Allergy problems arise when your immune system overreacts to an allergen—something that is usually harmless, such as plant pollen, dust mites, mold, insect stings, and certain foods. If you have an allergy, your immune system acts as if the allergens were dangerous, releasing a chemical called histamine that causes allergy symptoms. If the allergen is something you breathe in from the air, your reaction will most likely affect your eyes, nose, and lungs. If it's something you eat, it may affect your mouth, stomach, and intestines. Food allergies also can cause skin rashes or even asthma symptoms.
