Immune System Disorders and Their Effect on Your Health

Your immune system acts like a shield that protects you from outside invaders such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins. When your immune system is strong, it attacks and kills harmful invader germs that can cause you infection, illness and disease.

But when your immune system is down and weak, you can get frequent infections including ear infection, lung and breathing problems, and also getting sinus blockages. You would also be catching the cold and flu frequently. Another sign of low immunity is feeling tired all the time. That’s because your body is trying to conserve energy in order to power up your immune system to fight off germs.

When your immune system is working properly, it can save you from infections, colds and flu. But when your immune system is overactive, you can get conditions like allergies, asthma or eczema. Immune system disorders can also turn to an autoimmune ailment such as rheumatoid arthritis or type 1 diabetes. Another indication of immune system disorder is skin rashes. Since your skin is your body’s first barrier against germs, how your skin looks and feels can reflect how well your immune system is functioning. Itchy, dry, red skin is a common symptom of inflammation due to immune system disorder. Sometimes when your immune system is overactive, it can fight your skin’s pigment-making cells, so you’ll start to see white patches of skin on your body. Another indication of immune system disorder is patchy hair loss. If you lose hair on your scalp, face, or other parts of your body, you could have a condition called alopecia areata. Strands or clumps of hair coming out can be a symptom of lupus. If you are feeling tingling or numbness in your hands and feet, that could also indicate an immune system disorder. In this case, it could be the immune system is attacking your nerves. People who have Guillain-Barre syndrome, for instance, may have numbness that starts in their legs then moves up to their arms and chest.

Allergic reactions start in your immune system. If you are allergic to a substance such as dust, mold, or pollen and you come into contact with it, your immune system may overreact to it. It may make antibodies that attack the substance. This can lead to:

  • Wheezing
  • Itching
  • Runny nose
  • Watery or itchy eyes

Common allergic reactions, such as hay fever, certain types of asthma, and hives are linked to immune system overactivity.
