What are allergies?
Allergies occur when your body’s immune system reacts to a trigger or allergen. Pollen, mould, certain foods, animal hair or fur are examples of things that may cause triggers that may irritate your skin, eyes, respiratory system or digestive system.
This month we will have a look at different types of allergy, including the causes, signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction. We will also look at how best to prevent and treat those, and throw a light on spring allergies and hayfever.
