What is Allergen

Most of us are familiar with the word allergen but what does allergen really mean? Allergen is actually a term for any substance that causes allergy. While different people react differently towards certain types of allergen, the severity of the reaction differs from individuals.

There are many different types of allergen from dust mite to food. An allergic reaction can be caused by any form of direct contact with an allergen from inhalation, indigestion to event a direct contact (touching).

There are also seasonal allergy where a person would be particularly sensitive towards that part of the year due to the reason because some trees pollinate during that time of the year.  Symptoms of a seasonal allergy can include sneezing, runny nose or even scratchy throat.

However, do not fear as most allergy can be treated through either over the counter medications, antihistamines or other treatments.
