Understanding Allergies

Your Guide to Allergy Treatment

An allergy occurs when your immune system overreacts to a perceived threat. Ranging from mild to severe, allergies can fall into several categories including drug, contact (latex, chemicals, etc.), environmental/seasonal (pollen, animal dander, mold, etc.) or food (eggs, peanut butter, etc.).
