What are allergies and how do we develop them?
Allergies happen when your immune system has an adverse reaction to a normal substance such as shellfish, dust, honey or pollen.
Your immune system produces substances known as antibodies. A few antibodies shield you from undesirable intruders that could make you debilitated or cause disease.
When you have hypersensitivities, your immune system makes an abundance of antibodies to specific allergen it sees as hurtful, despite the fact that it isn’t. When you come into contact with the allergen, your immune system’s response can aggravate your skin, sinuses, and even your lungs.
The seriousness of hypersensitivities fluctuates from individual to individual and can run from minor irritations to full blown allergic reactions. While most sensitivities can’t be cured, various medications can alleviate your hypersensitivity.
