What are allergies?

Allergies are when the immune system reacts negatively to something foreign. Most commonly you can get an allergic reaction to different types of food, animals, and dust. Although most people believe you are born with allergies this is actually not true. You can develop allergies as you age and the reactions to your allergy can either get better or worse as you age, as well. It is always good to check with your doctor if you do have any allergies because in some cases allergies can be deadly. 

Signs you have allergies

There are many reactions you can get from an allergy. One of the most common reactions people get is sneezing and an itchy, runny, or blocked nose.
