Allergic Skin Reaction
Rashes, hives, and red skin — these are all signs of an allergic skin reaction. An allergy can happen to anyone, and we at Academic Alliance in Dermatology are here to help. Our team of knowledgeable dermatologists is expert in diagnosing, treating, and managing allergic skin reactions.
Causes of Allergic Skin Reactions
Various allergens can trigger an allergic skin reaction, including environmental allergens like pollen or dust mites, chemical irritants like soaps or detergents, and certain foods or medications. Some people may also be allergic to a type of clothing fabric, jewelry, or other items worn on the skin.
Symptoms of Allergic Skin Reactions
Symptoms may occur immediately after coming into contact with the allergen, or they may take time to appear and last for days. The symptoms of an allergic skin reaction can include:
- Bumps and blisters
- Dry patches of skin
- Any combination of these
Reactions can range from mild to severe. In most mild cases, symptoms go away on their own with home remedies and over-the-counter medications like antihistamines.
Some allergic reactions can be so intense that it may be difficult to breathe or swallow. If you experience any of these more serious reactions, seek emergency medical attention immediately.
