Allergies

The Most Common Allergens

Allergies are caused due to various allergens present in the environment. These allergens are tiny particles which triggers of a reaction in us worsening our condition. Though we cant stop ourselves from reacting to it, we can definitely prevent our selves from getting near the source of these allergens.

Most Common Allergens Found in the Environment

Pollen from trees, grass and weeds.

Allergies that occur in the spring (late April and May) are often due to tree pollen. Allergies that occur in the summer (late May to mid-July) are often due to grass and weed pollen. Allergies that occur in the fall (late August to the first frost) are often due to ragweed. So make sure you stay away from them.

Mold.

Mold is common where water tends to collect, such as shower curtains, window moldings and damp basements. It can also be found in rotting logs, hay, mulches, commercial peat moss, compost piles and leaf litter. The content of mold gets worse during humid and rainy weather. It is therefore very essential that you take extra care during this phase.

Animal dander.

Proteins found in the skin, saliva, and urine of furry pets such as cats and dogs are allergens. You can be exposed to dander when handling an animal or from house dust that contains dander. We do understand the love you feel for your animal, but your health is very important too. So, stay away from that pet of yours and shower love from a distance.

Dust.

Many allergens, including dust mites, are in dust. Dust mites are tiny living creatures found in bedding, mattresses, carpeting and upholstered furniture. They live on dead skin cells and other things found in house dust. The bad news is that they are found everywhere. It is very essential and necessary that you keep your house dust free so as to avoid any problems.
