What is causing my allergic reaction?
When your body overreacts to something, it is an allergy. We call the trigger for that allergy an allergen. There are many foods, environmental, and even drug-based allergens you could be allergic to. It isn’t clear why some people are allergic to some things and not others, although family history seems to play a role in it. It also isn’t uncommon for someone to “grow out” of their allergy as they grow older or to develop one later in life where they previously haven’t had an allergy.
Can you cure my allergy?
There is no medical “cure” for an allergy, but we treat the symptoms, so they are less impactful on your day to day life. Some treatments reduce your symptoms until your allergy has passed. Other times, depending on the nature and cause of the allergy, we can begin desensitization treatments. These months or years-long therapy sessions expose your body to diluted solutions of the allergen to slowly build up your body’s tolerance to it, so it doesn’t overact to it in the real world. This treatment must be done by a doctor in a controlled setting, to ensure a patient’s safety. However, if successful, it should cause your body to have less of an allergic reaction to allergens, reducing your symptoms. In some cases, symptoms may vanish altogether. Please keep in mind that your body will still be allergic to the allergen, but its tolerance to it reduces the chance of experiencing allergies.
How do I know if I have an allergy?
For some, it is evident when you have an allergic reaction to something. In other cases, it may not be clear as the allergic reaction is delayed. Testing at our allergy clinic in Kingwood, TX area is the only way to know for sure if you are allergic to something. Many people are surprised to find out they are allergic to multiple things. This information helps our allergy doctors create an effective treatment plan for you and assist you in avoiding situations that could trigger an allergic reaction.
