About Allergies

More than 36 million Americans suffer from indoor and outdoor allergic rhinitis, also known as upper respiratory allergies. Up to 40 percent of children are affected by allergic rhinitis. In fact, on any given day, an estimated 10,000 American children miss school because of allergic rhinitis, for an annual total of two million lost school days. Allergies are caused when a person's immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances. These substances are often referred to as triggers. People can encounter indoor and outdoor allergy triggers anytime throughout the year that can lead to allergy symptoms. For children with allergies, the change of the seasons, sports, and even the school building itself can trigger symptoms like sneezing, runny nose and itchy-watery eyes.
