When your body comes into contact with an allergen, your immune system immediately goes to work to fight off what it recognizes as an invader.
What are Skin Allergies?
Skin allergies can be the result of anything your body comes into contact with from airborne invaders, foods, chemicals used to wash your body or laundry, metal, or various medications. Your skin is the barrier that protects your body from outside elements. A skin allergy is a sign that your body is attempting to protect you from a substance that it perceives as harmful.
