Our body is constantly confronted with external aggressions: microbes, viruses, bacteria. To fight them, he has a powerful weapon: the immune system.

Allergy is a failure of this system: instead of defending ourselves against real aggression, it overdo it and reacts against normally harmless foreign substances (allergens) such as pollen, dust, food and other perfumes. This reaction results in particular in the production of antibodies specific to allergy - IgE (Immunoglobulin E).
Allergy is a global disease which causes various symptoms such as: asthma, hay fever (rhinitis), conjunctivitis, eczema, urticaria, allergic shock.

The allergy manifests itself when the body "meets" the allergen , by ingestion, by inhalation, by skin contact. This triggers a rejection reaction by the immune system which considers the substance eaten, drunk, touched or inhaled as a serious enemy.
The body will then put into action its defense system, which will manifest itself in different ways depending on the person: exaggerated reaction of the lungs (asthma, allergic bronchitis), or of the nose (allergic rhinitis), or of the eyes (conjunctivitis), or skin (eczema, hives), or the inside of the mouth and throat (angioedema), or the heart and blood vessels and other headaches .
The allergic person is in perfect health as long as he is not in contact with one of the allergens that his immune system manages poorly.

Allergy can start at any age. A newborn baby or a very young child can be allergic. Symptoms can appear from birth. They can also appear in adulthood.
However, it is more common in children.
Some people are genetically predisposed to develop an allergy from very early childhood; they are said to be atopic .
If both parents are allergic: 80% risk for the child to be allergic. If only 1 parent: 50% risk of being allergic. However, even in the absence of allergic parents, a child can develop allergies.
