Your immune system’s response to a foreign substance that’s not typically harmful to your body is called allergy and the foreign substance is known as an allergen. The immune system helps fight harmful pathogens and keep your body healthy. It performs this job by attacking anything which it thinks might harm your body.

The immune system reacts to an allergen once you come in contact with it and the response can inflame your sinuses, skin, nasal passages, airways, nose and digestive system.

Depending on the type of allergen, the immune response may be sneezing, inflammation or a host of other symptoms.

Allergies symptoms and severity may differ from person to person. Some people have only minor symptoms – such as irritation and inflammation – while others may have life-threatening emergency conditions – such as anaphylaxis. Though most allergies cannot be cured, some types of allergies can be managed properly says allergy specialist in Hyderabad.
