When an allergen, such as dust, pollen, or mold, is inhaled, ingested, or enters through the skin, our immune system recognizes it as a foreign substance and responds by overreacting. In a defense-like manner, it produces antibodies to attack these substances, which may cause watery eyes, a runny nose, trouble breathing, itchy throat, or sneezing. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, it may mean you’re suffering from allergies.
There are a wide variety of things that can cause allergies, from dust mites and pet hair to tree, grass, or weed pollen. Everyone is affected differently and the severity of one’s allergies can range from mild to life-threatening. It’s important to identify what is causing your allergies and what precautions or medications you can take to avoid its symptoms.
