Were you looking for information about Allergies? Alergie is a common misspelling of allergies.
 
Allergies can occur year-round (perennial) or only during specific times of the year (seasonal). They occur when the body's immune system reacts to normally harmless substances, such as pollens, medicines, or certain foods. When an allergic reaction occurs, a person may experience stuffy or runny nose, coughing, watering eyes, and sneezing. Medications or allergy shots, as well as strategies to minimize a person's contact with allergens, can help relieve these symptoms.
