Brief Answer: There are many Causes Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for coming to HealthCareMagic.Com. Skin allergies are problems where the skin undergoes swelling and inflammation due to contact with some material that is normally harmless. The immune system here is making a mistake and attacking something that is really not an infection. So it causes all the signs of an infection by accident. Treatment of such allergies is to firstly avoid the thing that is causing it. Secondly, topical creams are available that can control the swelling Is there a specific query I can help you with. Where have the allergies affected you? When did they start? Feel free to follow-up with me and tell me what is happening with you. I would love to hear from you again on Follow-up.
