Ad Allergies

 

Seasonal allergies, like other allergies, develop when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment that typically causes no problem in most people. If you sneeze and cough, or your nose and eyes itch and are runny during certain times of the year, you may have seasonal allergies. During the spring and summer months, grass, pollen and mold are the most common triggers of seasonal allergies.

Just because it may be winter, doesn’t mean that you are in the clear. It is still possible to suffer from allergies during the cold, winter months. The reason you might have a hard time in the winter is that most likely you are are stuck indoors because it is too cold to go outside. With no fresh air in the house, it makes it much easier for dust mites, pet dander and molds to accumulate throughout your home, causing allergies to be triggered.
