HOW ALLERGIES ATTACK 

Allergies are the result of the reaction of our immune system to allergens.

When allergies occur, the immune system identifies an allergen, such as pollen, as an “invader.” In response, the body mounts an immune response.

To rid itself of the invader, the immune response triggers a variety of symptoms—such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose,  blocked nose, sinus pain and congestion—that you likely know all too well. 

Here are 6 important facts you should know about allergies: 

  1. Allergies are caused when your immune system reacts to allergens.
  2. An allergen is a substance that triggers an allergic reaction.
  3. The most common allergens are pollen, house dust mites, and pet dander.
  4. You can have allergy symptoms all year round.
  5. The immune response triggers a variety of symptoms.
  6. Your body produces multiple allergic substances in response to allergens.
 
 

HOW YOUR BODY RESPONDS TO ALLERGENS: AN INSIDE LOOK

If you have allergic rhinitis it means your immune system is reacting to ordinary harmless particles like dust mites, pet hair, mould spores and pollen and grasses in the same way it reacts to harmless viruses and bacteria. It attacks sending out a stream of allergic substances that are designed to protect your body against outside invaders. The release of this string of substances is called the inflammatory cascade and sets off a series of reactions in your body, similar to a domino effect. These substances trigger a process of inflammatory causing your nasal passageways to become swollen and irritated. This inflammation causes the nasal allergy systems which can disrupt your day and night.
