Allergy - types, causes and diagnosis
The number of allergens around the world is increasing exponentially every year due to an increase in living standards. An allergic reaction can cause literally everything that surrounds us. Whether it occurs or not depends on the individual sensitivity of the person, and a hereditary predisposition plays an important role.
Here are the main types:
Seasonal - The most common form of seasonal allergy is hay fever. It is the body's reaction to flowering and dusting of plants. The most common cause is tree pollen. The initial manifestations of pollen allergy are sneezing, nasal congestion, redness of the eyes, and strong reactions in the form of asthma attacks are possible. This is explained by the fact that trees grow everywhere and dust over longer distances. The most common allergen among trees is birch pollen.
Food - is a state of hypersensitivity to food. Food allergy is an excessive reaction of the body to substances contained in certain types of food. As a result, eating even a small amount of such foods causes unpleasant symptoms.
