What are Skin Allergies?

The skin is the biggest organ at the human. One of the most common allergies is skin allergies. Usually the skin allergies are caused as reaction of the immune system and because it becomes hypersensitive. This is situation in which one your immune system does not recognize substances entered in your body. So, when it comes in contact with these "harmful" substances, your immune system produces huge amounts of antibodies. Usually, substances are not harmful as your immune system sees them.

These substances are also known as allergens and they may be affected from various causers such as pollen, dust, dust mites in the furniture, surfaces, pillows, beds or carpets. But, also these allergens may be found in the pets, especially in the dander of the dogs or cats. Also, there are and situation when skin allergies are shows on the skin, because of the usage some creams which contain substances on which you are allergic.

Process of Skin Allergy

In the moment when your body come in the contact with the potentially causers of the allergy it starts with reacting. Your body start with producing antibodies, which are also known as IgG or with other word, immunoglobulin G and IgM, immunoglobulin M. Thanks to these antibodies, your immune system becomes much sensitized so it starts with neutralizing of substances and help you to recover from the illness after few days.

During the time, your immune system is much ready for producing new antibodies which will react on the next entering causers of allergy. Still, when it is about skin allergies contained into the creams or some other products intended for skin care, cosmetics products, instead of IgG and IgM antibodies, your body will produce IgE, which is also called immunoglobulin E.

The reason of reacting of your body to the skin allergen is because, that your immune system recognized them as harmful for you when you entered them first time. So, next time when you enter them in your body, your body responds with producing huge amounts of the antibodies which are "fighting" for protecting your body. Usually reaction of the body caused with the skin allergens is red color of the skin.
