An allergy is an adverse immune system reaction to a substance that most people find harmless. Allergies can manifest in a variety of ways. Common examples of an allergic response include headaches, fatigue, sneezing, watery eyes, stuffy nose or sinuses, and possibly a skin rash that itches following exposure to dust, pollens, dust mites, animal dander, chemicals, foods, and a variety of other materials. The allergic reactions themselves can range from mild to severe depending on the person. Many of the conditions are so common that they are almost considered normal by the people who suffer from them. Allergies can cause or contribute to asthma, bronchitis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ear infections, eczema, hives, migraines or cluster headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, gastrointestinal disorders, glaucoma, kidney problems, weight gain, seizures, heart palpitations, depression, and even cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, among other conditions.
