How Do Allergies Occur?
Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance. Allergens like pollen, dust, and pet dander can commonly trigger an immune response. Certain medications, and less commonly, food, can also cause allergic reactions that manifest in the skin.
How Do Anti-inflammatory Medications Work?
Anti-inflammatory medications work by blocking the effects of inflammatory signals such as histamine in your body. This substance is normally released when your body detects something harmful, such as an infection.
While histamines are helpful for combating infections, they can lead to uncomfortable symptoms when released in response to an allergen. By blocking their release, you can overcome the symptom of an allergic reaction. While we work on getting symptoms under control, we will also work with you to identify the underlying cause so that it may be avoided or eliminated to prevent future flares.
