Allergies are exaggerated immune responses to substances that are generally not considered harmful. There are many different types, such as food and skin allergies. Allergic rhinitis is a type of allergy that occurs when your immune system overreacts to airborne particles such as dust, dander, or pollen, causing symptoms such as a runny or itchy nose and sneezing.
Allergy to plant pollen is commonly called hay fever and affects approximately 40 million people each year in the United States.
