What do you know about allergies? Yes, when you have them, it’s awful, and maybe that’s all you need to know. But to get the nitty-gritty-sniffly details, read on.
First, you can thank your immune system. It reacts (badly!) to things like pollen, insect stings, animal dander and even just food. For whatever reason, your body has decided these things are a threat, and it makes antibodies to fight them off, which, in turn, release histamine.
But can we outgrow an allergy? Sometimes, but working with an allergist is the best way to find out.
