Allergic Conditions

Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions worldwide.

According to the leading experts in allergy research, an allergic reaction begins in the immune system. The immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing an allergic reaction.

Allergy Symptoms

An allergic reaction typically triggers symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, lining of the stomach, or on the skin. For some people, allergies can also trigger asthma symptoms. In serious cases, a life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis can occur. A number of different allergens are responsible for allergic reactions. The most common include:

Animal Dander

Pet allergies are caused by a protein present in pet’s dander, skin flakes, saliva, and urine.


Dust mites that can be found in dust particles and can cause a dust allergy.


Food Allergies include tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, milk, soy, peanuts, and wheat and gluten allergies.

Insect Stings

In a stinging insect allergy, the allergen is the venom from a sting.


Pollen allergies causes so-called Hay Fever (or Seasonal allergic rhinitis).


Allergies and adverse reactions to medications are common, and people can have a wide variety  of allergic symptoms.


Molds are microscopic fungi made up of clusters of filaments. Many molds reproduce by releasing spores into the air.


Latex is a milky sap produced by rubber trees.
