Allergy: Ideally, your immune system should destroy only harmful substances that may cause your body harm. But, when a person is allergic to something, their immune system will attack the object entered the body, and cause the person to react. An allergy may cause the affected person to be irritated, have swollen body parts, rashes, or runny eyes or nose.
Symptoms: Symptoms of any allergy are listed below but are not limited to:
- Runny nose
- Stuffy nose
- Watery eyes
- Swollen, red eyes
- Itching of eyes or nose or both
- Swollen face or any body part
- Tingling nose or eyes or mouth
Causes: When your immune system recognizes a harmless object that has entered your body as harmful and starts attacking it, the reaction is Allergy. Once your immune system releases a set of antibodies for a foreign object, the immune system always destroys the same substance, causing the person to react.
Some of the common triggers for an allergy in a person are:
- Food items: milk, eggs, nuts, soy, fish, etc.
- Medical: Penicillin or any medicine made of penicillin
- Airborne: Pollen grains, molds, dust, animal hair
- Plants: Latex, flowers
Self-diagnosis: It is always advisable not to do a self-diagnosis and visit the doctor whenever needed. Most often than not, self-diagnosis may lead to misdiagnosis. However, you can keep a check on yourself by noting the changes in your body when you encounter certain items in the environment. It is suitable for your health to pay a doctor’s visit if you frequently have a runny nose or watery eyes when you contact some allergens.
