In brief: Triggers, vs. causes

"Allergy" occurs when your immune system misinterprets harmless things in your external environment as potential threats and starts reacting in a recognizable way.
Food, medication, stings, and airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites, animal proteins, mold spores all can trigger severe allergies in some, but why some people develop allergy and some don't is still a mystery.

In brief: Cause

The actual cause are your ancestors who gave you a common immune alteration that cuases you to overreact to environmental stimuli.
Airborn allergens of all types, chemicals, foods and contactants are all common triggers. See an allergist to find out what pattern applies to you. An allergy book is 2000 pages long and not applicable here (several volumes).
