  • Asthma
    Asthma is a common long term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs.
  • Atopic dermatitis
    Atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as atopic eczema, is a type of inflammation of the skin (dermatitis).
  • Peanut allergy
    Peanut allergy is a type of food allergy to peanuts.
  • Allergen
    An allergen is a type of antigen that produces an abnormally vigorous immune response in which the immune system fights off a perceived threat that would otherwise be harmless to the body.
  • Aspirin-induced asthma
    Aspirin-induced asthma is also termed Samter's triad, Samter's syndrome, aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD), and recently by an appointed task force of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology/World Allergy Organization (EAACI/WAO) Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs-exacerbated respiratory disease (N-ERD).
  • Pseudoallergy
    A pseudoallergy is a condition named for its similar presentation to a true allergy, though due to different causes.
  • Allergic rhinitis
    Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, is a type of inflammation in the nose which occurs when the immune system overreacts to allergens in the air.
  • Rhinitis
    Rhinitis or coryza is irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose.
  • Dermatitis
    Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a group of diseases that results in inflammation of the skin.
  • Latex
    Latex is a stable dispersion (emulsion) of polymer microparticles in an aqueous medium.
  • Bee sting
    A bee sting is a sting from a bee (honey bee, bumblebee, sweat bee, etc.).
  • Cold urticaria
    Cold urticaria (essentially meaning "cold hives") is an allergy where hives (urticaria) or large red welts form on the skin after exposure to a cold stimulus.
  • Pollen
    Pollen is a fine to coarse powdery substance comprising pollen grains which are male microgametophytes of seed plants, which produce male gametes (sperm cells).
  • Drug allergy
    A drug allergy is an allergy to a drug, most commonly a medication.
  • Angioedema
    Angioedema, also known as angiooedema, Quincke's edema, and angioneurotic edema, is the rapid swelling (edema) of the dermis, subcutaneous tissue, mucosa and submucosal tissues.
  • Hives
    Hives also known as urticaria, is a kind of skin rash with red, raised, itchy bumps.
  • Toxic epidermal necrolysis
    Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), also known as Lyell's syndrome, is a rare, life-threatening skin condition that is usually caused by a reaction to drugs.
  • Contact dermatitis
    Contact dermatitis is a type of inflammation of the skin.
  • Allergic conjunctivitis
    Allergic conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva (the membrane covering the white part of the eye) due to allergy.
  • Jarisch–Herxheimer reaction
    The Jarisch–Herxheimer reaction is a reaction to endotoxin-like products released by the death of harmful microorganisms within the body during antibiotic treatment.
  • 5-oxo-eicosatetraenoic acid
    5-Oxo-eicosatetraenoic acid (i.e. 5-oxo-6E,8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetraenoic acid; also termed 5-oxo-ETE and 5-oxoETE) is a Nonclassic eicosanoid metabolite of arachidonic acid and the most potent naturally occurring member of the 5-HETE family of cell signaling agents.
  • Skin allergy test
    Skin allergy testing is a method for medical diagnosis of allergies that attempts to provoke a small, controlled, allergic response.
  • Platinosis
    Platinosis is an allergy-like reaction to exposure to soluble salts of platinum.
  • Oral allergy syndrome
    Oral allergy syndrome (OAS) is a type of food allergy classified by a cluster of allergic reactions in the mouth in response to eating certain (usually fresh) fruits, nuts, and vegetables that typically develops in adults with hay fever.
  • Aeroallergen
    An aeroallergen (pronounced aer·o·al·ler·gen) is any airborne substance, such as pollen or spores, which triggers an allergic reaction.
  • Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy
    The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy is a professional body of clinical immunologists, allergy specialists and immunology scientists in New Zealand and Australia that aims to "advance the science and practice of clinical immunology and allergy, by promoting education and the highest standard of ethical medical practice.
  • Skeeter syndrome
    Skeeter syndrome is a localized allergic reaction to mosquito bites, consisting of inflammation and sometimes fever.
  • Alain de Weck
    Alain L. de Weck, (July 26, 1928 – April 8, 2013), was a Swiss immunologist and allergist.

  • Betamethasone/dexchlorpheniramine
    Betamethasone/dexchlorpheniramine (trade names Betadexin, Celestamine) is a drug containing betamethasone and dexchlorpheniramine maleate to treat allergic conditions.
  • Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose
    Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose, commonly known as alpha gal, is a carbohydrate found in most organisms' cell membranes.
  • Guinea pig maximisation test
    The Guinea pig maximisation test (GPMT) is an in vivo test to screen for substances that cause human skin sensitisation (i.e. allergens).
  • Aquagenic urticaria
    Aquagenic urticaria, also known as "water allergy" and "water urticaria", is a rarely diagnosed form of physical urticaria.
  • Latex allergy
    Latex allergy is a medical term encompassing a range of allergic reactions to the proteins present in natural rubber latex.
  • Hygiene hypothesis
    In medicine, the hygiene hypothesis is a hypothesis that states that a lack of early childhood exposure to infectious agents, symbiotic microorganisms (such as the gut flora or probiotics), and parasites increases susceptibility to allergic diseases by suppressing the natural development of the immune system.
  • Desensitization (medicine)
    In medicine, desensitization is a method to reduce or eliminate an organism's negative reaction to a substance or stimulus.
  • Stallergenes
    Stallergenes is a global pharmaceutical company with leading innovation, provider of allergy solutions all around the world.
