Know Your Allergy Symptoms
Many people in the greater Milwaukee area suffer needlessly from allergies due to food, pets, insects, and other allergens. Your recurring symptoms can be controlled with help from Allergy & Asthma Centers S.C., with two locations in Wauwatosa and Greenfield, WI. Allergy symptoms occur when your immune system reacts to substances in the environment, such as mold, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and even certain foods. Your allergies can range in severity from a mild inconvenience to a life-threatening situation. They can affect places all over your body like your skin, stomach, airways, eyes, and anywhere else. Many symptoms can be eliminated or controlled by determining the right treatment, which requires testing from a trained and experienced physician like those at Allergy & Asthma Centers S.C.
Common Allergy Symptoms to Consider
The effects of allergens can hit various locations of your body and include a wide array of symptoms from mild to severe and even life-threatening. If you have recurring symptoms, they could easily be caused by environmental substances triggering your immune system. It’s not always easy to tell what ailments could be caused by an allergic response, but some symptoms can be tell-tale indicators. In any case, recurring symptoms should always be addressed by a medical professional.
Some Common Symptoms of Allergies Include
Symptoms on the skin include hives and eczema
Your eyes can experience itching, redness, swelling, and watering
The effect on your airways can include a runny nose, coughing, and wheezing
Your stomach can be afflicted with abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea
Symptoms that affect your full body include dizziness, frequent headaches, difficulty breathing, and loss of consciousness
Allergic Rhinitis/Conjunctivitis Care
Your sinus and nasal allergies can be a painful struggle and a frustrating inconvenience. When seasonal nasal allergies affect you, they can cause inflammation that blocks your sinuses and trigger your mucus membranes. Blockages put you in a state of painful and severe sinus issues, and we strongly recommend that you seek help from an allergist. Your eyes can also be affected by seasonal and non-seasonal allergies like dust, pollen, or weeds. Symptoms can include redness, mucus, blurry vision, and watery eyes. These symptoms usually last only a short time, but they’re an annoyance in your daily life. Allergy & Asthma Centers S.C. can help you with your allergic rhinitis or conjunctivitis at our Wauwatosa, WI or Greenfield, WI location.
A food allergy reaction occurs when you ingest or eat something, and your immune system reacts. Every time this happens, your body creates antibodies that release histamine over time, which affects your digestive tract and respiratory system. Hives and skin rashes that cover your entire body are also possible reactions. Food allergies usually start to affect you within two hours of ingestion. Some other possible symptoms include tingling in your mouth, vomiting, cramps, diarrhea, swelling of the tongue and throat, and losing consciousness.
