What Are Allergies.
What Body Systems Are Affected?
Immune SystemAllergies and the reactions they cause affect the immune system. This is where the allergy starts and the conditions a malfunction of the immune system.
Allergies affect the integument system when a patient interacts with their trigger(s). This system usually does not erupt in hives and turn red.
The respiratory system is affected when a patient interacts with their trigger(s). This system normally functions by taking oxygen in and carbon dioxide out of the body but allergies restrict this.
The nervous system is affected when a patient interacts with their trigger(s). This system usually allows one to feel and to use their senses. Usually the eyes allow you to see but when someone has a reaction they can become itchy and red.

Treatment for allergies
Treating AllergiesTreating allergies is a tough business. One of the only ways to get rid of allergies would be to grow out of them, which isn't really a treatment at all. The other and only other way to treat allergies is to build immunity. Building immunity can be a long process, sometimes it might be easy, building immunity to Hay Fever just requires you to be outside. Or building immunity could be tough, like in most cases. These tough cases are treated by a series of injections that can take along time. These injection each include mall amounts of the allergen, this system works by trying to make the body less sensitive to the allergen.
