Are Allergies Impacting Your Life?

When you have an allergy to either food or something in the air or in your home, it can make life miserable. From itchy eyes and an itchy throat to constant sneezing, the symptoms and conditions caused by allergies will make enjoying the outdoors, going to work or even trying to relax incredibly difficult. Some people don’t realize that they are experiencing allergy symptoms because allergies can resemble other conditions.

When you come to Houston Sinus & Allergy for an assessment, our experienced ear, nose and throat doctor will find out once and for all if allergies are responsible for the irritating symptoms you’re experiencing.

What Are Allergies and Allergy Conditions?

Allergy sufferers have an immune system that’s hypersensitive to typically harmless substances in the environment. That means your immune system reacts to these foreign substances called allergens as if they were dangerous. Allergy conditions develop when you become sensitized to an allergen, which means that whenever you come into contact with a particular substance, your immune system’s response can cause a variety of symptoms related to your sinuses, airways, skin or digestive system.

The severity of allergy conditions varies from person to person, ranging from minor irritations to potentially life-threatening emergencies.

What Causes Allergy Conditions?

An allergy condition develops when your immune system sees a harmless substance as a dangerous invader. Your immune system then produces antibodies that are continuously on the alert for that particular foreign substance. Coming into contact with that allergen again will make your immune system release chemicals that cause your allergy symptoms.

Some of the most common causes or triggers for allergy conditions include:

  • Airborne substances: Pet dander, pollen, mold, dust mites
  • Foods: Peanuts, wheat, fish, eggs, dairy
  • Insects: Stings from bees or wasps
  • Medications: Penicillin-based antibodies
  • Substances you touch: Latex

What Are the Symptoms of an Allergy Condition?

If you have an allergy condition, the symptoms you experience can overwhelm your life and make it difficult to focus on anything else. It’s critical to understand some of the signs that may point to allergies so that you can seek the treatment you need.

Some of the most common symptoms that allergy sufferers experience include:
