What is an allergy?

An allergy, is your immune system's overreaction to a substance, or allergen, that is typically harmless to most individuals. The immune system will launch a response to any allergens by releasing chemicals known as histamines, that then cause an allergic reaction.

What Causes Allergies?

Allergies are very common in both adults and children and can be caused by environmental factors and oftentimes genes. Typical allergens include:

Allergens are grouped according to what triggers a reaction or the season in which symptoms usually occur for the patient. A person is more likely to suffer from allergies if at least one of their parents is allergic. If this applies to you and you have also been experiencing symptoms of allergies, it may be wise to seek allergy testing. Our Maryland allergy clinic provides full allergy testing, diagnosis, treatment, and preventative maintenance to manage your allergies.
