Skin Allergy

It is an abnormal response of the immune system. The substances (pollen, mold, etc) are called allergen. The antigen responsible for an allergy reaction is called an allergen. Our immune system is there to defend us from any aggression or invasion by foreign substances. This loss of control on the part of the immune system triggers off harmful over- reactions known as hypersensitivity.
