I get allergies really bad I wanted to know what causes allergies and is it an indication for something serious like a weaken immune system?
Yes and no.: Allergy develops because your immune system has been programmed to react to otherwise innocuous substances such as animal dander, pollen, dust mite,mold, food etc. As such, it should be considered a misguided immune not a weakened response. Having said that, people with allergy asthma are more prone to respiratory tract infection and in that sense the immune system is weak. ...Read more

Uncontrolled: Allergy symptoms in the upper airways, nose and sinuses, can lead to the picture you just described, being allergic to many things, you didn't specify if your allergy symptoms are due to things that you smell or breathe, or rather things that you eat, your best bet is seeking professional help, see an allergist, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck ...Read more
Can you see an allergist or immunologist to check for sun allergy skin reactions or immune disorders that cause them?
Many docs can: Reactions to sunlight (apart from sun burn) are uncommon. Allergists can help diagnose and treat an itchy sun rash called solar urticaria. Rheumatologists can help diagnose and treat sun-induced rashes in diseases like lupus. Of course, dermatologists can help diagnose and treat many skin conditions. Hepatologists and geneticists may also see some very rare diseases with sensitivity to uv light. ...Read more
I have bad allergies and a high IgE level (1300). Will this wear my immune system out over time? Also can allergies cause body aches and fatigue?
Maybe: Allergy is from a skewed immune reaction to otherwise innocuous substances- usually a protein. People with allergic asthma are more susceptible to respiratory infections for this reason. Allergy does not usually cause body aches although sleep disruption from your allergic conditions may cause body aches and fatigue. Uncontrolled asthma can cause fatigue. See an allergist. ...Read more
I have bad allergies. If allergies are caused by overactive immune system, why do I get sick so easy? 2 staph, sinus infect, HPV, MANY colds & flu.
Good question: allergy causes inflammation of mucus membranes /skin, this inflammation invites bacteria which colonize sinuses, skin and other areas causing chronic infection with frequent flare-ups, sometimes with the allergy there could be a subtle defect in the complex immune system which adds to the problem, you need to see a qualified allergist/immunologist for management,keep follow up with your doctor/ENT ...Read more

No: Allergic and autoimmune diseases are from misdirected immune responses and not because of the immune system is strong or weak. I think the question you may be asking is " Could a well regulated immune system help with allergies?", then the answer would be yes. In fact, that's what allergy shots do by shifting your immune response towards the normal range. ...Read more
Unrelated: allergies are rather due to over reactive immune system, boosting your immunity would help warding off an infection, although there is no such thing as boosting immunity, you're either immune competent or immune compromised, maintaining good immunity necessitates maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as simple as that, so good sleep, healthy diet, lots of fruits and vegetables, fresh air and exercise ...Read more
