How Allergens Affect Your Body
Everyone is familiar with allergies, but most people don’t really know how allergens cause the reactions that they do. When you see an allergy doctor, he or she provides treatment that stops the way your body reacts to an allergen. Watch this video to learn more.
When you have an allergy, your body sees the allergen as an invader that must be neutralized to protect your health. Among the substances released by the immune system to deal with the allergen is histamine, which can cause runny eyes and nose, atopic dermatitis, and other symptoms. For this reason, antihistamines are a popular allergy treatment.
