  • An allergic reaction is the natural response of your body's defense system, which reacts powerfully to the usually harmless substances like food, pollen, dust, or insect stings. After coming across an allergen, your immune system mistakenly sees it as a threat and releases chemicals such as histamine to protect your body.

    These chemicals lead to different symptoms, which are of different strengths depending on the person and the allergen encountered. The symptoms might range from slight discomfort to serious reactions, depending on the person and the allergen causing the reaction.

    Symptoms of allergic reaction

    The most common symptoms of allergic reaction include:

    • Skin reactions like itching, redness, or hives
    • Runny or stuffy nose
    • Sneezing
    • Watery or itchy eyes
    • Swelling of the lips, tongue, face, or throat
    • Difficulty breathing or wheezing
    • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

    In some cases, allergic reactions can be severe and potentially life-threatening, resulting in anaphylaxis. Seeking medical assistance is crucial if you encounter allergic symptoms, mainly if they are severe or have a history of severe allergies.
