Urticaria:It is a skin rash or dark red raised itchy bumps caused by viral allergies and also due to pressure, sunlight, temperature etc
Plant allergies: Poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac are plants that contain an irritating, oily sap called urushiol
    Urushiol triggers an allergic reaction when it comes into contact with skin, resulting in an itchy rash, which can appear within hours of exposure or up to several days later
    A person can be exposed to urushiol directly or by touching objects -- such as gardening tools, camping equipment

Insect sting allergies:Insects such as honeybees, yellow jackets, hornets, wasps, and fire ants
     While not everyone is allergic to insect venom, reactions in the skin such as mild pain, swelling, and redness may occur with an insect sting

Pet allergies: Pet allergy occurs when your immune system reacts to certain animal proteins
    This reaction triggers inflammation in the lining of your nasal passages causing sneezing, runny nose and other signs and symptoms usually associated with hay fever

Latex allergy:The protein in rubber can cause an allergic reaction in some people
    This reaction can range from sneezing to anaphylactic shock, which is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention
    The thin, stretchy latex rubber in gloves, condoms and balloons is high in this protein. It causes more allergic reactions than products made of hard latex rubber (like tires)

Mold allergy: Mold is present in most indoor and outdoor spaces, and in many foods
    Overreaction of immune system when you breathe in mold spores
    This reaction triggers a cascade of reactions that lead to allergy symptoms like cough, itching of the eyes and cause other symptoms that make you miserable
    In some people, mold allergy is linked to asthma and exposure causes restricted breathing and other airway symptoms

Cosmetic allergies: Products such as moisturizers, shampoos, deodorants, make-up, colognes, and other cosmetics have become part of our daily grooming habits
    Although cosmetics can help us feel more beautiful, they can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions
    Certain ingredients used in cosmetics, such as fragrances and preservatives, can act as antigens triggering an allergic reaction

Drug allergies:Drug allergies are a group of symptoms caused by allergic reaction to a drug
    Adverse reactions to drugs are common, and almost any drug can cause an adverse reaction
    Reactions range from irritating or mild side effects such as nausea and vomiting to life-threatening anaphylaxis

Food allergy:

    The cause of food allergies is related to your body making a type of allergy-producing substance called immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to a particular food
    Although many people have a food intolerance, food allergies are less common. In a true food allergy, the immune system produces antibodies and histamine in response to the specific food.
