How does it work?
Allergic reactions occur when the body comes into contact with a harmless substance (an allergen) that it believes is invading it. Allergens contain protein and can be dust, pollen, animal fur, grass, insects, milk, eggs and peanuts. The immune system releases an antibody to defend the body which in turn releases other chemicals that combine to cause symptoms of irritation and inflammation.
