Baylor Scott & White Health has allergy and immunology specialists (often called allergists) on the medical staff who can help identify your allergy triggers and manage your symptoms.
Las alergias son problemas del sistema inmune. Un alergeno es cualquier cosa que causa que el sistema inmune del cuerpo libere histamina, uno de los químicos que causan síntomas de alergia.
Most allergic reactions happen when the immune system reacts to a false alarm. Normally, the body defends itself against harmful things, such as viruses or bacteria. But the defenses also attack mild things, so allergy symptoms can be caused by dust, mold, pollen and other environmental triggers at various times of the year (often called seasonal allergies), depending on your sensitivities.
