria, or allergens. When your antibodies clash with the allergens, it results in an allergic reaction.

Allergic reactions vary in severity from mild to anaphylaxis, a dangerous, life-threatening reaction. Most of the allergies have no cure, however, treatment helps to mitigate the effects of allergic reactions or reduce the symptoms of allergies.
