What is an Allergy and why it is such a misused word ?

Eons ago when man was developing a vast amount of parasites existed in our blood. This did us no good as a species but ourimmune system created a white mast cell to compensate. The reason for this cell was when it came across a parasite in the blood it degranulated or exploded releasing very irritant chemicals to kill the parasite. One of them is histamine hence we take antihistamine and because they are irritant and cause inflammation so we take steroids because they are anti-inflammatory .
