Antiallergic medicine

Antiallergic medicine is a medicine that prevents allergic reactions. It is used for prevention of allergic reactions and the effect appears by continuing internal use for several weeks. It differs from Antihistamine medicines in timing to use and mechanism, so you should be careful.


Do you remember the word of mast cell? This is a cell binding to IgE antibody. It discharges substances such as histamine and later causes dermatitis, asthma and so on. Antiallergic medicine has a function to prevent mast cell from discharging substances. If nothing comes out from mast cells, the allergic reactions can be suppressed.
