Most cases of allergic reaction characterized by the body such as stomach cramps, dizziness, and difficulty breathing. But some people with allergies may overreact and unusual when suffering from allergies. Here are 8 strange body reactions that occur due to allergies, among others:
1. Itchy rash
Report jerseys in 2004, published in journal Dermatitis, a boy aged 11 years developed an itchy rash on the abdomen and under his watch. It happened a week after her hose braces. Apparently, she is allergic to nickel in braces. Silver-colored metal braces are often mixed with other metals. Nickel is the metal most commonly trigger allergic reactions in the form of reddened skin, itchy, bumpy rash.
2. Feeling dizzy when adjacent to the mobile
Lots of household devices which work by utilizing electromagnetic waves such as mobile phones, the telephone, radio and television. But there are some people who claim to be sensitive to electromagnetic waves, which are often referred to as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). Reaction to EHS includes dizziness, nausea, headaches and drowsiness if a person who has contact with EHS electronic devices.
One case reported in 2011 in the International Journal of Neuroscience, researchers say that a woman doctor who claimed to have sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, developed pain, headaches and muscle twitching when adjacent to an electronic device. But others doubt the case, and research has not shown how the electromagnetic wave exposure can trigger allergic reactions.
3. Sores on the genitals
A sore on the genital skin that is unusual is not necessarily a sign of a sexually transmitted disease. According to a study published in January in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, a 42-year-old man had an allergic reaction after having sex with a partner who previously used drugs creamy vagina.
The man turned out to have sensitivity to co-trimoxazole, an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections and are often found on a vaginal cream. As a result, sores on the penis after having sex with his wife.
4. Tumors in the skin
Some people have permanent tattoos on his body may develop unusual skin growths. In 2008, researchers from the University of Maryland reported that there was a 38-year-old man developed a skin tumor one month later after having a tattoo.
In another study, published in 2010 in the Journal of Cutaneous Pathology, researchers analyzed eight tattooed people associated with skin tumors and found that red tattoo ink associated with most skin tumors. Experts say the skin of red ink regard as foreign substances that can trigger an immune response to reject it.
5. Blisters, skin itching and swelling
People who are allergic to sunlight may experience symptoms such as blisters, itching and swelling of the skin. According to a study in 2011 conducted by Researchers That in Germany, about 10 to 20 percent of people in Europe, the United States and Scandinavia were allergic to sunlight. According to the Mayo Clinic, abnormal reaction to sunlight is usually due to ultraviolet light.
6. Black spots on the skin
There is a rare case where there are black spots on the skin of people who are allergic to the resin, which is the result of the secretion of substances that may be carried by the wind plant and on the skin or clothing.
According to a 2008 study published in the journal Dermatitis, an allergic reaction to the researchers say it will cause the skin to appear dark spots that will be peeled off and it will heal without leaving scars.
7. Swelling of the tongue
Some fruits and vegetables contain proteins similar to those found in pollen, which trigger many allergic reactions in some people. Allergic reactions that occur such as itching or swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, lips, and throat.
Allergy is known as oral allergy syndrome, which occurs when the immune system recognize proteins in the fruit and vegetables together with pollen in the air. This syndrome affects up to one third of allergy sufferers and can occur at any time, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
8. Ass bright red
People who are exposed to metals, drugs and certain plants can be developed baboon syndrome. Syndrome is characterized by bright red rash, particularly on the buttocks, which is similar to the baboon's ass. Red rash can be found in the anus, genitals and inner thighs itchy and may develop into a sore, but this syndrome does not pose serious health risks.
According to the 2011 article in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, exposure to metals such as mercury, gold and nickel, can trigger a reaction. Recent studies have also shown that antibiotics and antibacterial are administered orally, intravenously or on the skin may also trigger a reaction.

1 Having too much of anything
We can become sensitive to virtually anything if we have a large enough dose of it. What constitutes too much is entirely subjective; everyone's threshold is different. But whatever that level is, going over it will cause a sensitivity reaction.
People often become sensitive to foods they most love, if they overindulge in those foods. Wheat sensitivity is very common among bread lovers.
Any stimulus has a threshold which, when exceeded, leads to sensitivity. The solution is usually to avoid the object you have become sensitive to for a period of time, after which the body will have time to recover.
In our example, the bread lover needs to abstain from bread made with wheat for a period of time. After that, it's likely that he or she will be able to eat bread again, in more moderate amounts, without a sensitivity reaction.
When the body is trying to cope with more demands that it can handle, any extra demands are a real struggle for the body.
The last straw (that broke its back) was not in itself the problem for the camel: it was the weight of the rest of the load rather than the straw itself. In the same way it's not necessarily the substance itself, which the body has reacted to, that is the problem for the body, but the overload of stress the body is bearing.
3 An association connecting the allergen, or object of sensitivity, to a situation that, on an unconscious level, the person wishes to avoid
When a person wants to avoid something but is unwilling to admit to this on a conscious level, the body will often find a way to help the person avoid it.
For example, my client had resentments against her mother and didn't want to visit her, but for various reasons wouldn't admit this to herself. Her mother owned a cat, and my client developed an allergic response to cats. This gave her a genuine reason to avoid visiting her mother, while allowing her not to admit the resentments to herself.
4 A particular congenital or genetic intolerance to a particular stimulus or allergen
There are some things that the body, by a biological necessity, can only cope with in small measures, or just needs to avoid, if at all possible.
These are the rarer cases, I believe, and this shouldn't be the escape clause that stops you taking action to heal the problem.
5 A mistake of the immune system
In fact, I suspect that the body doesn't really make a mistake at all.
What happens is that an intolerance or allergy develops at a time of stress overload. By the time stress levels have moderated the body has become accustomed to producing a particular response. There's no longer any need for the body to respond in this way, but the response has become habitual.
These are the easiest allergies to heal, and some skilled NLP practitioners and many kinesiologists can do this. (Kinesiologists, by the way, are generally able accurately to identify allergies and sensitivities.)
Healing allergies and sensitivities that require identifying and resolving specific experiences from the past, or reducing general stress levels, involves a particular expertise that very few therapists are able to offer.

Does your runny nose or rash make you think it is time to contact an allergist? Some people attribute their allergies to changes in the weather or different types of climates. While these solutions are possible it still makes more sense to seek out assistance from a professional. It takes the guesswork out of diagnosis and could be the first step to feeling better and avoiding future symptoms.
Finding an Allergist
Whether your doctor is suggesting that you see a specialist or you are looking for someone on your own, start by seeking out local options. You may want to contact your health insurance company to see which offices are covered and how much you will need to pay out of pocket. In some cases, you may need to get a referral from your primary care physician in order to have your appointment with the allergist covered.
Describing Your Symptoms
Allergies are not always consistent. Some times seem worse than others and if these issues are fairly new, you may not be able to see a pattern developing. Before you go in to meet the allergist, do the best that you can to write down the different symptoms that you are experiencing and when they occur. If sniffles show up only in the summertime or you notice that you tend to wheeze only when you are out in a friend's garden, your doctor needs to know. This can help him or her try to diagnose your issue.
While you will probably need some testing to confirm your doctor's suspicions, the more detail you can provide the better. Patients often struggle to come up with a good description while they are in the doctor's office. They can't remember the last time they felt this way or how long the symptoms last. A journal will help both you and the practitioner come up with some solutions.
Learning About Your Options
After talking to an allergist and going through some testing, you should have some idea of what you are struggling with and how you can deal with it. For some, this means medications during certain times of the year to avoid the symptoms. Others may need to go through a number of different treatments before there is any progress. Either way, you have some choices.
Before making a decision, consider weighing out all of your options. Learn all that you can about the medications and treatments that are offered. See if there are other side effects and then decide which of the treatments and procedures will give you the best results along with a clear bill of health. If there are no real solutions, you can always find a way to manage the symptoms and get the most out of your life, despite the allergies.
If you are tired of having to buy new air filters for your home or business every month an electrostatic air filter may be just what you need. The air inside your home or office contains particles which act as carriers for bacteria, viruses and other harmful pollutants. Reducing the pollutants can not only have a positive effect on your indoor air quality, but it could save you money on the maintenance of your HVAC (heating/cooling) equipment as well.
An electrostatic air filter is designed to trap unwanted air pollutants as they pass through your home or business HVAC system. These filters are the exact size as standard furnace filters. Unlike the cheap cardboard and poor design of a standard filter an electrostatic filter consists of five layers of filter media designed to offer high efficiency filtration.
Two layers are specially woven black polypropylene material. One layer is flexible polyurethane foam. Two additional layers are specially woven white polypropylene material. The media is then held in place by a rigid heavy duty aluminum channel with a welded wire cloth on the front and the back.
The combination of these layers forces the air to pass through creating a static charge which causes the media to attract and hold the nasty airborne particles. The polyurethane foam is manufactured to such a density that it is capable of capturing particles as little as.3 microns (1 micron = 0.0001 centimeter).
Additional advantages of an electrostatic air filter include a high dust weight resistance, low air flow resistance, no ozone is produced, no electrical power is required and all this while saving on HVAC maintenance costs.
The end result will trap up to 92% of the dust, pollen, mold spores, and animal dander that circulate in the HVAC system. While there are different brands the Steamatic electrostatic air filter rank among the top performing electrostatic filters on the market. These Air Filters require minimal maintenance by washing every 30 to 45 days. In order to work properly though you really do have to clean them. To remove oily, greasy or smoky deposits, it may be necessary to spray the filter with a good household detergent. If a detergent is needed make sure to rinse the filter well.
The filters are available in custom sizes to fit any unit, and also come with a lifetime guarantee. You will never have to buy another replacement filter again.

Even though most people are aware if allergies and the symptoms, not all people know that living a life with allergies is frustrating. Avoiding allergic triggers could be an easy solution, but it is not that effective for individuals that have symptoms associated to particles that are in the air. Read on for more information.
Be sure that you use your allergy medication as directed. Most of these medications need to be taken for many days for them to be effective. So don't expect immediate relief if you applied nasal spray once. Discuss the right dosage with your doctor.
Clean your house as thoroughly as possibly to eliminate even the smallest trace of mold. Mold is toxic and harmful to the human body. Since it is a common allergen, it is wise to get rid of it and keep it under control.
Many individuals dealing with allergies have been advised that humidifiers can be used at night to moisturize airways. This can actually be harmful, as humidifier mist will settle on carpeting and encourage mold growth. Nasal saline spray administered at bedtime is a far better idea.
Do not allow your pets to go outside very often on the days that the pollen count or humidity is extremely high. This is caused by pollen getting in the animal's fur and coming into your home, this can trigger a reaction.
To avoid cross contamination when it comes to allergy causing foods, try having the entire family eat allergy-free foods. Removing allergy-causing foods from your home eliminates the possibility that traces of these foods will get into an allergy sufferers meal during food preparation sessions.
A lot of people are allergic to their pets due to the dander they carry. If this is the case, give your dog or cat or any other pet a bath on a consistent basis. The allergen at issue here is pet dander, and you will run into a less of it after your pets have had a good wash. You should have someone else bathe your pet because you don't want to have a reaction, but if they are clean then that can reduce the chances of you becoming allergic.
If you suffer from a food allergy you should bring snacks that are safe to eat while traveling, so that you always have access to allergen-free food. When you are in an unfamiliar place, it can sometimes be difficult to find or read nutrition labels and ingredients - making it much easier to accidentally trigger a reaction from common ingredients, such as nuts and soy.
If you have not had success with your first few attempts to relieve your allergies, don't give up. There are other allergy medications available, other than oral medications. As an example, you might try an over-the-counter saline nasal spray or wash, eye drops for allergies, or prescribed medications, including leukotriene blockers or nasal steroids.
Get more probiotics into your system. A great way to do this is to eat yogurt or drink kefir. According to some experts, probiotics can help make your body more resistant to allergens. This would make your allergy symptoms much easier to deal with. You will find that these natural remedies offer widespread benefits to your body.
Cross-contamination of foods is a good way to spread allergies around, so be sure to keep foods separate if someone has allergies. If you bring foods into your home that another family member is allergic to, it is very tough to avoid contamination issues. Lessen the risk by not bringing those foods around.
Make sure your bathroom has a lot of ventilation to prevent mildew and mold. Mold and mildew like warm and damp areas. When you are done showering, put on your bathroom's fan and hang washcloths and towels on bars. If this isn't a option, open up a window in order to let fresh air circulate around.
Now that you know what you can do to fight you allergies, it's time to start doing it. Sniffling, sneezing, and coughing do not need to rule your life anymore. Rest assured that when the seasons change, you won't experience any change. Start by trying one or more of the helpful tips that you picked up from this informative article.
