Food allergies, hayfever, skin allergies, and reactions to pet dander: the symptoms of these allergies are different but the cause is the same: your immune system is over reacting to an ordinarily harmless substance. Whether you get skin rashes, itchy eyes, wheezy airways, or a runny nose, an allergic response is no fun and sometimes dangerous. With that said, it's good to know that the science of allergy treatment has come a long way. Doctors now understand the allergic response on a molecular level, producing better ways to diagnose and treat all kinds of allergies from hay fever to food reactions. Learn to identify your allergic symptoms, pinpoint your triggers, distinguish between intolerance and allergy, and choose the best treatment for your particular allergic type of allergy.
