An allergy is the immune system’s abnormal response to contact with an specific substance. The system overreacts when faced with foreign substances or organisms, allergens, and deals with them as if they were harmful, as it would with invading bacteria, for example.
The response result is an allergic reaction, also known as a histamine reaction, which is the substance produced in response to attack. Common allergens include certain foods, grass pollens, spores, fabrics, drugs, household chemicals, and stress. Some of the most common allergic responses are rashes, dermatitis, asthma, and hay fever/rhinitis. The most common symptoms are sneezing and runny nose, wheezing, excess mucus, rashes, edema, constriction of air tubes, anaphylactic shock and heart failure, these last 2 can be fatal.
