Allergic reactions are hypersensitive to patient contact with certain chemicals or particles answers. The substance that causes this reaction is call Allergic reactions are hypersensitive to patient contact with certain chemicals or particles answers. The substance that causes this reaction is called an allergen. When the patient contact with the allergic substance occurs, the first thing that happens is that the immune system responds by automatically releasing large numbers of antibodies called IgE (immunoglobulin E). But after a long period of exposure to the allergen, the allergic reaction is materialized. The causes of allergies are varied (seller's genetic tendency to allergies), and types (foods, pollen, animals, dust mites, insect bites, etc.).

Second, the intradermal skin test, which involves injecting a small amount of allergen into d ela skin and see if there is any reaction. It is most used to detect allergy to a specific substance.

Vaccines are a number of drugs used as a preventive measure in the occurrence of diseases and allergies. When germs enter our body, the immune system recognizes them as foreign substances (antigens agents); therefore, the system itself is responsible for putting the production of the required amount of antibodies up to combat these antigens. Based on this process, the vaccines contain weakened or killed antigens that stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies. That way, the body is ready to fight germs or viruses for which you have been vaccinated. In the infant stage an immunization schedule for common diseases (and even some already eradicated in some parts of the world) is planned and every age is assigned the corresponding. For adults a series of seasonal vaccines (such as flu, for example) and a number of compulsory vaccinations before traveling to certain countries in other continents that may involve the risk of transmission of diseases of these areas are established. ...
