Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is inflammation and what are the symptoms of it?

Inflammation is an immune system response to something that is viewed (by your body) as foreign or dangerous to your body. In the process of dealing with this threat your body creates inflammation. It’s part of your defense mechanism.

If you have an inflammation after an injury this has a different function. Your body gives a pain signal to your brain to let that part of the body heal and restore.
