The reaction to any typical element or substance by the body is medically called the allergic reaction. Allergies are the most common medical reaction disorders that are widely experienced by most of the people around the world. Alergic problems are considered as the single largest reasons for the maximum school absence as well as the major source of the lost productivity at the work place in general. The allergies are otherwise unusual reactions of the immune system that develops in response to otherwise harmless substances
Allergic reaction is a kind of immune reaction, generally the immune system responds to the foreign microorganisms or particles by generating substantial quantum of proteins which are medically called the antibodies. Such antibodies are competent enough of binding for recognizing molecules or antigens on the foreign particles. The reactions thus developed between the antibodies and the antigen generates various chemical reactions designed to guard the body infections. Often such types of reactions are caused by totally harmless daily substance like pollen, dust or animal dander.
Identifying and averting the probable allergen causing reactions is the most effective remedy for allergic disorder. Mast cells, containing the smaller chemical filled packets called the granules, which is one of the great players in the allergic reactions incarcerate and exhibit the exact sort of antibody, called immunoglobulin type E-IgE which binds to the allergens. The granules contain various powerful chemicals like histamines.
The commonly known allergens include: foods, home style, certain medications, alcohol, peanuts, gluten, dairy products, rubber or latex, synthetic clothing and many more.
