Strangest Allergic Reactions

Image allegic reactions

Allergies are sometimes tough to live with. They vary from the mild ones – sneezing and runny nose, to others which can be quite severe and result in dizziness, stomach cramps and difficulties in breathing. They can also be caused by various things, either by some particles in the air or food, or through skin contact. Whatever the cause or result, the best thing is to have a medical kit at hand or visit your doctor.

Swollen Tongue

People who suffer from hay fever, have to worry about other things besides the allergens found in the air. Various vegetables and fruits contain the protein that is similar to that found in hay pollen. Such fruits and vegetables can trigger allergic reactions and result in itchiness, swelling of the face, lips, mouth, tongue and throat. When this condition occurs, your immune system recognizes that protein and identifies it to one found in the air pollen. Moreover, this allergic reaction can be quite dangerous if you are not well informed about which fruits and vegetables contain that protein, and can result in anaphylactic shock and even death.

Red Bum Condition

The Baboon Syndrome is one strange, but common allergy among people. Usually, it is caused by being exposed to certain medications, metals and herbs or plants, and it results in a bright red rash on the bum. This uncomfortable, but not life threatening condition can appear on the genitals, perianal region or inner thighs and it is itchy and painful. It is usually caused by exposure to metals like mercury, nickel and gold, but it has been shown that even antibiotics and antibacterials taken orally, intravenously or applied on the skin can trigger this reaction.  

Dizziness Caused by Phone

Today, we are surrounded by technology and various devices, such as cell phones, flat screen TVs and mobile devices which expose us to the electromagnetic field (EMF) at the low frequency. However, even though the frequency is low, there have been cases of people who were sensitive to EMF. This condition is called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and people often feel dizzy, nauseated and have headaches and problems with sleep if they are exposed to electronic devices for some time. Whether EMS is an allergic reaction to electronic devices or not, people have divided opinions. Some believe such devices do cause pain and muscle twitching, while research has not yet shown any plausible results.

Skin Reaction to Tattoos

Tattoos are beautiful, but the allergies may spoil all the fun. A few studies have reported that people who got permanent tattoos have developed some strange growths on their skin. In all of the studies it has turned out that people developed skin tumor. After analyzing a few cases, the researchers found that the red ink in tattoos triggers the growth of tumors, because the skin recognizes it as a foreign substance and the immune system reacts. Besides this severe condition, tattoos also may result in skin inflammations, dermatitis, granulomas and other allergic reactions. The best possible way to treat or prevent such allergic reactions is to avoid the red ink or undergo tattoo removal procedures and not risk having any problems.

Use Peptides to Heal and Repair Injuries

Peptides are basically short chains of amino acid monomers linked by peptide bonds. When there are large number of amino acids in the chain (more than 10), then that chain is called polypeptide, and such large polypeptides are known as proteins. And it is well known that how much protein is important for our body; hence, peptide has the same importance in our body. One of the important qualities of peptide is its healing quality, i.e., peptides help in healing and repairing the injuries of our body. For more information about peptides you can visit www.peptideguide.com.group

 

Which peptides help in healing injuries?

There are various peptide derivatives which are beneficial to human health. Different peptides work for different purposes. So, some of the peptide derivatives that work for repairing and healing injuries are – Human Growth Hormone (HGH), Tb-500, BPC 157, Ipamorelin, etc. The peptides mainly heal muscle injuries, like breakage of tissues, sore shoulder, muscle sprain, etc.

 

How do peptides work?

Peptides work from deeper inside of the injuries so as to cure it properly. Mostly the peptide derivatives come in injectable form but some also come in oral forms. The injectable forms are more efficient and they function much better than the oral forms. You need to inject the peptide with anti-inflammatory and pain relieving qualities to get the best results. Functions of some of peptides –

  • HGH – It is mostly known for its use in muscle injuries, but it also helps in cases of tendon related injuries. It is also very popular for healing shoulder injuries. Basically, it speeds up recovery times.
  • Tb-500 – It is always used in conjunction with HGH, or any other peptide, or it can be used alone also. It is mostly used to heal tendon injuries in conjunction with Ipamorelin. Also, it is used for tennis-elbow, and other tendon related injuries.
  • BPC 157 – This has a huge impact in repairing torn tendons. Also, it is the one peptide which has no side effects and works very efficiently.
  • Ipamorelin – This one is used as Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP). It basically helps in muscle growth and healing without many side effects.

Some important tips to keep in mind

Although, the peptide derivatives have many beneficial effects on your body, but still they have some side effects which may be hazardous to your health. Thus, before taking any peptide derivatives you must consult your physician or doctor for precautionary measurements. Also, you must not rely on the peptides completely as they can cause any harmful effects on prolonged use. For example, HGH can cause cancer if used at over dosage; also some other peptides may lead to overweight, and many other health related problems.

Thus, use peptides according to your need with all precautions and doctor’s advice. Always maintain the dosage limits to stay at proper health. And, to know more about the peptides and their usage in healing and repairing injuries visit the link – www.peptideguide.com.
