Allergies are diseases of the immune system that cause an overreaction to substances called ‘allergens’. Allergies are grouped by the kind of trigger, time of year, or where symptoms appear on the body: indoor and outdoor allergies (also called ‘hay fever’, ‘seasonal’, ‘perennial’ or ‘nasal’ allergies), non-allergic food and drug allergies, latex allergies, insect allergies, skin allergies and eye allergies. People who have allergies can live healthy and active lives.
