What are your symptoms or complaints? Is it itching on the skin, sneezing, nasal congestion, watery eyes, shortness of breath, or other complaints? Allergies generally occur because the body overreacts to a trigger (hypersensitivity reaction). Actually this trigger is not dangerous, but by the body it is considered a threat so that the body will respond excessively by forming antibodies, namely IgE. IgE will trigger the release of histamine which causes allergy symptoms.
Allergy symptoms can vary, such as hives, rashes / lesions on the skin that feel itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, diarrhea, and sometimes a more severe allergic reaction such as shortness of breath. and decreased consciousness. There are also many triggers for allergies such as cold weather, food, pollen, insect bites, dust, mites, animal hair, certain chemicals, and drugs.
To find out what triggers allergies, patients are advised to pay attention whenever allergies arise. If a food allergy is suspected, a food elimination test may be performed. If you want to be sure, patients can consult a doctor so they can do allergy tests and blood tests. Allergy management in general is to avoid the trigger factors. If allergies start to cause symptoms, antihistamines can be given. In certain cases, doctors can add corticosteroids, decongestants, calamine lotion according to the patient's condition. If the allergic reaction is more severe until an anaphylactic reaction occurs, the doctor can give an injection of epinephrine and adrenaline.
In the meantime you can do the following tips:
Recognize trigger factors and avoid these trigger factors
Get used to a healthy lifestyle: adequate rest, regular exercise, avoid stress, eat healthy and nutritious foods
If it is triggered by cold weather, you should avoid cold food and drinks and make the room temperature comfortable
Avoid wearing perfume that attracts insects
If you are allergic to animal hair, it is better to avoid keeping animals in the house
If you often experience recurrent allergies, I suggest that you check with your doctor directly so that further tests can be done to confirm the trigger of the allergy and so that you can be given proper treatment.
