<p>Triggers, or allergens, can cause your immune system to overreact and release chemicals, such as histamines, into your system, leading to symptoms like a runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes or itchy skin. Allergies can strike at any time if a trigger is present, so be prepared by knowing how to treat your allergies.</p> <p>However, in severe cases, histamines can cause anaphylaxis, a reaction that may cause dizziness, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, a swollen throat or tongue or severe anxiety. If any of these symptoms occur, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.</p>
