Allergies to Chemicals in Carpet Cleaners

Allergies to Chemicals in Carpet Cleaners

In recent years, many families turn to carpet cleaners. Carpet cleaners are a great way to get the most out of that carpet, keep them clean, and looking better. But, many of the chemicals that they use can be problematic. The chemicals are designed, obviously, to clean the carpets, but what we find is, people can have allergic reactions, especially children. Children roll around. They play with the pet. They play with their cars. They’re on the carpet. When they’re on the carpet, they can have difficulties associated with it, and that can cause allergic reactions. That can be very problematic down the road.

What is the Role of Benadryl?

What is the Role of Benadryl?

Just what is the role of Benadryl when it comes to allergies? Benadryl has a lot of advantages. The drug is very good to be used to reduce the problems associated with allergy; the itching, the runny eyes, the redness, all of those things. But, one of the problems of Benadryl is that it can lead to drowsiness and the higher the dose you take of Benadryl, the greater the problem. That is the limiting factor. Also, Benadryl can be converted with calamine lotion. That combination, actually called Caladryl, can be effective in dealing with poison ivy.

Wheal and Flare of Allergy Symptoms

Wheal and Flare of Allergy Symptoms

One of the classic symptoms associated with an allergy is the “wheal and flare.” It’s the “wheal and flare” that actually is the sign that there’s something there bothering the skin. Relax…that’s okay. It means that our bodies are actually fighting back in some way, and our bodies are making some sort of reaction. Wheal and flare is nothing to be frightened of. It’s certainly just part of a normal reaction in the body where we see an offending agent, and we somehow aggressively try to attack it.

Allergies To Penicillin

Allergies To Penicillin

It’s a drug that seems to have been around forever but it’s actually since the mid-1900s. We’re talking about penicillin. Penicillin is a very effective antibiotic that’s still used in many cases, however, it’s usually a variant form of penicillin. It is an antibiotic, though, that does have some allergic reactions to it. Many people will tell doctors that penicillin is one of their allergies and that means doctors have to be very careful about drugs that are similar to it.

Jewelry and Nickel Allergies

Jewelry and Nickel Allergies

Nickel allergy is one of those things that we don’t see a lot of. Obviously, people aren’t putting nickel and holding it to their skin. However, some jewelry actually has nickel as a part of it, and the jewelry that does, actually, can cause problems with allergies. One of the things with people who have nickel allergy is to make sure they check their jewelry and see what it’s made of. Sometimes, it’s very impossible. You’re obviously not going to melt it down, but what you need to do is figure out if it’s a constituent by whether it causes irritation or not. Then you have to look into it.

People Can Be Allergic to Sunlight

People Can Be Allergic to Sunlight

There are rare people who are allergic to sunlight. Again, this is a very rare case, but it’s something that is worth mentioning. Some people are allergic to sunlight in the sense that they’re more likely to burn. But, in cases where there are severe sunlight problems, people can actually have DNA issues associated with it. On a more simple level, however, if you’re someone who goes out in the sun and gets burned regularly, you may not have an allergy. You may just have a sensitivity, but down the road, that can cause long-term skin damage.
