An allergy is a hypersensitive reactive response of the immune system, which identifies certain substances, normally tolerated by the majority of population, as harmful.

This immune system response produces a series of inflammatory alterations to the skin and mucous membranes, giving rise to various symptoms and signs of allergic disorders, which are treated by a specialist in Allergology and Clinical Immunology.
