What are Allergies?

An allergy is a disorder in which the body becomes hypersensitive to a particular allergen, which provokes characteristic symptoms whenever the body is then subsequently exposed.

Different allergies afflict different tissues in the body and maybe localised, such as hayfever or asthma, or general such as sever dermatitis or extreme serious shock. in their effects.

Common allergies include pollen, specific foods, dust, perfume and animal fur.
