Symptoms Of AllergiesAlmost all of us have went through them at one time or another, right? The runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and sneezing…did i miss something here?

Symptoms of allergies can hit you anytime or anyplace, depending of course on what the allergy trigger is for an individual. Most allergies are not serious, and can be easily treated at home with homeopathic remedies, over the counter medications, or simple avoidance of the allergy triggers. However, there are some people who have serious allergies that can get life-threatening if they are not treated at once.

So far you can see why it is very important to understand the difference between mild, moderate and severe allergy symptoms, and when a health care professional should be involved in the treatment plan.

Symptoms Of Allergies – Mild

The milder symptoms of allergies are the ones that most of us will experience at one time or another. These might include itchy, watery eyes and nasal congestion. They can as well include a localized skin rash or hives. In the case of milder allergy symptoms, the condition doesn’t spread to other parts of your body.

Usually you can treat your symptoms effectively at home, by employing antihistamines or nasal decongestants. Other possible treatment options include eye drops, or topical creams for skin rashes. Most of the time, mild symptoms of allergies do not require a doctor’s attention, unless the condition lasts for longer than a couple of weeks.

Symptoms Of Allergies – Moderate and Severe

As symptoms of allergies turn moderate to severe, they can spread to other parts of the body. They can also become more dangerous and even life-threatening in some situations. Moderate symptoms of allergies might include itching and difficulty breathing.

More severe symptoms might include swelling in various areas of the body, which can make swallowing and breathing difficult and you also might experience digestive symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. In some cases mental clarity becomes compromised and you might feel dizzy, fuzzy or confused.

➡ If you start to experience any of these symptoms of allergies, it is imperative to seek medical care immediately. These symptoms could be an indication of anaphylaxis, which is a potentially life-threatening condition. But in most cases, symptoms of allergies are mild and can be effectively treated with over the counter medications and home remedies.

 However you should know what more severe allergy symptoms look like, so you will be prepared to seek medical help if the situation ever arises.

❗ Quick action can mean the difference between life and death for those who suffer from severe allergy symptoms, so take this matter seriously.
