Allergic diseases are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to an environmental agent, which in most people causes no problem. Types of allergies can include food allergies, pollen and hay fever, as well as to other environmental factors found in common products such as clothing, cleaning supplies, furniture, etc. Allergic responses can include rhinitis, asthma, dermatitis, and anaphylaxis.
