    According to the British Allergy Foundation, one in three people in the UK suffer from an allergy at some time in their lives, with numbers increasing year-on-year. An allergy, as opposed to an intolerance, is a reaction produced by the immune system when the body comes into contact with the allergenic substance. The immune system produces an antibody,immunoglobulin E (IgE), to fight off the allergen in the same way that it would fight an infection. This  leads to a number of chemicals being produced, including histamine. When histamine is produced this can cause tightening of muscles and increased mucus production.
