pertaining to or caused by allergy.
a theory which attributes temporary increases in clinical severity of atopy to influences, such as concurrent disease or hormonal variations, acting to inhibit the mechanisms which normally regulate production of IgE at low levels following sensitization.
allergic contact dermatitis
results from percutaneous sensitization to allergens, usually haptens, that form covalent bonds with epidermal proteins, and the development of a delayed (type IV) hypersensitivity. Lesions typically correspond in location to the area of contact between allergen and skin which in animals is often in relatively hairless areas unless the allergen is presented in liquid form.
inflammation of the skin resulting from exposure to antigens to which the animal is hypersensitive. Usually involving immediate (type I) hypersensitivity but also commonly applied to reactions involving delayed (type IV) hypersensitivity. The specific skin reaction, lesions and pattern of disease produced depend on many factors including the type of allergen and immune mechanism, route of exposure and species differences. See also atopy
itch, allergic contact dermatitis (above).
equine allergic dermatitis
an intensely itchy dermatitis along the back of horses caused by sensitivity to the bites of the sandfly Culicoides brevitarsus and possibly other insects. Called also sweet itch, Queensland itch.
allergic inhalant dermatitis allergic reaction
an immune-mediated, adverse clinical response, following the inhalation, ingestion or injection of an antigen by a sensitized animal. Manifestations include urticaria
Patient discussion about allergic reaction
Q. what cause an allergic reaction?
A. Frankly? no ones actually knows for sure. What we do know, is that due to some reason the immune system of certain people, regard several non-harmful substances (e.g. peanuts, antibiotics, bee's venom) as an enemy and learn to react to it.
This tendency to develop abnormal responses to substances other people don't response to is called "atopy". It has a very strong genetic basis (i.e. it runs in families), and also depends on other factors such as the exposure to infections and the pattern of exposure to the allergen (the substance that causes allergy).
It's a very wide subject, far beyond the scope of my answer, so you may read more here:
Q. Is it common to get an allergic reaction in the eye from olive harvest? I've been around olive trees for a few hours and now feel like I have something in my eye but there is nothing there. can it be an allergic reaction? I dont get it from eating olives...
A. but in one eye..? that just doesn't seem likely. but i guess there is no reason not to try both treatments....
Q. I am worried about the allergic reactions I had from the Chinese herbal drug. I am worried about the allergic reactions I had from the Chinese herbal drug that I took for my arthritis…..are these safe?
A. Many people have some type of reaction to either a drug and even a supplement. You can check with your doc to get tested to see what your sensitivities are. Regarding arthritis, no milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, anything with milk for starters, AVOID like the plague! Suagr consumption too will raise hell with it. There is a product that someone I knew took, called, "Cell Guard" which he bought at a health food store or Whole Foods. After a couple of months, he was pain free. Its worth a try! Cell Guard is made with SOD or "superoxide dismutase"More discussions about allergic reaction
Studies have shown that SOD can play a critical role in reducing internal inflammation and lessening pain associated with conditions such as arthritis! Check it out! Let me know how you do!
