To my understanding, an allergic response is a non-adaptive response of the immune system to some molecule. The molecule in question is therefore "thought by the immune system" to be infectious although it is not. An allergic response is triggered by immunoglobulin of type E (
$IG_E$) and causes an immune reaction.
I'd expect immune responses to not be instataneous, that is I would expect that it takes some time in order for the immune system to achieve some reaction peak. In consequences, I have been wondering whether someone that is under an allergic reaction is more resistant to early development of infectious disease because the immune system is already "switched on" prior to the infection. On the other hand, I would have thought that the body resistance to anything is lowered during an allergic reaction 1) because the allergy diminishes "general health" and 2) because allergic response may kill body cells.
Are we more/less resistant to infectious diseases during an allergic reaction?
