What are skin allergies?
Skin allergies are conditions where the body is highly sensitive to certain substances including pollen, grass flower, fungi or food products. It produces chronic symptoms when these substances enter the body, in which the cells produce histamine causing allergic reactions.

Causes of skin allergies
• A family history of skin allergies may result in the individual having a higher chance of developing negative reactions to specific substances.
• Being in both natural and built environments may result in the individual being excessively exposed to dust, cigarette smoke, air pollution, pollen and grass flower.

 

How the body processes these substances?
The substances that enter the body causing allergic reactions occur in the immune system. The immune system seeks to recognise foreign substances entering the body including viruses and bacteria and is determined to fight the unwanted intruders. However, allergies are caused by the immune system first reacting to the substances, secreting histamine at various tissues, resulting in inflammation. These symptoms include nasal congestion, angina, rashes or urticarial, which have the potential result of developing into severe consequences, even death. 

How do we recognise an allergy?
It is not always easy to recognise symptoms of an allergy. Sometimes, even the common cold has similar symptoms to skin allergies, including sinus inflammation. It is best that an individual seeks further advice from a qualified dermatologist to make a proper diagnosis and to provide the most suitable treatment. 

What are the symptoms of allergies? 
• Respiratory – similar symptoms to changing weather conditions, conjunctivitis, itchy nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose and coughing. 
• Cutaneous – symptoms of rashes, urticaria and atopic dermatitis.
• Gastrointestinal – symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting and indigestion.

Treatment Methods
A dermatologist may prescribe medications or to assist the body to immunise itself through injecting substances that cause an allergic reaction in the body. This in-turn effectively builds the body’s immunity, minimising the potential of allergic reactions. 


Preventative Measures
• Avoid exposure to allergens.
• Reside in a well-ventilated area.
• Maintain a clean home environment to reduce the accumulation of dust particles.
