What is "irritation"?

Irritation refers to a condition where a part of the body becomes swollen or sensitive, leading to discomfort or pain. This irritation can occur in various body parts, including the skin, eyes, throat, or internal organs. It is often caused by external factors such as allergens, chemicals, infections, or physical injury. Symptoms of irritation depend on the affected area but can include redness, itching, burning, or soreness. Treatment typically involves avoiding the irritant if possible and using soothing measures like applying cold compresses, taking antihistamines, or using creams to ease symptoms. If the irritation lasts or worsens, medical attention may be necessary to identify and address the underlying cause.
