What causes an allergy?
An allergy is caused when coming into contact with a substance that the body thinks is a potential threat. Unlike a virus, an allergy isn’t a threat to the body, but the body protects itself by forming a defence. This defence includes releasing a number of chemicals, which includes a chemical called histamine. Histamine is a natural response to potentially harmful substances and too much will produce the symptoms associated with an allergy.
