- Anything can be an allergen. Common dust, pollen, plants, medications, certain foods, insect venoms, viruses, or bacteria are examples of allergens.
- Reactions may be in one spot, such as a small skin rash or itchy eyes, or all over, as in a whole body rash.
- A reaction may include one or several symptoms.
Most allergic reactions are much less serious, such as a rash from poison ivy or sneezing from hay fever. The reaction depends on the person but is sometimes unpredictable.
Allergies are very common.
So now I know a little bit about why my skin looks like a sick strawberry :(
