Anaphylaxis reactions occur as a result of too much histamine being produced in the body as a result of immunoglobulin IgE antibody cells becoming mast cells as a result of the overproduction of histamine. This is what causes the allergic or anaphylaxis reaction or shock in the body, because the mast cells create the production of histamine and cause the inflammatory response. Since allergens are an immune system response it is the responsibility of the antibody called immunoglobulin IgE to destroy the harmful dubstance. The role of antibodies is to defend the body against virus and disease. They are produced by white blood cells in the body. The release of histamine in high levels causes symptoms such as: congestion, wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, rashes, hives, swelling and irritation. A antihistamine is used during an anaphylaxis reaction or shock. Antihistamines inhibit the activity of histamine in order to stop the allergic reaction symptoms. Antihistamines can be obtained with a prescription or without. The problem is that it may be difficult to swallow a pill or obtain a prescription antihistamine when you need to.
