Allergy or intolerance?

Difference between allergy and intolerance

Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to certain substances. The substances themselves are not actually harmful to the health. Intolerances such as lactose intolerance or coeliac disease, on the other hand, point to enzyme deficiencies or impairments of the intestines that trigger symptoms.
