WHAT ARE ALLERGIES?
WHAT ARE ALLERGENS?

We all know that people are not born with allergies.
We also know that we become ALLERGIC TO as a result of ourselves coming into contact with allergens. Upon contact with what our body or our system rejects, allergic symptoms generally occur quickly after exposure, can take many forms and can be of differing levels of severity.

Allergic reactions vary from individual to individual and its effect, severity and duration can depend on the person, his health status and even the age. Allergies are always unpleasant, unless the source is immediately known, treatment time can drag, and is capable of triggering its own side effects, making treatment a difficult progress.

Our body has its own immunity factor. When that gets altered or it succumbs to foreign allergens, allergies result. Allergy reactions can be the common kind like fever, allergic asthma, food allergies and sometimes even prescribed drug allergies. There are the difficult types like peeling eczema-like rash called "contact dermatitis" and is triggered when an allergen comes into contact with the skin. This type of reaction is much slower and usually takes two days to become obvious.

There are cases of inherited genes which can cause a person to become "atopic", the term used for people who have a tendency to develop allergies. People who develop one allergy are more likely to develop others.

House dust mites, which grow in warm, humid and dusty environments, are the source of one of the most powerful biological allergens; and some mould species also contain allergens.
The following symptoms generally occur quickly after exposure and reactions vary in severity. Coughing,Wheezing,Shortness of breath,Sneezing, skin rashes, Red, itchy and swollen eyes, and Flushed face are the common ones..

When allergy reactions show, do not wait. Consult your doctor. Let your doctor assess the severity of your condition. You may even require medicine to control your reactions.

Regularly water wash your indoor air ( we show you how to) and do not sweep the floor, but water wash your floor ( we show you how to) and water wash all your mattresses, bedroom drapery, cushions, curtains and at large the entire home interior.... all with water, without getting anything wet.

Indoor hygiene and cleanliness is one way to keep allergens out of your way.
