Allergies are the most common of illnesses (after headaches that is) and allergies are reactions the body has towards certain elements in a person’s surroundings. Allergies are found on all sorts of organs including the eyes, the ears, the skin, the respiratory apparatus and the digestive tract. The allergic reaction is given when the body cannot withstand coming into contact with a substance and the immune system tries to kick it out. Sometimes your body does it because it senses a real threat and sometimes your body simply overreacts and causes you unnecessary pain.

As a result of trying to kick it out your body liberates into your bloodstream, wherever it was you came into contact with the agent, a chemical denominated as histamine. This chemical entity then surrounds the area and floods it resulting in the engorgement of such said area. This is where antihistamines, another set of chemical agents, (they can be pills, injection, eye drops…) act in preventing your body from making you uncomfortable or killing you.

Be careful before using antihistamines because despite the fact your body may overreact sometimes it does at a natural self defense mechanism. It is not recommended playing doctor. If you have more intrinsic questions you need answered about your allergies consult your doctor.

Migraines are headaches the only difference between a headache and a migraine is the intensity of the pain between the two. A headache in compared to a migraine is like taking walk in the park with a soft polished pebble between the soles of your feet and your shoe; it is annoying but does not hurt as much as a migraine. A migraine would resemble something half way between a walk in hell and a walk on burning coals. The treatment for a migraine is different to the one a headache receives.
