An individual with insect sting allergy should carry epinephrine at all times.Epinephrine should be administered immediately to prevent life and death situations.Insect stings can cause a severe allergic reaction affecting the entire body. This severeallergic reaction is often termed as anaphylaxis.Bees, fire ants, yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps are common insects that can causeallergic reaction. Insect sting allergy can manifest symptoms like swelling also rednessthat can last a week or two. Nausea, fatigue, and low-grade fever are also commonmanifestations of sting allergy. In rare situations, a full body allergic reaction can occur.This is a severe form of allergy called anaphylaxis.Dog Allergy FactsA lot of people think that pet allergy is cause by their pets fur. Researchers have foundthat proteins in the saliva are allergens. Proteins in furs exist as the animal tries to lickitself. Allergy-causing proteins can be found in the skin and urine. As the material thatholds it dries-up, the proteins starts to float in the air.Cats may carry more allergens as they are being more and spent more time with. Inaddition to this, cats lick more. There is an increase in the popularity of rodents ashousehold pets. Urine of the many rodents may trigger hypersensitivity to some people.Cockroach Allergy FactsCockroaches are considered among the most allergenic of household pests. Theseinsects are usually present in areas that are crowded, like the city. Feces and salivasecreted by cockroaches contain protein substances that may be mixed up with housedust.If you have cockroach allergy and you have severe asthma attacks, it is safe toconclude that there are cockroaches in your house.

  2. 2. www.allergysymptomsweb.comIf you were to count the types of molds and yeast in the fungus family, it will reach up tothousands.Single-celled organisms like yeasts have to divide in order to form clusters. Thebranching threads called hyphae are the ones that multi cellular molds grow as. Only aspecific number of mold types are recognized widely to cause mold allergies, although itcould be possible that both can probably cause allergic reactions. The fungi’s spores itsseeds are used for its reproduction. Among other mold, we could spot how differentspores are by their shape, size and color, among different types of mold.In order for millions of spores to be produced, each spore that fertilizes would give riseto new mold growth. Certain food like fungi processed cheese can aggravate somepeople’s mold allergy. Occasionally, you should avoid eating mushrooms or dried fruitsas well as yeast containing foods like soy sauce and vinegar for they produce allergysymptoms.Sulfite Allergy FactsSulfites are a group of naturally occurring sulfur-based compounds. They aresometimes added to enhance and preserve some food. An estimate of one out of ahundred people sensitive to these compounds has been given by the FDA The cause ofa sensitivity to sulfites remain unknown. Furthermore, sensitivity may develop at anyage.Sulfite reactivity in sensitive individuals ranges from mild to severe. Foods such asapples and lettuce do not contain sulfites. This is because on 1986 the FDA banned theuse of sulfites on fruits or vegetables which can be eaten raw. The FDA now requiresmanufacturers to list sulfites, if used, on their product labels. Nowadays, sulfites are notused on most fresh foods. However, a variety of cooked and processed foods may stillcontain sulfites. Sulfites are present during the production of beer and wine.Hay Fever Allergies FactsPollens and other similar substances can trigger allergic reactions called hay fever.Allergic rhinitis can take two forms. It can seasonal, which occurs during specific timesof the year. It can also be perennial, which occurs throughout the year.Non-allergic rhinitis and hay fever have similarities, but they differ on the type if reaction.Tree pollens are the major causes of hay fever during spring time. During summer,allergic reactions may be caused by grass and weed pollens. Problem-causing fungusspores and weeds can pose as health problems from late spring to autumn season.Indoor allergens may cause some allergic reactions to people with perennial hay fever.
  3. 3. www.allergysymptomsweb.comDust mites, feathers and animal dander may be found in pillows, beddings and the likes.Since bathrooms and basements are damp areas, mold, a common allergen, can befound there.Cigarette Smoke FactsToxic chemicals and irritants are present in cigarettes. Secondhand smoke also plays asignificant role in increasing the risk of allergic complications. These complications mayinclude sinusitis and bronchitis. Smoking may aggravate the condition of individuals whoare suffering from allergies.Cigarette smoke includes many toxic chemicals and irritants. A number of toxicchemicals and irritants are present in a cigarette smoke. People with cigarette smokeallergy are highly sensitive to cigarette smoke compared to others. Research studieshave proven that allergies can be aggravated by smoking.Soap Allergy FactsSome people think they itch because of the chemicals in cleaning products. Accordingto Dr. Wedner, "The chemical agents do not trigger skin reactions such as itchiness.The real cause is the additives in perfumes." "Almost every soap are being added withplant extracts like roses and edelberries to make it look fancy.The skin may react to the perfume additive and give you itchy rashes." What to do:When choosing soaps to buy, avoid soaps that have scent and additives. Do nut buysoaps that are not phthalate-free. 1. Although phthalates are known to help improvetexture, they are also known to cause allergic reactions. Products that contain suchchemical may have “diethyl phthalate” on the label. Tide, Ivory, and Dove are lessirritating products, as well as other organic brands.Candle Allergy FactsEssential oils provide candles with the smell like autumn leaves and dune grass. Theymay not give you allergies, Dr. Wedner says. However, their odor can give you inflamednasal cavities. When a person has a nasal allergy, he is likely to get runny nose andwatery eyes around candles. Dr. Wedner suggests that the reason behind this is that,they have an intense sensitivity.When you have a sensitive nose, your smelling sensation is similar with smellingcigarette smoke. The best thing to do is to keep yourself away from candles if you havea sensitive nose. If a person loves to have candles at home, he should buy the oneswith a single scent and little ingredients, just like pumpkin.
  4. 4. www.allergysymptomsweb.comOne way to distinguish what type of scent or ingredient bothers you is to try varioustypes of candles with different perfumes and contents. If ever you have inhaled ascented candle and experienced bad reactions, it is advised to get some fresh air.Pollen Allergies FactsFor reproduction, Plants produce tiny, round or oval pollen grains which are too tiny tosee with the naked eye. For some plant species, fertilizing itself would mean to use itsown flower pollen. Other plants should be cross-pollinated by other plants of their ownspecie.In order for cross-pollination to take place, the pollen must be transported from oneflower to another of the same species so that fertilization will take place and seeds willform. For certain flowering plants, insects play a big role in transporting pollen. Forsome, the wind is the only means of transport. Plain-looking plants such as trees,grasses, and weeds; the ones that do not have showy flowers, are the types of pollenthat commonly cause allergic reactions. Pollen grains have to be custom-made for windtransport and therefore have to be small, light, dry.For more information visit: http://www.allergysymptomsweb.com, yoursource for all allergy related!
