Allergies are triggered when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen, bee venom, and pet dander – or a food that is harmless to most people.

Antibodies are substances produced by your immune system. When you suffer from allergies, your immune system produces antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful even though it is not.
