Allergy & Immunology: Conditions

There are almost as many allergies as there are things to be allergic to, and many people are allergic to more than one thing. Here is a list of the most common allergens:

Environmental Allergies: This includes pollen from plants, which can be year-round or seasonal, dust mites, mold spores, and others.

Food Allergies: Many adults and children are allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, food dyes and additives, and more.

Pet Allergies: It’s not the pet, but the dander from their skin and fur that causes an allergic reaction.

Medication Allergies: This may include sulfa-based drugs, antibiotics like penicillin, and others.

The symptoms created by an allergic reaction can differ among individuals, but there are several that are more common than others. If you are having an allergic reaction, you may experience:
