Allergies are manifested when the immune system overreacts to a foreign substance such as pollen, animal dander, mold, mites and dust that normally does not cause problem to the majority of people. When an allergy occurs, the immune system creates antibodies that identify allergens as being harmful, despite the fact that they are not.
Treat when symptoms begin and as long as allergy triggers remain.
