There are several ways to receive allergy treatment. You can have creams, pills, or injections to get rid of the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Some of the symptoms for an allergic reaction are rashes, fever, shakes, cold or heat spells, swelling, closing of air passageways, and hives. You may realize what causes your allergy attacks right away, or it may take awhile for the reaction to happen. For instance, you may not realize you have a food allergen until you begin to digest it. A nice sweater may look good on you, but the wool fabric may cause your body to produce hives. This can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. You will need to find some relieve for your discomfort.
If you have a food allergy, you will most likely take a pill for the allergy. Sometimes like for those who are lactose intolerant, you may be able to take a pill before you eat milk products and be able to enjoy them allergy free. Most of the time, you want to avoid taking these foods so that you can reduce your chances of an attack. Reading labels for ingredients is extremely important for a person with a food allergy. You need to avoid an attack as much as possible. But, just in case you accidentally swallow something your allergic you, you can get an infection that will reduce your swelling and make you feel better.
Most allergens are cured with medicine in the pill form. Almost any type of allergy can be cured with a pill. It will reduce your swelling and bring you back to normal. The only type that is really cured with injections are those that cause swelling of your air-passageways like bee stings and food allergies.
If you have allergies to pet dander or certain fabrics, you will break out in hives most likely. You will need to carry your medicated creams with you to reduce the inflammation of your skin. Remember, everyone's different and reactions differently to certain things.
Fabric is just one of the many objects that will cause you to break out in a rash. In these cases, make sure that you have an anti-itch cream so that you can feel better and without the burning sensation of the itching; try not to scratch, since scratching will cause an infection to your skin.
