Are You Allergic?

Seasonal Allergy Icons

Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies can be caused by small particles (dust, pollen, mold, etc.) that are present in the air, entering the nose as you breathe. A person who has allergies will experience inflammation in the lining of the nose because the body thinks that something dangerous has arrived.

Food Allergies

Don’t be fooled by common non-allergic adverse food reactions such as gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, or food poisoning. These are not true “allergies”.

Research has shown that 4% to 6% of American children and 3% to 5% of all adults have true food allergies.

When it comes to food allergies, 90% of cases in the United States are caused by one of the following: peanuts, soybean, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, egg, and milk.

Allergy symptoms may affect the nasal passages, eyes, skin, lungs, or digestive system. Itchy eyes, sneezing, stuffy nose, wheezing, and hives are common reactions to allergens. Sometimes, more dangerous whole-body reactions can occur which can cause severe hives, shortness of breath and throat-swelling.
