An allergy is a condition in which the immune system responds to a foreign substance which is harmful for the body. Our immune system becomes hypersensitive to certain substances like medications, pollen, foods, etc. which results in the allergic reactions in the body.

The substance causing the allergy is termed as allergen. Various allergens are of everyday substances which are typically not harmful for most people. However, any substance can be an allergen when the immune system shows a specific type of adverse reaction to that substance.

Allergy Causes

During an allergic reaction, allergens bind to antibodies (immunoglobulin E) produced by the body. Basically the antibodies defend the body against harmful substances in the body. Once the allergen gets connected to the antibodies, mast cells release chemicals which trigger the symptoms of the allergic reaction. Histamine is also one of these chemicals and causes the muscles in the airways and walls of the arteries to tighten. It also causes the excess mucus production by instructing the lining of the nose.

Allergy Diagnosis

When you visit a doctor’s clinic, he may ask about your body symptoms which you have noticed, the medication history and the family history of allergies. The doctor may also recommend some tests for diagnosing allergy, which include:

  • Blood tests – A blood sample from your vein is taken and sent to the laboratory to measure the levels of IgE antibodies in the blood. Reports will give an idea to the doctor about the things from which the patient could have allergy.
  • Skin prick test – In this test, the doctor will prick the skin with a little amount of a possible allergen. The patient will be diagnosed with allergy if his skin reacts and becomes red, itchy or swollen.
  • Patch test – To detect contact eczema, the doctor may attach a metal disc with some amount of suspected allergen on the back of the person. After 48 hours, the patient is checked for any skin reaction.

All these tests and physical examination will help the doctor in diagnosing the patient with allergy.
