Can you use Lubricant eye drop like Visine tears, dry eye relief as long as you want? Or they are same as decongestant drops? Does lubricant eye drops help clearing allergens?
Artificial tear yes: You can use artificial tear without an active medication for as long and as frequent as you want if it contains no preservative (single-use). If it does contain a preservative (multi-use) then using the drop more than 4 times daily may induce corneal edema. Artificial tear may reduce eye allergy symptoms by rinsing off the allergens and mediator and is not a vascular decongestant. ...Read more

Many things: Anything that causes an allergic reaction, usually an ige mediated reaction. Spring pollen allergens are tree pollens and molds. Summer is mostly grass and mold. Fall is ragweed, other weeds, and mold. Year round allergens in the house are dust mites, pet danders, and, wait for it, mold. Common food allergens are peanut, shellfish, nuts, wheat, and others. ...Read more
Immune response: In sensitization the immune system has recognized an allergen as foreign to the body & developed an elaborate mechanism to rid itself of the substance on re-exposure. Sensitization involves processing of allergen by dendritic cells that recruit t lymphocytes to instruct b lymphocytes to make a specific class of antibody, ige class, against the allergen. Ige binds to mast cells. You're sensitized. ...Read more
Depends: Nuts and peanuts are potent allergens but are nutritious. Rice snacks are not allergenic to most but have little nutrients. Since nearly any food can be an allergen, there is no totally allergen free snacks. As old greek saying stated " one man's meat another's poison". Read labels carefully is your best bet. In case of anaphylaxis, be sure to have 2 Epinephrine autoinjectors with you. ...Read more
Seasonal allergens: This is a question best answered by a board certified allergist. However, common allergens may depend on the season. Trees in early spring, grass in spring and summer, ragweed in fall, dust and molds are usually all year long, but most common in the winter when baseboard heating is used. If you are symptomatic and an antihistamine is not effective, see an allergist. ...Read more
Immunotherapy: The simple answer is allergy immunotherapy. This is typically done for airborne allergens or bees and is the process by which giving the patient back increasing doses of the allergen (s) they will have less and less symptoms.

No such device: There is really no such device. Some unscientific practitioners would test you with something like a galvanometer and have you hold the food in your hands to test for allergy. However this is only measuring electrical current from different foods having nothing to do with allergy. In fact, everyone would likely be test-positive for the same food although in varying degrees. ...Read more
Can you have anaphylactic rxn following first exposure to an allergen (eg medication) or is it usually after subsequent exposures?
Anaphylaxis..: On first exposure doesn't really happen, most of the time, as you need a sensitizing dose, i.e. Previous exposure, even in tiny amount, usually patients don't recall this previous exposure. Anaphylactoid reactions, can happen with certain drugs as morphine, x-ray dyes, and others, resembling exactly anaphylaxis without being an allergic reaction, and anaphylaxis can happen without a cause, rare. ...Read more
I'm allergeic to cats: Can constant exposure to cat allergen in my house (1 cat and 6 dogs) be the cause for prolonged/permanently enlarged nodes?
Overactive immunity: An allergy is an overactive immune response to allergens (typically proteins that are found in dust, mold, pollens, dander, foods, etc) that do not affect most people. The immune response is via ige (the allergic antibody) that triggers the release of chemical mediators (including histamine) when the allergen comes into contact with ige on mast cells in the nose, lung, GI tract etc. ...Read more
Depends how: The route of exposure, among other factors (including genetics) determines whether an individual becomes allergic or tolerant of an allergen. Once allergic, for over 100 yrs, it has been known that bypassing respiratory mucous membranes by giving allergy shots leads to tolerance; similarly, new ways of food desensitization involve gradually eating the food in measured amounts. ...Read more
HEPA: Is a type of air filter. Meeting the hepa standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft, and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States department of energy. To qualify as hepa by us government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometre ...Read more
Triggers allergies: An allergen is any substance, usually a protein but occasionally a carbohydrate, drug or metal, that upon entering the body is perceived by the immune system as being foreign. If the immune reaction results in immediate hypersensitivity like asthma or anaphylaxis or contact dermatitis like poison ivy or poison oak then that foreign substance has acted like an allergen. ...Read more
Elimination diet: Try an elimination diet. You'll remove suspected allergens like wheat or dairy for a week, if symptoms improve, try reintroducing them one at a time in 2-3 day intervals. If you react negatively to a food, you may have a sensitivity to that food type. You can also see a provider for "rast" blood testing. ...Read more
