An allergy is an immune system disorder that causes an exaggerated response within the body when exposed to a foreign substance that is normally harmless to most people. Many illnesses are caused by allergies, particularly in young children. If you are allergic to a specific allergen, you may experience a mild cough or sneeze attack, but for others, the symptoms can be much more severe. Almost any substance can be an allergen for someone.
