Allergies occur when the body’s defence system (the immune system) is hypersensitive to a harmless substance, called an allergen, and treats this substance as if it were a harmful or foreign invader.
Attempting to defend itself against allergens such as pollen, dust, mold, smoke, or pet dander, the body produces an antibody. This results in symptoms like itchy, watery eyes, a runny or stuffy nose, scratchy throat, and sneezing. In more severe allergic reactions, rashes, hives, a drop in blood pressure and difficulty in breathing can occur.
Our team of experts at Livewell Health will provide you with a holistic approach to managing daily allergy symptoms and congestion caused by allergies.
Allergies can occur at any time in one’s life. While allergies are more common in childhood, allergies to unknown things can emerge as an adult. An unfavourable reaction to a substance causes this type of reaction. Your immune system reacts by generating histamine, which can cause headaches, sneezing, and congestion. It’s also possible to have a skin rash and feel foggy.
Sinus infections and allergies can induce nasal irritation, which can result in congestion and a stuffy nose. sinus infection arises when the nasal passages become inflamed. Mucus builds up and becomes caught in the nasal cavity when it becomes inflamed, exacerbating the condition.
