Allergies

Suffering from allergies? Not sure, about how to deal with it? Come to London Dermatology Clinic to get your skin allergy problem treated in the best way.
Allergies come in contact with your body by means of foreign substances such as pollen/bee venom/pet dander. Allergens are mostly found in drinks, environment or food. Different skin allergies are termed as dermatitis. The areas which are inflamed result in severe itchiness, causing sore feet and legs as these areas directly come in contact with allergens or irritants that cause dermatitis.

Signs and Symptoms of Allergies

When a person comes in contact with an allergen, then allergic reaction is not immediate. The immune system reacts to allergens and causes inflammation and irritation in skin. Symptoms and signs of allergies mainly depend on type of allergen. It may happen that allergic reactions occur in skin, gut, airways, sinuses, nasal passages and eyes.
The signs and symptoms of skin allergies may vary on individual basis for each patient. Allergies can develop at any age, but several individuals can also outgrow allergies over time. Environment plays a major role in development of allergies, but it involves a greater risk of developing different types of allergic conditions, if in case the patient has family history of allergies.
