An allergy is an abnormal reaction by a person's immune system against a normally harmless substance. A person without allergies would have no reaction to this substance, but when a person who is allergic encounters the trigger, the body reacts by releasing chemicals which cause allergy symptoms. However, just because there is a cause and effect between exposure to a substance and the development of symptoms does not always mean that a person is allergic to that substance.
Allergies can be:
- Nasal Allergies
- Hay Fever
- Skin Allergies
- Food Allergies
- Drug and Medicine Allergies
- Insect Allergies
If you think you may have had an allergic reaction.
