All About Allergies
An allergy is when your immune system reacts to something that’s normally harmless to most people. If you come into contact with a substance that your immune system views as a threat, called an allergen, it responds by releasing a chemical called histamine and other substances. The release of these substances is what causes your allergic reaction. Atopy, or having an atopic predisposition, refers to the genetic predisposition to develop allergic diseases.
Types of allergies & their triggers
Anything from pollen to mold to animals to food can trigger an allergic reaction in someone who is allergic. And while some people may outgrow their existing allergies, new ones could spring up at any time.
Certain allergens are frequently responsible for allergic reactions and some include:
Seafood & Shellfish
Fruit & Vegetables
