Why do I have an allergy?

Most people with allergies are born with these abnormal immune reactions to specific elements, however others may develop it later in life following exposure to these elements.

What is an allergen?

An allergen is anything that causes an exaggerated immune response in specific people. You can be allergic to many and multiple things. However, typical allergens include food (like fish, nuts and eggs), chemicals (like latex, insecticides, preservatives or dyes), environmental elements (bee stings, grass, pollen or dust) and drugs.

What is an allergic reaction?

An allergic reaction is when your body is exposed to something in the environment (foods, pollen, grass, chemicals etc.) and it has an exaggerated immune response. This can lead to rashes, shortness of breath, gastro-intestinal symptoms etc. Some allergies may be life-threatening to some people, because of the body’s severe immune response. 

Why are some allergies life-threatening?

In some people, with some allergies, the exaggerated immune response is so severe that it can cause in the collapse in the cardiovascular system, which can lead to death making some allergies life-threatening to specific people.

How does an allergy test work?

An allergy test is when a health care provider exposes you – usually via the skin – to a small, controlled amount of a possible allergen. Your skin’s reaction to the potential allergen will help your health care provider determine whether you are allergic to it or not. It may also help determine how severe your allergy to this allergen is.

How does allergy immunotherapy work?

Your health care provider will give you small, controlled amounts of exposure to your allergen to help your body get use to the allergen to lower your body’s usual exaggerated response. Any allergy exposure may cause severe and life-threatening reactions, consequently any planned allergy exposure or treatment should be done in a controlled, fully equipped medical environment.
