Allergy Season is here!

Prevention People with existing allergies should avoid irritants or allergens. These triggers include:

  • Pollen. This is the primary cause of allergic rhinitis.
  • Dust mites, specifically mite feces, which are coated with enzymes that contain a powerful allergen. These are the primary allergens inside the home.
  • Animal dander (flakes of skin) and hair from cats, house mice, and dogs. House mice are proving to be significant sources of allergens, particularly in urban children.
  • Molds.
  • Fungi.
  • Cockroaches are major asthma triggers and may reduce lung function even in people without a history of asthma.
  • Some research suggests that alcohol intake may influence allergy severity. One study found that as little as one drink a day is enough to worsen dust mite allergies.
  • Some studies suggest that early exposure to some of these allergens, including dust mites and pets, may actually  prevent allergies from developing in children.
