Allergy and Immunology is a medical discipline that treats and diagnoses allergies, asthma, and immunologic illnesses such as primary immunodeficiency.
Allergies develop when your immune system overreacts to a foreign object or food that normally causes no reaction in most people, such as pollen, bee venom or animal dander and causes symptoms ranging from slightly irritating to potentially fatal. Every cell in your body has a self-defense mechanism. as a result your immune system produces antibodies when you have allergies with a particular object or substance and that label a specific allergen as harmful even if it isn't. This immune system's reaction may cause inflammation on your skin, sinuses, airways or your digestive system as in contact with any allergens.
The percentage of children suffering from allergic disorders has risen dramatically in recent years, affecting a large number of children and their families, and having a substantial influence on their standard of living.
Immune system problems can range from allergic diseases such as seasonal hay fever and food allergies to complex immune disorders that cause immune deficiency and autoimmunity during which the body’s immune system attacks the body's own healthy cells.
