About Allergy

An allergy is the response of the body's immune system to normally harmless substances, such as pollens, foods, and house dust mite. Whilst in most people these substances (allergens) pose no problem, in allergic individuals their immune system identifies them as a’ threat’ and produces an inappropriate response.

Allergy is widespread and affects approximately one in three of the population in the world at some time in their lives. Each year the numbers are increasing with as many as half of all those affected being children.
