What are Allergies?
Skin allergies are a common condition that we see many of our patients come in for each week. Also known as allergic contact dermatitis, skin allergies are simply an allergic reaction that appears on the skin when our body has a sensitivity. Skin allergies can be presented in a variety of different ways including hives, blisters, dry and flaky patches of skin, redness, burning, itching, and swelling. If you find that your skin is sensitive and you’re unsure why, odds are your body is sensitive to something you’ve been exposed to. Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s expert medical team will be more than happy to help you find the cause of your skin allergies during your private consultation, so you can treat them at their source.
What Causes Allergies?
Allergic reactions occur when your body does not agree with a foreign product or substance its been exposed to. Exposure to something you’re sensitive to causes an inflammatory response from your immune system, creating the symptoms you experience like hives or itching. While the source of your allergies is dependent on your body’s natural chemistry, common allergies include sensitivity to soaps or laundry detergents, jewelry made of nickel or other metals, and perfumes and colognes. If you’re unsure what’s causing your allergies, we may recommend removing or replacing certain products from regular use to narrow down the possible culprits as part of your treatment plan.
