Many of us are not even aware that we might be allergic to certain things. Some people are allergic to certain foods, others to certain materials, and several more to specific substances. In spring season, some people show grass allergy symptoms. Unless the allergy symptoms are very strong (which only happens if people have chronic allergies) many people suffer mild discomfort and may not necessarily know that they have allergies. So, what's the problem in that? How about this - If you don't treat your allergies in time by looking out for allergy symptoms, they might get worse over time and could lead to health complications, and in some cases could even be fatal. Reason enough to start paying attention to the allergy symptoms? Good. Let's look at some of the more common symptoms of allergy then.

Mold Allergy Symptoms

Mold is commonly found in areas that are slightly or excessively wet. Bathroom floors, sink tiles, garden walls, shower stalls, washing machines, refrigerators, air conditioners vaults and other such places, provide the perfect setting for mold to grow (Mold can be toxic). Several people are allergic to mold. Here are some of the mold allergy symptoms:

* Runny noses
* Difficulty in drawing breaths
* Coughing (even blood, where chronic mold Is concerned)
* Sneezing
* Chronic headaches that lead to aggravated sinusitis.
* Eyes that are red, swollen and itching.
* Skin rash and redness.
* Developing hives on the body.
* Dizziness.
* Chest blockage
* Memory loss
* Nausea and diarrhea.
* Pulmonary hemorrhage
* Anemia
* Postnasal drip
* Wheezing

One needs to administer proper mold allergy treatment for the same.

Yeast Allergy Symptoms

Yeast is a kind of fungi that grows in our bodies and is found in several foods as well. When the growth of yeast in our body increases, the body reacts by producing antibodies and antihistamines that leads to the allergy. Yeast that is present in foods like cheese, mushrooms, breads and others can further aggravate the allergy. The following are some symptoms of yeast allergy:

* Nasal congestion
* Headaches
* Ringing in the ear.
* Inability to concentrate.
* Skin rash
* Runny nose
* Abdominal pain
* Itchy skin
* Digestion problems
* Diarrhea
* Flatulence
* Eczema
* Constipation
* Depression
* Sore throat
* Red and itchy eyes
* Heartburn
* Chronic bouts of coughing
* Fatigue
* Thrush on tongue

Gluten Allergy Symptoms

There are several foods that can lead to food allergies. Gluten is a protein substance that is found in cereals like wheat, rye, oats and others. It is that substance that helps to bind the dough together. Since it is a tough substance, many people find it difficult to digest and therefore develop gluten intolerance symptoms. Here are some of them given below:

* Bloating
* Indigestion
* Stomach Cramps
* Headaches
* Diarrhea
* Irregular and bad stools
* Anemia
* Hives
* Skin rash
* Depression
* Osteoporosis
* Eczema
* Swollen mouth
* Irritability
* Unexplained weight loss
* Flatulence
* Rectal bleeding
* Heartburn
* Asthma
* Joint pain

This is only one aspect of food allergies. There are several such other foods that can cause symptoms of an allergy in some people. Some of these are - diary products, alcohol, peanuts which can cause peanut allergy, shrimps, eggs, other nuts, soy which can cause soy allergy symptoms, lactose etc.

Chlorine Allergy Symptoms

Chlorine allergies are most common in reference to chlorine that is added in swimming pools. But that's not all - chlorine is also found in foods, medicines, textiles, metals, dyes, paper, explosives, water purifiers and several other substances. We develop chlorine allergies just like we develop mold allergies - our immune system produces antibodies to fight chlorine packed substances. Here are some chlorine allergy symptoms:

* Difficulty in breathing.
* Coughing
* Sneezing
* Suffocation
* Asthma
* Wheezing
* Dry skin
* Itching and rashes.
* Peeling of skin
* Watery, red and swollen eyes.
* Pain in eyes.
* Burning and itching eyes.

It is easy to mistake these allergy symptoms for minor infections and the tendency to ignore them will be high. But killing that first instinct, if one learns to understand that these might be an underlying cause of some major condition and could lead to complications, then they'll be able to administer allergy relief and nip the bud before it gets too late! So the next time, keep your eyes open.
