Allergy Types

1. Drug Allergy

It is a reaction of the immune system to a medicine. It could be prescription, non-prescription and herbal. Common symptoms for a drug allergy are hives, rash, and fever.

2. Food Allergy

The difference between a food allergy and intolerance is a food allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to certain proteins in food and food intolerance occurs when the body has a chemical reaction to eating a particular food or drink.

3. Insect Allergy

The most common insect allergy is Dust Mites. According to the AAFA (Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America), around 20 million Americans are allergic to dust mites, meaning they're one of the most common triggers of allergies and asthma.

4. Latex Allergy

People can have a reaction to certain proteins found in natural rubber latex which comes from the rubber tree. Your body mistakes latex for a harmful substance.

6. Pet Allergy

Pet Dander can cause problems with people prone to airborne allergies. Saliva and Urine can also cause problems.  Dander is dead skin cells that you’re pet sheds and can be compared to dandruff in humans.

People with overactive immune systems can have a reaction to the proteins secreted by the glands on the animal’s skin surface.

7. Pollen Allergy

Pollen season can be a miserable time for those with hay fever. Whether you're allergic to just one type of pollen, such as grass pollen, or react to several types of pollen during the main pollen-release period, you likely must spend most of the summer indoors.

Allergy Treatments

Antihistamines - They are a class of drugs used to treat conditions of too much histamine in your body created by your immune system. They are used when people have an allergic reaction to an allergen.

Histamines - They are antibodies which get secreted when your body believes an invading allergenic substance like Pollen or pathogen like a Virus and Bacteria have entered the body. They also can be released because of an invading Toxin.
