An allergic reaction occurs when your body overreacts to a substance that enters the body because it is considered dangerous, but it really isn't. This allergen can trigger an allergic reaction because it is inhaled into the airways (eg dust mites, pollen), direct contact (eg cold, soap, latex), or also swallowed into the digestive tract (for example seafood, eggs, nuts). The allergic symptoms that arise can range from mild (such as itching, bumps, redness), to severe (such as swelling, tightness, dizziness, vomiting, diarrhea, palpitations, weak pulse, cold sweat, and so on).
The onset of allergic reactions can vary from person to person, can be from childhood, can also appear as an adult. Not yet known the exact cause of this difference in onset of allergies. However, endurance, genetic, and environmental conditions are thought to strongly influence this.
In addition to allergies, swelling, itching, and redness of the skin that you experience may also arise due to other triggers, for example cholinergic urticaria, immune disorders, insect bites, skin infections, side effects of drugs, liver disorders, disorders of the thyroid gland, kidney disorders, pressure severe mental illness, xerosis, and so on.
In order to be handled properly, you need to check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given the best treatment. If it is true that the allergen triggers your complaint, then identifying the type of allergen and avoiding the allergen is the best solution to prevent recurring and recurring complaints. In more severe cases, your doctor may also give you several types of drugs, such as anti-allergic, anti-itch, anti-inflammatory, and so on. Not only that, doctors can also recommend that you undergo an allergy test, laboratory tests, as well as immunotherapy. Especially for food allergies, doctors can also coordinate with specialists in internal medicine to determine the best management.
Hope this helps ...
