After reading the following links, I thought I'd include them here for you all to read.  They will help provide a bit more info for those of you who'd like a little more insight on what's really happening inside of your body and just what is causing these allergies!  Hugs, Teri tongue
 
"The Body's First Line of Defense"
 
"Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from some form of allergic disease, and the incidence is increasing. When most of us think of allergies, we think of sneezing, a runny nose or watery eyes. While those are symptoms of some types of allergic disease, an allergic reaction is actually a product of several events occurring within your immune system."

Here's more info on your immune system...
 
"The immune response is how your body recognizes and defends itself against bacteria, viruses, and substances that appear foreign and harmful to the body."
