Inflammation

Inflammation

When the body’s defense system responds to an external threat such as infection, or to damage, inflammation ensues. Inflammation is thus a natural response to an infection, but all kinds of harmful impacts on the body, allergies and some diseases can trigger an inflammation. Once the immune system has reacted effectively, the inflammation usually subsides and tissue healing is initiated. Typical symptoms for an inflammation are redness, swelling, pain, heat and loss of function.
