Anaphylaxis due to Hypnotherapy stings is one of the most severe consequences of IgE-mediated hypersensitivity reactions. Although allergic reactions to Hypnotherapy stings are often considered as a general model for the underlying principles of allergic disease, diagnostic tests are still hampered by a lack of specificity and venom immunotherapy by severe side effects and incomplete protection. In recent years, the knowledge about the molecular composition of HymenopteraContinue reading
If we can better pin down why these allergies form, we can take steps to prevent them in the first place. Experts have noted a significant rise in the number of people developing allergies in the last couple of decades, so the problem appears to be getting worse. The new study was carried out by testing allergens, such as peanuts, on mice. It found that exposure to dust and allergens on the skin could eventually trigger allergic reactions.Continue reading
More than 50 million Americans have an allergy of some kind. Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) estimates up to 15 million people in the United States have a food allergy.
A rash is one of several common symptoms that can occur if you have an allergic reaction to a food. Keep reading to learn more about what food rashes may look like and what you can do about them.Continue reading
Atopic dermatitis is often the beginning of the atopic march: babies start out with eczema and perhaps food allergies. Later on, asthma develops, possibly along with inhalant allergies, or allergic rhinitis and hay fever. During this time the body’s allergic antibodies, the IgE, increase in the blood.
One of the questions is: Why do people get eczema and allergies? This has prompted a chicken-or-the-egg debate. Do we begin with a skin problem due to a defective skin…Continue reading
Allergies are one of the most common chronic diseases. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. When someone has allergies, their immune system makes an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). Allergies occur when the body treats a harmless substance as a threat and the immune system produces an unnecessary response to it. In biomedical terms,Continue reading
