If you sneeze a lot or have a consistent runny or stuffy nose, there's a good chance you have upper respiratory allergies. Allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States alone.
People with allergies often experience sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose (nasal congestion) or itchy, watery eyes.
If your symptoms occur only at certain times of the year, chances are it’s seasonal allergic rhinitis, or outdoor allergies. Common triggers (substances that cause an allergic response) include tree, grass and weed pollens, or mold.
If your symptoms are year-round, it’s probably perennial allergic rhinitis, or indoor allergies. Common triggers include animal dander (tiny skin flakes or saliva from animals), indoor mold and dust mites.
- Keep windows closed and use air conditioning.
- Stay indoors during peak pollen hours: usually 5 am to 10 am.
- Change your clothes after you’ve been outside.
- Don’t hang laundry outside to dry.
- Avoid mowing the lawn or raking leaves.
