Do I have Allergies?
The term allergy refers to the exaggerated immune response to certain foreign substances that enter the body. Typically, foreign substances can enter the body at any time, and are normally harmless. However, in the case of someone who has an allergy, certain foreign substances can trigger an allergic response. These substances are known as allergens.
Allergy triggers vary depending on the individual. Not all allergens cause the same reaction for one person as they would another.
