Allergies: Types and Treatment

Allergy is a reaction of the body’s immune system to a particular substance that is usually harmless otherwise but the body does not accept that. The substances to which the body might react vary from person to person. Such reaction usually creates lot of discomfort but is not necessarily similar in everyone. It might be mild in some cases but very severe in some requiring medication. Everyone does not have allergies but those who have them need to be careful and should go for treatment for permanent eradication.

There are two main types of allergies, namely, Season and Perennial:

  • Seasonal allergies occur in a specific season
  • Perennial allergies persist round the year.

There are countless items that could cause the trouble. For example, a person could be allergic to cigarette smoke, one or more particular food items, animals including pets, cockroaches, dust, specific odor, specific metal and pollen etc; the last one being the most common. Common symptoms include running nose, sore throat, irritation of eyes, dyspnea and irritation of skin. Some may get fever as well while some may get attack of suffocation even though they might not be asthmatic.

Most allergies can be treated by proper medication and/or avoiding contact with the relevant substance but practically it might not be possible to always avoid the unwanted. So medication would be a better answer. Homeopathic medicines cover wide range of allergies and associated symptoms and can effectively cure them.

If you have some kind of allergy, speak to your homeopathic doctor for treatment.
