What is Inflammation
If you’ve ever had a boil, an insect bite, or even a deep paper cut, you know the painful, hot, red swelling that results. This response, called inflammation, occurs as white blood cells try to fight off an invading pathogen or deal with a foreign body such as a splinter. While inflammation plays a vital role in defending you from germs, over time, allergy-related inflammation that is left unchecked can be harmful.
