Allergy is a situation developed due to hypersensitivity of the immune system to the substances in the environment or food which either enter or come in contact with the body that causes problems. These substances that cause allergies are called an allergen. Allergies are commonly seen in many people.

What causes Allergies ?

Substances that cause allergies are called allergens or antigens. When these allergens or antibodies enter our body through skin, eyes, nose or stomach, our immune system produces antibodies which help to destroy these antigens or allergens or foreign substances.

Though these allergens are not harmful, our immune system becomes hypersensitive to these antigens and destroys them.

Some common triggers which can cause allergies are :
