Allergy occurs when your immune system reacts to substances in the environment that are usually harmless to most individuals.
Those substances are called allergens and the reactions can vary from mild to life threatening (anaphylaxis).
When an exposure to an allergen has occurred, the antibody response system is triggered. Antibodies attach to specialized cells called mast cells. Those mast cells in turn release several substances including histamine. Histamine will cause swelling and inflammation and as such can cause great discomfort manifested through various symptoms.
Those symptoms may include itchy and runny nose eyes and throat (hay fever/allergic rhinitis), asthma exacerbation and breathing difficulties, colic and stomach upset, eczema, and hives.
