Itching for allergy info?

by Hennepin Healthcare

An allergy is the body’s overreaction to what should be ignored — the immune system’s response to things in the environment that are perceived as “invaders.”

Allergist Dr. John Sweet says it’s important to get tested if you suspect you have an allergy. “To conquer your enemy, you have to first know your enemy.” If you know what triggers your allergy symptoms, then you can avoid exposures and symptoms.
