Before learning allergy triggers, I believe it's important to understand what an "allergy" is. An "allergy" is your body's immune system over-reacting, perceiving harmless substances such as pollen and cat dander as malicious invaders, which triggers the body's allergic reaction. Understand? Now, on to some things that can trigger allergies...

1. Drugs

Believe it not, drugs can actually be allergy triggers. Many people develop allergies to drugs such as penicillin and aspirin. The symptoms can range from mild to serious and may include itchy eyes, hives, congestion and swelling in the mouth and throat. The best thing to do of course is to avoid the drug altogether. Also, it's always a safe bet to talk to your doctor and figure out if you have any drug related allergies to avoid unwanted scenarios in the future.
