When people are allergic to something, their immune system thinks that this substance is harmful to the body and attacks it. Reactions can be as mild as a runny nose or itchy eyes; or much stronger, like having trouble breathing.

Substances that cause allergic reactions, such as certain foods, dust, plant pollen, or medicines, are known as allergens.
