Allergies can impact your health and wellness in every season.
Classically defined, an allergy is a heightened sensitivity to a foreign substance—called an allergen—that causes the body’s defense system to overreact. Allergies come in many forms, resulting in anything from a mild annoyance to a life-threatening situation.
When functioning normally, our immune systems will only react if a harmful substance, such as bacteria or a virus, attacks. This isn’t the case for people with allergies. Rather than operating smoothly, allergy sufferers’ immune systems work too hard and react even when relatively harmless substances, like pollen, are present.
Contact with the allergen—usually by breathing it in or by touching it—is all it takes to set off an allergic reaction.
Common Allergy Symptoms
You know that sniffly, sneezy, wheezing feeling you sometimes get when spring blooms? Those are allergy symptoms. Typical allergic reactions can also include:
- nasal congestion
- itchy skin
- itchy, watery eyes
- runny nose
- stomach ache
