When the body comes into contact with allergic substances, the human immune system, and immune cells will a large number of specific immunoglobulins (Specific IgE) for this type of allergen.

Mast cells are stimulated upon the binding of IgE to release inflammatory factors such as histamine which leads to inflammation of body organs and tissues, manifested as allergic symptoms.

Find out the source of allergies

Common allergens can be divided into two categories

Food allergens

Including fish, shrimp, crab and other seafood as well as protein-containing nuts (e.g. peanuts)

Environmental factors

Such as dust mites, pollen, mold, etc., causing vasomotor rhinitis or viral infection

Food

Healthy food such as eggs, milk, nuts, seafood, beef, orange, banana, etc., can be potential allergens. Food allergic individuals may experience chronic reactions such as itchy skin and eczema
after eating food allergens. They may even have acute reactions such as dyspnea, low blood pressure and severe itching, etc.

Pollen

Pollen is one of the major inhaled allergens. There are more than 10
types of antibodies being produced upon inhaling the pollen allergen and causing asthma, allergic rhinitis and other allergic
reactions.

Animal Hair

Allergies against animals are most likely due to contacting animal secretion, such as saliva, urine, and swears. Such secretions well stick on to animal fur which would cause allergies to patient when you come in contact with.

Mites

Many experts believe that the dust mites is associate with the furnishings and the respective layout. House furniture is pretty
easy for dust mites to hide. Allergic rhinitis, dermatitis, asthma and other allergies are offen due to the exposure to dust mite secretion, excretion and dead dust mite bodies.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are the second most important furniture related
allergen after dust mites. Cockroach excrement, dander, etc. will
float in the air and can cause allergies if being inhaled.

Molds

Molds commonly exist in nature and can breed in most humid environments. They can be found in dead leaves, food, bathrooms and even refrigerators.

Allergic Rhinitis

Causes itchy nose, stuffy nose, sneezing and runny nose. As a result, daily life is severely affected.
