The immune system – including cellular elements like white blood cells and non- cellular elements like antibodies, complement proteins and other substances – defends the body against foreign substances (called antigens).

In susceptible people, the immune system sometimes overreact when exposed to certain chemicals in the environment, certain food or drugs which are usually harmless in most people.

This overreaction of the immune system results in an allergic reaction with bodily symptoms. Some people are allergic to only one substance, others are allergic to many.
