Were you looking for information about Allergies? Alllergies is a common misspelling of allergies.
Allergies occur when the body's immune system reacts to a normally harmless substance. These allergens may include food, pollens, dust mite, or latex. Symptoms that may occur during a reaction to an allergen include coughing, sneezing, and watering eyes. Allergies, which may occur year-round or only during specific times of the year, affect about 35 million Americans. The most common treatments for allergies include medications or shots.
