A Real Life Guide to Living with Allergies

Allergies are an overreaction of the body's immune system, which starts fighting substances that are usually harmless (such as dust mites, pollen, or a medicine).

Most allergic reactions are mild and can be treated at home but severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) can be life-threatening.
