Albumin is a blood plasma protein that is produced by the liver and makes up for about 60% of all plasma protein in the body. Albumin regulates distribution of body fluids between intravascular compartments and body tissues. It is also used by the body to transport thyroid hormones, fatty acids and drugs.

Epinephrine is a hormone that is involved in the body’s metabolism – it is more widely known under a different name: adrenaline. It is usually secreted in heightened amounts in stressful situations. The ensuing reaction of the body is known as the "fight or flight" response. Its synthetic version is widely used as a stimulant in cardiac arrest, a vasoconstrictor in shock and as an antispasmodic in bronchial asthma.

Histamine is a hormone/chemical transmitter that is involved in the body’s immune processes. It regulates stomach acid production, and mediates hypersensitivity of the body during allergic reactions. A histamine release during allergic reactions causes inflammation which results in symptoms typically associated with allergies.

Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
