Allergic reactions happen when your body reacts to an allergen and releases histamine. This causes various symptoms such as:
- a runny or blocked nose
- asthma or coughing fits
- inflammation or irritation of the eyes
- skin irritation
- swelling of the skin, lips or tongue
In more extreme circumstances, allergic reactions can cause anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis can cause swelling of the lips and tongue, breathing problems, collapse, and loss of consciousness. In some cases, anaphylaxis causes death, meaning it must always be treated as a medical emergency.
Anaphylactic shock will usually happen very soon after contact with an allergen, and is only treatable with emergency medical attention, which often includes an injection of adrenaline.
