What is ALLERGY?


Allergies are hypersensitive immune responses to substances that either enter or come in contact with the body, such as pet dander, pollen or bee venom. A substance that causes an allergic reaction is called an “allergen”. Allergens can be found in food, drinks or the environment.


 What are the symptoms of allergies?

When you have an allergic reaction there may be a combination of the following allergy symptoms:

  1. sneezing.
  2. wheezing.
  3. nasal congestion.
  4. coughing.
  5. itchy, watery eyes.
  6. runny nose.
  7. itchy throat.
  8. stomach ache.

Can allergies make you want to throw up?

Allergies may show up as itchy eyes or an itchy nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, throat tightness, trouble breathing, vomiting, and even faintness or passing out. Severe allergic reactions (called anaphylaxis) can be fatal if not treated in time.


An allergy is the response of the body’s immune system to normally harmless substances, such as pollens, foods, and house dust mite. Whilst in most people these substances (allergens) pose no problem, in allergic individuals their immune system identifies them as a’ threat’ and produces an inappropriate response.

Most common types allergy

Drug allergy
An abnormal reaction of the immune system to a medication.

Food allergies
An unpleasant or dangerous immune system reaction after a certain food is eaten.

Contact dermatitis
A skin rash caused by contact with a certain substance.

Latex allergy
An allergic reaction to certain proteins found in natural rubber latex.

Allergic asthma
Asthma triggered by exposure to the same substances that trigger allergy symptoms.

Seasonal allergies
An allergic response causing itchy, watery eyes, sneezing and other similar symptoms.

Animal allergy
An abnormal immune reaction to proteins in an animal’s skin cells, saliva or urine.

A severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.

Allergy to mold
An abnormal immune reaction to mould spores.

People with allergies have extra-sensitive immune systems which react to normally harmless substances. Allergens that sometimes produce this reaction include plant pollen, dust mites, or animal dander; plants such as poison ivy; certain drugs, such as penicillin; and certain foods such as eggs, milk, nuts, or seafood.

alergy-2The tendency to develop a particular kind of allergy is inherited, and allergies usually begin to appear in childhood, but they can show up at any age. Common allergies for infants include food allergies and eczema (patches of dry skin). Older children and adults may often develop allergic rhinitis (hay fever), a reaction to an inhaled allergen; common symptoms include nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. It is best to avoid contact with the allergen, if feasible. Some people with allergies also have asthma, and allergens are a common asthma trigger.


Conventional treatment can help in acute episodes but fails to give long term relief. Homeopathy can give long term relief in this condition. Homeopathic medicines administered after detail case study enhances the immunity of the patient and prevents recurrent episodes and intensity of each episode is reduced significantly.
