Allergy

The concept "allergy" means some sort of pathological or exaggerated reaction of the body (for example, sneezing, itching, running nose etc.) to foreign substances, or even situations that have no similar effect on average person. The reaction is said to be exaggerated since the body of the person is sensitive to this substance and perceives it as a potentially threatening one. Once the body comes across such a foreign substance or substances, it defends itself by calling part of the immune system into action. The substances that bring about these allergic responses are called allergens, for example dust, or various foods, like peanuts.
