Allergy: What is it?

Allergic disorders result from an inappropriate, usually IgE-mediated, immune response upon exposure to either environmental or food allergens. Common manifestations of allergy include rhinoconjunctivitis, asthma, eczema, acute urticaria and anaphylaxis.

Disorders, such as chronic urticaria, hereditary angioedema and T-cell contact dermatitis (metal allergy), while clinically similar in some ways, are not IgE-mediated. Allergic disease manifests in different ways through life and the likely causative agents can also change with age (see Table 1).
