The immune system serves as the protector of the body, so when a foreign object enters, it reacts in certain ways. For example, allergies happen when pollen, bee venom, pet dander, and other allergens enter the body.
This is because the human’s immune system contains antibodies that identify a specific allergen as harmful, even if they are not. When a person comes into contact with these allergens, the immune system will inflame the skin, airways, digestive system, and sinuses.
However, the severity of the allergic reaction could vary on different people. It could be just a minor irritation or the worse, anaphylaxis that can be life-threatening.
