What causes an allergic reaction?
When the body is exposed to an allergen, the immune system produces antibodies. While the substance may not be harmful, the immune system reacts as if it is. The reaction could be mild or life-threatening, and can inflame skin, sinuses, airways, or the digestive system, with symptoms ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening anaphylaxis. Allergy treatments performed at Orlando ENT Associates can help you manage minor or serious allergies to improve your health and quality of life.
