Allergologists diagnose and treat various types of abnormal body reactions to allergy-causing external stimuli (allergens).
The most common ones include the following:
- Food allergens – introduced into our body with the food we ingest;
- Contact allergens – the most frequent sensitisers to our skin;
- Inhalation allergens – inhaled through the respiratory system (most commonly dust);
- Drugs – various types of medication, antibiotics, and anaesthetics.
