An allergy reaction is a response from the innate immune response system. It can manifest in several forms. A reaction that is most common on the skin is redness. This is due to the flow of blood near the skins surface at the site of the reaction, such as a bee sting. A second symptom occurring from… blood flow is heat. The reaction site will become warm to the touch. A third symptom is swelling at the reaction site. This occurs due to the increase of blood flow, particularly the blood plasma, the straw-colored part of blood that contains the immune components that destroy foreign material.

Not sure what you mean by injuries induced by strep throat. But I do know its symptoms. Streptococcus pharyngitis is a grade A streptococcus bacterial infection of the throat, hence why it is more commonly called strep throat. The following is a list of symptoms taken from the PubMed Health websit…e: . Fever that begins suddenly and is often highest on the second day . Red throat, sometimes with white patches . Sore throat . Headache . Stomach ache . Nausea . Chills . General discomfort, uneasiness or ill feeling . Loss of appetite and abnormal taste . Tender, swollen lymph nodes in the neck . Difficulty swallowing Trust me on this, it's not fun to have Strep. If you do contract the illness, go with the pennicilin injection (if you have no allergies to pennicilin). The anti-bacterial tablets have a 45% success rate (meaning they do NOT work all that well). The injection will clear up the strep throat bacteria within 2-4 days. I have had it twice, and had to get the injection both times (of course, the second time was a relapse of the first original case I fell ill with.) For more, visit the Related Link provided below.
