Why Does A Cold Allergy Reappear When You Grow Up?
Excuse me doctor, when I was in first grade until first grade I had experienced a cold allergy and I thought I was cured and now I am already in college, but some time ago I was invited by my friend to eat seafood and after eating my body itched and bumped, even though I was previously not allergic towards seafood. After that incident, somehow my cold allergy reappeared, every night or in a cold state, certain parts of my body itchy and appear bumpy. Are allergies really able to return? Then how come from the previous one I’m not allergic to seafood so allergic to seafood?
Allergy is a condition of the body that overreacts to something that is actually not dangerous but is considered dangerous by the body. Allergy triggers can vary, such as cold temperatures, certain foods, drugs, dust, pollen, animal hair, and other materials that come into contact with the skin directly.
Allergic reactions can also vary such as itching, bumps, red rashes or lesions, sneezing, coughing, runny nose, swelling of the lips and eyes to swelling throughout the body, digestive disorders, to more severe complaints such as shortness of breath and decreased awareness that requires treatment soon.
This allergic reaction does not always appear since childhood or first exposed. Allergies can only appear after an adult. When first exposed, the body will recognize allergens but do not appear allergic reactions, this process is called sensitization. The stage of sensitization can not be ascertained the duration, can only be 1 or 2x exposure, it can also be until new years cause allergic reactions, which is called reaction type hypersensitivity 4. Sometimes allergies can also improve for some time and relapse again when exposed to the same trigger.
To deal with allergies, your doctor can give antihistamines and corticosteroids if necessary, you can use calamin lotion as a topical medication / topical to help reduce itching. But the most important thing is to pay attention to and recognize the triggers of allergies and to avoid these triggers as much as possible. Also try to exercise more regularly, get enough rest, and avoid stress to minimize allergies.
If you experience a severe allergic reaction or allergy appears very often, you should consult further with a dermatologist so you can be sure the trigger and given further treatment that is more leverage.
Hope it helps you,
