An allergy is an adverse reaction (hypersensitivity) resulting from exposure to a normally harmless substance (allergen). This substance may be a drug, a food, or some other environmental agent such as dust, dust-mites, pets, or pollens. The reaction may manifest itself in various ways including skin rashes, sneezing, swelling of the tissue or mucous membranes, and a number of very violent reactions that can result in anaphylactic shock or death. Adverse reactions to food can cause a range of symptoms throughout the body. Some of these reactions are mediated through the immune system by IgE, and some by IgG. Various systems in the body can be affected by allergies like: skin, digestive system, airways, skeletal, muscular and neurological systems. Eczema, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and general pains can be sorted out.
