A glimpse of allergy causes and prevention tips

  1. 1. A Glimpse of Allergy Causes andPrevention Tips
  2. 2. Candle Allergy Tips Essential oils provide candles with the smell like autumn leaves and dune grass. They may not give you allergies, Dr. Wedner says. However, their odor can give you inflamed nasal cavities. He also says that there is an amplified sensitivity for people having nasal allergies. When they are exposed to candles, they get runny nose and watery eyes. The sensation of a person with nose sensitivity is like smelling cigarette smoke. Consider staying away from candles if you know you have an extreme sensitivity. Candles having only one scent and few ingredients should be chosen by people who are sensitive. Using trial and error method may help you determine which particular scent or ingredient you are allergic to. A person who has a sensitive nose may experience bad reactions upon inhaling scented candles. In this case, he is advised to inhale some fresh air to make him feel well.
  3. 3. Vaccine Allergy Overview Vaccines can sometimes cause the body to have reacting to allergies. What makes it worse is this condition can lead anaphylaxis. A hypersensitivity reaction to a vaccine occurs in one in a million. Consider possible hazards against non vaccination before deciding to vaccinate or not. Mumps and measles can be prevented with proper protection from the parents. However, kids may still be required by their schools to have some shots of vaccines. What are the allergic reaction triggers in the vaccine that you and your children can get? It is believed that there are two probable allergens. First are the egg proteins in flu and yellow fever vaccines. Second is the gelatin in measles, mumps, rubella, Japanese encephalitis, and varicella vaccines. Thimerosal caused hypersensitivity reactions in many people. However, this preservative was already excluded from all the vaccines that have been licensed in the United States.
  4. 4. Food Allergy Almost everyone can get affected by food allergies or food intolerances. Some people are not aware that they have allergies. They are just left wondering why they are experiencing unwanted allergic reactions. One third of individuals are saying that they actually have food allergies or they just control their family diet because a member of the family is believed to have acquired food allergy. Among other types of allergies, food allergies have affected approximately 5% on children. There are 4% of teens and adults who have acquired food allergies. There is a big difference between food intolerance and food allergy. The misconception of the two affects the clinically proven prevalence of food allergy and the perception of the public about this problem. A food allergy is defined as the hypersensitive reaction of the body towards an allergen. Food intolerance and food allergy may have similar symptoms. However, the immune system is only responsible for the symptoms of allergy to food. One example of this is milk allergy and milk intolerance. The difference is that, milk allergy causes adverse reaction due to the release of histamine by the immune system, while lactose intolerance is just the inability to endure or digest milk.
  5. 5. Mold Allergy Facts Pollen, dust mite, and mold allergies have similar symptoms. It may include congestion, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny rose, and coughing. Molds are parasitic fungi that can be seen under a microscope. Just like pollen, they have the ability to float in the air. During summer and fall, the incidence of mold allergy increases. However, if mold thrives inside your home, symptoms of mold allergy can occur all year round. Soil from indoor plants can promote the growth of molds. Therefore, they should be kept to a minimum. Water leakages may contribute to mold growth. Make sure to have them repaired as soon as possible. A similarity of symptoms is observed with pollen, dust mite, and mold allergy. Common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, and congestion.
  6. 6. Poison Ivy Allergy Guide Urushiol causes the itchiness brought about by contact with poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. Itchy rashes typical of an allergic reaction is observed with exposure to urushiol. This may happen within a few hours, or days after exposure. Urushiol may be contracted from exposure to contaminated garden or camping equipments. The leaves, stems, and roots of a poison plant contain urushiol. A very rapid skin absorption occurs with urushiol contact. Inhaling urushiol particles in the air is probable during poison plant combustion. Respiratory tract irritation occurs upon breathing in of smoke from burning poison plants. The allergic reaction observed is primarily due to airborne urushiol. Most parts of the US, except Alaska, Hawaii, and the Southwest deserts, are conducive for the growth of the poison plants. The existence of poison ivy can be categorized into two. It can occur as vines or as shrubs. Areas on the north and west typically have poison ivy shrubs. In other places, poison ivy grows as vines. When identifying a poison plant, remember its characteristic three leaflet pattern. Poison sumac generally occurs as a woody shrub. This plant also has stems with about 7 to 13 leaves arranged in pairs. A green and drooping cluster of berries differentiates poison sumac from harmless sumac. Poison sumac commonly prefers living in wet and mucky areas. Bundles of red, upright berries usually grow on harmless sumac shrubs.
