For some people, things that enter their body—whether inhaled, ingested, or injected—are viewed as invaders. To protect itself, your immune system will fight back against these perceived enemies. Unfortunately, this protective response can actually do more harm than good, causing a range of symptoms from nasal congestion, eye itching, nausea and wheezing to more severe reactions such as hives and swelling of the airways.
Allergies fall into four main categories:
• Environmental, including pollen, pet dander, chemicals, cigarette smoke
• Food, such as dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, berries, and wheat
• Drug, including penicillin and sulfa drugs
• Venom from bees, wasps, hornets, and fire ants
