Histamine

Say: his-tuh-meen

Histamine is a substance in the body that's released during an allergic reaction. It can cause allergy symptoms that affect the eyes, nose, throat, skin, digestive system, and lungs. When histamine affects the lungs, a person who has asthma may have breathing problems.
