Allergy is a condition that results when a person’s body shows an abnormal or hypersensitive reaction to an allergen, which could be any substance that otherwise causes no harm to individuals without allergies. Allergens may include mould, pollen, dust, animal fur, or even specific food items, metals, cosmetic products, and more. Whenever one suffers from an allergic reaction, they may experience symptoms such as skin rashes, gastrointestinal issues, etc. among others. If ignored, these symptoms can aggravate and create serious problems, hence it is best to get yourself checked from a trusted homeopathy doctor in Bhandup or other branches of HomoeoCARE - the reputed chain of homeopathic clinics in India. 
 
Allergies occur due to the body’s incorrect immune response which considers an allergen as a threat and tries to fight against it by releasing chemicals like histamine into the bloodstream. However, allergies are of different types, and each type has its own set of signs and symptoms. 
 
3 Main Types of Allergies That You Should Be Aware Of 
 
1. Respiratory tract allergies
 
When an individual inhales certain proteins in the air, they can trigger an inflammation in their airways and thus lead to respiratory tract allergies. These allergies can have multiple triggers - from the pollen, mites, mould, pet dander, etc. present in house dust to the fumes, smoke, or other particulate matter in the outside environment. Cold, bronchitis, asthma, tonsillitis, etc. are some examples of respiratory allergies and illnesses. If you are witnessing any of these, you must get in touch with a reliable homeopathic doctor in Goregaon or other places with HomoeoCARE branches. 
 
Symptoms
  • Cough 
  • Chest congestion 
  • Runny nose 
  • Itching in the eyes, nose, or throat 
  • Shortness of breath, etc.
 
2. Food or gastric allergies 
 
Food or gastric allergies have become increasingly common owing to changes in our eating habits, excessive consumption of processed foods, etc. These allergies are caused by specific proteins in the food that quickly trigger adverse reactions. Hypersensitivity to items like flour, nuts, shellfish, dairy, eggs, wheat, among others usually leads to food allergies.
 
Symptoms: 
  • Diarrhoea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Nausea 
  • Gas 
  • Abdominal pain 
  • Stomach ache 
  • Sickness 
  • No increase in height or weight, etc. 
 
3. Skin allergies 
 
Skin allergies are also of several types, such as photoallergy, urticaria or hives, and allergic contact dermatitis. Symptoms of these allergies can present right a few minutes after exposure or even a few days post that. They are commonly caused by physical contact with some chemicals, preservatives, metals, dyes, fragrances, etc. that can penetrate your skin. Metals like nickel or substances found in products such as cosmetics, jewellery, textiles, detergents, and more often trigger skin allergies in individuals prone to them. This condition is also an occupational hazard for people engaged in professions where they are required to work with sensitising agents and irritants, or wash their hands frequently. 
 
Symptoms: 
  • Redness 
  • Itching 
  • Burning sensation 
  • Dry skin
