What Are Allergies?
An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system mistakenly identifies an otherwise harmless substance (an allergen) as being dangerous. There are various types of allergies, including environmental allergies (e.g., pet dander and dust mites) and seasonal allergies (e.g., pollen and ragweed). Some people also have allergies to certain foods, such as peanuts and shellfish.
