LEARN WHAT YOU’RE UP AGAINST

The more you know about indoor and outdoor allergies, the more you can protect yourself throughout the year. Seasonal allergies symptoms can occur at different times of the year due to tiny substances in the air referred to as allergens. Seasonal allergies can also be referred to as seasonal allergic rhinitis, most commonly known as hay fever. Mold and pollen particles, such as ragweed, are other common allergens. If you’re sensitive to these allergens, they can cause an allergic reaction when inhaled.

Our enemies - the allergy triggers Common outdoor and indoor particles that trigger your allergies

Technically, an allergen is anything that causes an allergic reaction. Here are some of the most common ones and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

Dust mites

Microscopic dust mites can be a year-round cause of allergies and asthma. They live in furniture, bedding, and carpet and cannot be eliminated by vacuuming alone. Steam cleaning and dry cleaning can eliminate most dust mites, as well as washing items like bedding in very hot water.

Dust Mites

Mold

Mold is a multi-celled fungus, similar to mushrooms. It is capable of growing both indoors and out, and requires only a damp surface to thrive. Indoors, mold is often found in places like the kitchen, bathroom, and basement. Using a dehumidifier or space heater in damp areas can help reduce mold growth.

Mold

Pet dander

Most pet allergies are caused by a protein in the pet's dead skin, saliva, and urine. These proteins can stick to clothing, carpet, and even walls. Pet allergens can be reduced in the home with regular cleaning. It is also helpful to keep pets away from the bedroom.

Allergies, Cold, or Flu? What's the difference?

Your body reacts to allergens in several ways. Some symptoms may trick us, making it difficult to tell what's causing them. While allergies have some pretty distinctive symptoms that set them apart, it is hard to tell the difference between cold and flu viruses without a physician's help. However, the severity of the symptoms experienced can be a good indicator of what's going on.

Listed there are the most common allergy, cold, and flu symptoms to help you get a better idea of the situation.

If your symptoms persist, though, and you're still not sure what's making you feel bad, be sure to consult a physician.

Allergies, Cold of Flu

Let's talk about symptoms and histamines What's going on inside your body?

Your body's immune system identifies allergens as intruders, and tackles them by releasing several chemicals, one of which is histamine. The most important early-phase defense against allergens, histamine is what causes most allergy symptoms.

Sneezing, congestion, itchy or watery eyes, and a runny nose can be signs that more histamine has been released than your body can handle. Leukotriene, which plays a role in your body's late-phase defense, can cause nasal congestion and other allergy symptoms, too.

Sneezing

Congestion is the result of allergens or other foreign materials entering the nose. When irritated, nasal tissues and blood vessels swell with excess fluid, leaving you with a "stuffy" feeling.
