An allergy is a misguided reaction of the immune system to foreign substances that should normally be tolerated. Alongside any genetic predisposition, numerous non-genetic factors also play a role, such as exposure to the allergen, nutritional condition, existing chronic diseases and acute viral infections. The most frequently occurring allergy is a type I hypersensitivity reaction, in which specific IgEantibodies are formed. The symptoms (rash, edema or itching) generally occur shortly after contact with the allergen.
