An allergy is your immune system reacting to something in your environment, or something you eat (food allergy), that usually does not bother other people. Typically, if you have allergies, you will be sensitive to more than one thing.
Current scientific belief for explaining the cause of your allergic overreaction involves both your genes and the environment. Your immune system is designed to fight germs, it’s your body’s defense system. However, in your allergic reaction scenario, it responds to a false alarm with too much vigor.
