Skin allergies commonly present as bumps, redness, dryness and itchiness. Skin allergies can also overlap with food allergies as some people have contact allergies to certain foods. Common skin allergies include atopic dermatitis, which is a common form of eczema; hives, which can be caused by an allergen or an infection; contact dermatitis, which is a rash that can be caused by soaps, detergents, shampoos, nickel, adhesives and latex; and latex allergies, which can present as dermatitis (hives), itching, stuffy or runny nose and asthma.
Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, affects between 40 and 60 million Americans. It can be seasonal, only occurring during the spring and summer due to airborne pollen, or perennial, caused by dust mites, pet dander or mold. Hay fever symptoms may include runny nose, itchy eyes and skin, sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, fatigue or other allergies.
