Since the area surrounding Autoimmune diseases are so uncertain and not very well understood, it is hard to say for certain what triggers autoimmune diseases as a whole or eve…n seperately. There have been some theories that the Epstein-Barr virus (mononucleosis) play a role in setting it off but there are also other theories ranging from job related repeated vibrations setting off Scleroderma to the coxsackie virus being a risk factor for having Type 1 diabetes (insulin dependent). Though there are many theories, they are still under consideration and being tested.

An autoimmune disease is a reaction to a substance that is innate to the human body - such as a specific organ or cell. Whereas an allergy is a reaction to a foodstuff that is… ingested into the body, not a substance that is 'created' by the body. Autoimmune diseases are reactions to substances 'created' by the body. Allergies are caused by things that have been "added" (ingested, inhaled, applied topically etc...) to the body. Hence allergies are not auto-immune reactions (it is an "immune reaction" since it involves the immune system, but not "auto", since auto implies a reaction to "itself", essentially)
