    About Allergies

    More than 36 million Americans suffer from indoor and outdoor allergic rhinitis, also known as upper respiratory allergies.(2C) Allergies are caused when a person's immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances.(3B) These substances are often referred to as triggers.(3C) People can encounter indoor and outdoor allergy triggers anytime throughout the year that can lead to allergy symptoms. (3C) Indoor allergies can occur year-round and are triggered by substances such as mold, dust mites, and pet dander.(3D) These allergens are often inhaled through the nose and mouth, putting the allergens in contact with the immune cells in the lining of the nose, mouth, throat, and airways of the lungs causing an allergic response. (3D) Similarly, outdoor allergies can occur when outdoor allergens such as pollen from grasses, weeds and trees are inhaled through the nose and mouth into the lungs causing an allergic response.(3E) Those who suffer from outdoor allergies are often affected by allergies in the spring and fall.(3F) Symptoms for both indoor and outdoor allergies can include itchy, watery eyes, itchy nose or throat,(2F) sneezing(2G) and runny nose.(2F)
