What Is Allergy

An allergy is an autoimmune response called a hypersensitivity reaction. This means that the body's immune system is acting in a way that is detrimental or has consequences that that affects the body- The body's immune system "overreacts" to a particular trigger, and thus your immune system is called "hypersensitive."

The severity of this overreaction of the immune system differs from person to person. Some people may have a mild reaction (sometimes only referred to as a sensitivity and not an allergy), while others may have severe anaphylactic reactions that can be life-threatening.

Eczema, food allergies, allergic rhinitis, medication allergies and anaphylactic reactions can all be grouped under the term "allergy." No specific causes of allergies have been found although genetics play the biggest role in predisposing to allergies.

People who suffer from allergies have different triggers that cause an allergic reaction. The first time someone is exposed to a trigger, the body's immune system forms antibodies against the particular allergen. This is called sensitization.

When the immune system encounters the allergic trigger for the second time, the antibodies will react to the trigger and cause an allergic response. Sometimes the allergic response can worsen with every exposure, for example, seen in patients with bee-sting allergies. The first bee sting might not be severe, but the third or fourth reaction could be life-threatening. Most of the time, the allergic response stays the same in severity.

Often people who suffer from allergies had what we call an atopic triad in childhood- this triad of allergies include atopic dermatitis (eczema), food allergies and asthma.
 

What Is Dermatitis

Dermatitis means inflammation of the skin. However, it encompasses a range of ailments caused by different factors. This condition is typically characterized by dry, swollen, itchy, and red skin, and the good news is that this isn’t contagious.

The severity of dermatitis ranges from mild to severe; it may last a long time or may come as a sudden flare-up; some forms are more common in adults whereas others are more common in children. Some cases of dermatitis flare up according to seasons, exposure, or even stress.

What Is Eczema

Eczema also called atopic dermatitis, is a set of skin conditions that cause the skin inflammation and irritation.

It commonly appears on face, wrists, hands, knees or feet. It may also affect other areas.

Eczema is not contagious; hence there is no risk of it getting spread from one person to another.

What Is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease. In psoriasis, skin cells multiply 10 times faster than their normal. The volume of underlying cells, which reach the surface of the skin and die, causes red and raised plaques. These are covered with white scales. Psoriasis usually occurs on elbows, knees, and scalp, though it may also occur on palms, soles of feet or torso.

There are mainly five types of psoriasis: plaque, inverse, guttate, pustular, and erythrodermic.

What Is Acne

  • Acne, known as Acne Vulgaris, is one of the commonest dermatological complaints.
  • Acne is especially prevalent during puberty and young adulthood, although some people may still suffer from it into their middle years. Acne is known in the general population as "pimples."
  • Acne occurs when skin pores are blocked by excess sebum (natural oil produced by the skin) and by dead skin cells. As the sebum builds up, it causes inflammation of the surrounding skin. The lump that forms under the skin because of this blockage is called a comedo. A group of lumps is called comedones.
  • If not treated properly acne can lead to permanent scarring. Acne also has important psychological implications such as low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, especially in youths.    

What Is Dandruff

Dandruff is a scalp condition in which skin of the scalp becomes dry, flaky and itchy. It is a phenomenon when scalp sheds extra skin cells. Dandruff isn’t a threatening condition but it can be embarrassing sometimes. 

Symptoms Treated With HALOX ES OINTMENT 10GM

What Are The Symptoms Of Allergy

The symptoms of allergies are because of a release of a substance called histamines from the immune system.

The symptoms of allergies depend on the type of allergy:

Acute anaphylaxis may be potentially life-threatening. This may present with a red skin rash, swelling of the airways, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, cardiovascular collapse and will lead to death if not treated.

A red itchy skin rash (wheal and flare reaction) is common in food allergies, chemical allergies (e.g. latex allergy), medication allergies and allergic reactions to insect bites.

Food allergies may present with a skin rash, itchy or swollen airways or gastrointestinal upsets.

Allergic rhinitis presents with a runny nose, teary eyes, sneezing and nasal congestion. Allergic rhinitis is one of the medical conditions that have the worst impact on quality of life.

Eczema usually presents in childhood with a dry, itchy rash, usually affecting the skin over joint surfaces.

What Are The Symptoms Of Dermatitis

In dermatitis, the skin becomes dry, itchy, red and sometimes swollen. However, there are different types of dermatitis affecting different parts of the body and exhibit varying symptoms.

Types of dermatitis and their symptoms:

  • Atopic dermatitis or eczema: Generally, children get atopic dermatitis in the first year. Skin becomes dry and has scaly patches. This may be seen on forehead, cheeks and scalp. Infants are often seen rubbing against the bedding to relieve themselves of the itching sensation. Sometimes excessive scratching can lead to skin infection.
  • Contact dermatitis: We get this type of dermatitis when something touches our skin and we get a rash. It can either be an allergen which causes the rash (poison ivy, nickel, jewellery, makeup) or an irritant (diaper rash, acid, and soaps). The skin shows an allergic or irritant reaction when it comes in contact with some substances. The skin may develop burns, blisters or may just be itchy.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is commonly called cradle cap. Here the skin appears scaly and is greasy and reddish or yellowish in colour. This condition is seen in infants and appears on the scalp, face and genitals.
  • Statis dermatitis: This is caused due to poor blood circulation in legs. This causes swelling and may further lead to skin irritation, especially around the ankles.
  • Dyshidrotic eczema: This involves a group of skin problems in which the skin cannot protect itself which results in itchy, dry skin.
  • Nummular dermatitis: This generally appears after the skin has had an injury like an insect bite, a burn or an abrasion. The skin develops coin or oval-shaped sores which last for weeks or months.
  • Neurodermatitis: This condition begins with an itch on the skin of different parts of the body including genitals. Stress is believed to be the cause for this.

What Are The Symptoms Of Eczema

Eczema, irrespective of the part of body affected, has following symptoms:

  • Itching
  • Rashes
  • Dark, thick and patchy skin
  • Cracked and rough skin

What Are The Symptoms Of Psoriasis

Symptoms of psoriasis vary from patient to patient, depending upon the type of psoriasis they have. The common symptoms of plaque psoriasis are:

  • Red skin plaques covered with silver coloured loose scales. These plaques can be painful, itchy and may sometimes bleed after cracking. In severe psoriasis, the plaques of irritated skin grow and merge with each other, and cover larger areas.
  • Disorder of toenails and fingernails, including pitting and discoloration of nails.
  • There may be swelling and pain in joints due to psoriatic arthritis. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Acne

  • Acne starts out as comedones. People with acne present with blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules (commonly known as “pimples”) or nodules (lumps that form under the skin). Often people with acne suffer from an oily skin complexion.
  • Acne is classified as either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne.
  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne. They can either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads). The color of a blackhead is not debris or an indication of bad skin hygiene, but melanin (the skin’s surface pigment).
  • Inflammatory acne occurs when bacteria invade the skin, causing papules or pustules (pimples). Nodules and cysts are also inflammatory lesions. Nodules are deeper skin lesions, while cysts are fluid-filled lumps. 
  • Acne usually presents in common areas of increased oil production such as the forehead, nose, chin, chest and upper back.
  • Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the amount and type of lesions. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Dandruff

The symptoms of dandruff are easily recognised such as:

  • Dry flaky skin on the scalp.
  • Visibility of the flakes on the shoulders, eyebrows, hairline and nose.
  • Itchy scalp.
  • Greasy scalp.

Causes of diseases where HALOX ES OINTMENT 10GM is used

What Are The Causes Of Allergy

Genetics is the biggest link to allergies.

There has recently been much discussion about the increasing prevalence of allergies seen in the developed world. This increase is thought to be attributed to a decreased exposure to allergens and toxins in childhood, because of "over-hygienic" parenting. This is referred to in the media is the "hygiene hypothesis."

Children who are exposed to more bacteria and allergens in childhood have shown to have lower incidences of allergies.

Triggers for allergies are numerous. The common triggers are:

  • House dust mites and dust
  • Pollen and grass
  • Animal dander
  • Nuts- especially peanuts
  • Milk and soy
  • Wheat
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish and iodine-containing foods
  • Medications such as penicillin, sulphonamide
  • Chemicals such as latex
  • Insect toxins such as bee-stings

What Are The Causes Of Dermatitis

Causes of dermatitis vary depending on the type of dermatitis.

  • Contact dermatitis: Happens when a person comes in contact with an irritant or an allergen.
  • Atopic dermatitis: This condition is caused by a combination of factors like environmental factors, dry skin, bacteria or genetic factors.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is due to the presence of yeast in oil glands of the skin and gets worse in spring and winter season. This may be genetic in some people.
  • Statis dermatitis: Poor blood circulation in the skin, especially in the lower legs and feet causes this condition.

Some factors which are known to trigger episodes of dermatitis are:

  • Environmental changes.
  • Stress.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Irritating substances.

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.

What Are The Causes Of Psoriasis

  • Weak immunity, in which white blood cells start attacking skin cells mistakenly.
  • Genetic.

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Dandruff

There are various causes of dandruff like:

  • Dry skin: People with dry skin are prone to dandruff. Dandruff occurs due to dry skin mostly in winters. These flakes are often small and itchy but not oily.
  • Not Brushing the hair regularly: People who do not brush or comb their hair regularly tend to have more dandruff, as brushing can help in the shedding of the dead skin cells from the scalp.
  • Not shampooing when required: When one does not shampoo their hair properly and regularly, the oil and dead skin cells keep on accumulating that results in dandruff.
  • Reaction due to certain hair care products: Some people are allergic to certain hair care products which might cause an adverse reaction resulting in dandruff.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: Seborrheic dermatitis is one of the most common causes of dandruff. In this condition greasy, the red scalp is covered with white and yellow flaky scales.

What Are The Symptoms Of Allergy

The symptoms of allergies are because of a release of a substance called histamines from the immune system.

The symptoms of allergies depend on the type of allergy:

Acute anaphylaxis may be potentially life-threatening. This may present with a red skin rash, swelling of the airways, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, cardiovascular collapse and will lead to death if not treated.

A red itchy skin rash (wheal and flare reaction) is common in food allergies, chemical allergies (e.g. latex allergy), medication allergies and allergic reactions to insect bites.

Food allergies may present with a skin rash, itchy or swollen airways or gastrointestinal upsets.

Allergic rhinitis presents with a runny nose, teary eyes, sneezing and nasal congestion. Allergic rhinitis is one of the medical conditions that have the worst impact on quality of life.

Eczema usually presents in childhood with a dry, itchy rash, usually affecting the skin over joint surfaces.

What Are The Symptoms Of Dermatitis

In dermatitis, the skin becomes dry, itchy, red and sometimes swollen. However, there are different types of dermatitis affecting different parts of the body and exhibit varying symptoms.

Types of dermatitis and their symptoms:

  • Atopic dermatitis or eczema: Generally, children get atopic dermatitis in the first year. Skin becomes dry and has scaly patches. This may be seen on forehead, cheeks and scalp. Infants are often seen rubbing against the bedding to relieve themselves of the itching sensation. Sometimes excessive scratching can lead to skin infection.
  • Contact dermatitis: We get this type of dermatitis when something touches our skin and we get a rash. It can either be an allergen which causes the rash (poison ivy, nickel, jewellery, makeup) or an irritant (diaper rash, acid, and soaps). The skin shows an allergic or irritant reaction when it comes in contact with some substances. The skin may develop burns, blisters or may just be itchy.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is commonly called cradle cap. Here the skin appears scaly and is greasy and reddish or yellowish in colour. This condition is seen in infants and appears on the scalp, face and genitals.
  • Statis dermatitis: This is caused due to poor blood circulation in legs. This causes swelling and may further lead to skin irritation, especially around the ankles.
  • Dyshidrotic eczema: This involves a group of skin problems in which the skin cannot protect itself which results in itchy, dry skin.
  • Nummular dermatitis: This generally appears after the skin has had an injury like an insect bite, a burn or an abrasion. The skin develops coin or oval-shaped sores which last for weeks or months.
  • Neurodermatitis: This condition begins with an itch on the skin of different parts of the body including genitals. Stress is believed to be the cause for this.

What Are The Symptoms Of Psoriasis

Symptoms of psoriasis vary from patient to patient, depending upon the type of psoriasis they have. The common symptoms of plaque psoriasis are:

  • Red skin plaques covered with silver coloured loose scales. These plaques can be painful, itchy and may sometimes bleed after cracking. In severe psoriasis, the plaques of irritated skin grow and merge with each other, and cover larger areas.
  • Disorder of toenails and fingernails, including pitting and discoloration of nails.
  • There may be swelling and pain in joints due to psoriatic arthritis. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Acne

  • Acne starts out as comedones. People with acne present with blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules (commonly known as “pimples”) or nodules (lumps that form under the skin). Often people with acne suffer from an oily skin complexion.
  • Acne is classified as either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne.
  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne. They can either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads). The color of a blackhead is not debris or an indication of bad skin hygiene, but melanin (the skin’s surface pigment).
  • Inflammatory acne occurs when bacteria invade the skin, causing papules or pustules (pimples). Nodules and cysts are also inflammatory lesions. Nodules are deeper skin lesions, while cysts are fluid-filled lumps. 
  • Acne usually presents in common areas of increased oil production such as the forehead, nose, chin, chest and upper back.
  • Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the amount and type of lesions.

What Are The Causes Of Allergy

Genetics is the biggest link to allergies.

There has recently been much discussion about the increasing prevalence of allergies seen in the developed world. This increase is thought to be attributed to a decreased exposure to allergens and toxins in childhood, because of "over-hygienic" parenting. This is referred to in the media is the "hygiene hypothesis."

Children who are exposed to more bacteria and allergens in childhood have shown to have lower incidences of allergies.

Triggers for allergies are numerous. The common triggers are:

  • House dust mites and dust
  • Pollen and grass
  • Animal dander
  • Nuts- especially peanuts
  • Milk and soy
  • Wheat
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish and iodine-containing foods
  • Medications such as penicillin, sulphonamide
  • Chemicals such as latex
  • Insect toxins such as bee-stings

What Are The Causes Of Dermatitis

Causes of dermatitis vary depending on the type of dermatitis.

  • Contact dermatitis: Happens when a person comes in contact with an irritant or an allergen.
  • Atopic dermatitis: This condition is caused by a combination of factors like environmental factors, dry skin, bacteria or genetic factors.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: This is due to the presence of yeast in oil glands of the skin and gets worse in spring and winter season. This may be genetic in some people.
  • Statis dermatitis: Poor blood circulation in the skin, especially in the lower legs and feet causes this condition.

Some factors which are known to trigger episodes of dermatitis are:

  • Environmental changes.
  • Stress.
  • Hormonal imbalance.
  • Irritating substances.

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.

What Are The Causes Of Psoriasis

  • Weak immunity, in which white blood cells start attacking skin cells mistakenly.
  • Genetic.

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Dandruff

There are various causes of dandruff like:

  • Dry skin: People with dry skin are prone to dandruff. Dandruff occurs due to dry skin mostly in winters. These flakes are often small and itchy but not oily.

  • Not shampooing when required: When one does not shampoo their hair properly and regularly, the oil and dead skin cells keep on accumulating that results in dandruff.
  • Reaction due to certain hair care products: Some people are allergic to certain hair care products which might cause an adverse reaction resulting in dandruff.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis: Seborrheic dermatitis is one of the most common causes of dandruff. In this condition greasy, the red scalp is covered with white and yellow flaky scales.
