I was a victim of skin allergy. I am searching for solution of my skin allergies. Because of that, I encourage to search and make this article to know about skin allergy, its causes and on how to manage this. Here are some facts that I find out about skin allergy.

Allergies are describe as immune reactions to stimuli that result into several reactions such as skin rushes, a runny or stifling nose, sneezing and watery eyes. Each time your body experiences an overreaction to something that does not affect to others, then, it is allergy. Allergen is the one that can causes allergy. Most common allergen is pollen that comes from the grass, weeds or tress. Other allergens come from the mold, animal dander and dust. Advice of the doctors is, people should take shower before bedtime to clean themselves from any allergens before they sleep.

Skin allergy is the most common among skin problems. It is the negative reaction of skin to a particular substance. Skin allergies can make one’s life miserable when it attacks unexpectedly. Staying away from those substances that can cause allergies is the best method to reduce the possibility of skin allergy to occur. You can distinguish skin allergy when the skin will turn to red, rough, scaly, itchy or puffy. These are the symptoms of skin allergy.

Causes of skin allergy are different for every people. Some causes are dust, certain foods, fabrics, beauty products, pollutant, and animal dander while other is from metals, insect bites, viruses and bacteria. Mainly, our immune system is naturally designed to attack any foreign substance by generating antibodies. Histamine (an amine released by immune cells that produces allergic reactions) is a major antibody. So many things can trigger allergies. Some of them are latex a liquid comes from some plants such as rubber tree, whose sap is used to manufacture rubber. Latex found also in pacifiers of babies, balloons, elastic bands and even in pencil’s erasers. Another thing that can trigger allergy is nickel. It is a hard corrosion-resistant silvery white metallic element such as of jewelry and coin. However, nickel can also obtainable in our everyday objects such as in bathrooms, kitchens, scissors, zippers and even kitchen cabinet handles. Even mascara, eye shadow and eye pencils are contain nickel.

Effective way to treat skin allergies is to understand first the allergies condition, identify the thing that can trigger it, and know the treatment for it. You can visit your doctor for consultation. Prevention is better than cure. Allergies cannot eradicate, but can prevent. Keep your skin moist and soft condition and make sure that it is not in dry condition. Apply lotion or emollient cream as possible to keep moisturizing skin and so the allergy will not develop.
