An allergy is anything that causes your body to create an immune response that actually harms you. When you come into contact with a substance you’re allergic to, your body treats it like an invader and goes into overdrive. These reactions can be anything from a mild case of hives and headache to severe sinus or breathing issues, to something called anaphylaxis which can kill you and requires a shot of epinephrine from a device such as an EpiPen. For more mild allergies, there are many treatments from simply avoiding what you’re allergic to with food allergies to taking Benadryl or other over the counter medications for seasonal allergies. Some allergies require shots or drops under the tongue in hopes to retrain the immune system to no longer see the allergen as a threat, and “cure” the allergy. While some allergies are far more common than others, here’s a list of 25 Of The Most Common Allergies.
