Tell us a bit about yourself
It’s the rare person who has no allergies. Cat, dog, smoke, pollen, mold—most of us are at least a little allergic to something. According to the Mayo Clinic, “allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance or a food.” In other words, when you “come into contact with the allergen, your immune system’s reaction can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system.” Whatever the severity of the reaction—from sniffles to anaphylaxis—treatments, if not a cure, are available.
