An allergy is an overreaction by your body to anything which would normally be harmless. An allergy is when your body decides to fight back against these by releasing IgE which is part of your immune system. This is what causes symptoms we commonly associate with allergies such as itching, rashes, redness, swelling, runny noses, watery eyes, sneezing, etc.

For some people the reactions can even lead to anaphylaxis which is life-threatening and needs urgent treatment.
An allergy is when your body fights back by releasing IgE causing an immune response, which causes the symptoms such as sneezing, runny eyes and nose, rashes and swelling. This is different to sensitivity or food intolerances. 

Sensitisation is the first step to becoming allergic. When your body first sees a substance it can become sensitised to it. You can be sensitive to many things without realising and this won’t affect you at all. Sensitisation doesn’t mean you are allergic to something as your body doesn’t overreact.  But if your body decides to fight the sensitivity, then this turns into an allergy.

Food intolerance is your bodies inability to digest food and is different to an IgE mediated allergy. Intolerance usually leads to symptoms such as upset stomach, diarrhoea, vommiting, wind and flatulance.  However, if you have a food allergy, this will cause an IgE response with symptoms such as rashes, itching, hives, runny eyes and nose, and sometimes anaphylactic reactions such as swelling of the mouth, tongue, throat and breathing difficulty.
