Allergy is an excessive reaction or hypersensitivity of the immune system to certain specific substances (allergens) such as pollen, mold, house dust mites, animal fur/dander and insect bites/stings.
When an allergic person is exposed to a specific allergen, the immune system produces antibodies known as IgE (immunoglobulin E) antibodies; IgE is a protein that acts as a signal to the immune system. Each IgE antibody is always specific to a particular allergen.
