Allergy Symptoms

There are many types of allergies, but the most common include:

Listed below are mild and severe symptoms associated with each common type of allergy.

Because each individual can have unique reactions, your symptoms may differ or may include one, some, or all of those listed. Call your doctor if your symptoms are severe or persistent.

Food Allergies 

Symptoms of a food allergy usually occur within minutes after ingesting the food allergen, although some may not occur for several hours. The symptoms may be isolated only to areas around the mouth, lips and digestive tract, or they may involve other areas of the body. Foods that most commonly cause allergic reactions include milk, eggs, nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat.

Anaphylaxis 

Anaphylaxis is a sudden, severe, and potentially fatal allergic reaction with symptoms that affect various areas of the body. Symptoms usually appear very quickly after exposure to the allergen and can include intense itching all over the body, total body swelling, respiratory distress and can even lead to shock that is life threatening. Immediate medical attention is required. Anaphylaxis is most frequently caused by food, drug, or insect sting allergies.

Symptoms include:

In the most severe cases the sufferer can go into shock. Swelling of the bronchial tissues in the lungs can cause a person to choke and lose consciousness. A precipitous drop in blood pressure due to dilated (expanded) blood vessels can also result in a loss of consciousness.

In such cases of anaphylactic shock it is imperative that treatment be administered immediately. Without prompt attention anaphylactic shock can be fatal.

Respiratory Allergies 

Symptoms of a respiratory allergy usually occur within the first few hours after exposure and are generally trigged by airborne allergens such as plant pollens, animal dander, dust mites, and mold spores.

Contact Allergies 

Symptoms of a contact allergy usually occur within 30 minutes after exposure to the allergen, although symptoms may take up to several hours to appear. Common contact allergens include poison oak and poison ivy, latex, rubber, nickel, preservatives, dyes, medications, fragrances, and cosmetics such as hair dye and perfume. Nickel, a metal very commonly used in jewelry, buttons, hairpins, metal clips, zippers and snaps, is the source of much misery for those allergic to it. Exposure to the sun can also cause reactions.

Insect Sting Allergies 

Symptoms of an insect sting allergy usually occur within the first 15 to 30 minutes after the sting, although symptoms may take up to several hours to appear. Insect venoms that most commonly cause allergic reactions are from bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and fire ants.

Mild Symptoms:

Severe Symptoms:

It's important to note that many allergies share symptoms with other diseases and conditions. These similarities can make it difficult to determine the actual cause of your symptoms and the appropriate treatment. Make sure you visit your doctor or allergist to determine if your symptoms have been caused by an allergen or if there is something else causing your condition. Do not attempt to treat any condition until you know exactly what it is. Treating the wrong problem may worsen the situation or cause more serious problems. Proper diagnosis is essential.
