It blocks a natural substance produced during an allergic process in the body called histamine.
It is an analgesic and fever reducer. Basically, it raises the threshold level of pain and acts on that region of the brain which regulates the body temperature. This causes an increase in the blood flow throughout the skin, along with heat loss and sweating. Paracetamol is useful in the management of low to medium intensity pains and aches like a toothache, headache, menstrual pains, joint pains, flu, and cold.
