Top Best Allergy Medicine

+ Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment.

+ These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis.Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions.

+ Early exposure to potential allergens may be protective.Treatments for allergies include avoiding known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines.

+ In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.Allergen immunotherapy, which gradually exposes people to larger and larger amounts of allergen, is useful for some types of allergies such as hay fever and reactions to insect bites. Its use in food allergies is unclear.
