Allergy is a disorder of the immune system in which the defenses respond inappropriately and they identify external substances as harmful that, due to their nature, are inoffensive. The most frequent allergy is respiratory - rhinoconjunctivitis and allergic asthma- which affects around 25% of the general population.
