Allergy Season Is Here

It's allergy season! Here are some allergy facts:

  • Allergic rhinitis often called hay fever, is a common condition that causes symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose, watery eyes, itching of the nose, eyes or the roof of the mouth
  • These nasal allergies are estimated to affect approximately 50 million people in the U.S., and its prevalence is increasing affecting as many as 30% of adults.
  • 16.9 million adults have been diagnosed with hay fever in the last year.
  • More than 13.4 million visits to physician offices, hospital outpatient departments, and emergency departments were due to allergic rhinitis.
  • Allergic rhinitis can be seasonal or constant. Symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis occur in spring, summer and/or early fall. They are usually caused by allergic sensitivity to pollens from trees, grasses or weeds, or to airborne mold spores. People with perennial allergic rhinitis experience symptoms year-round. It is generally caused by sensitivity to house dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches and/or mold spores. Underlying or hidden food allergies rarely cause continual nasal symptoms.
  • Once diagnosed, allergic rhinitis treatment options are avoidance, eliminating or decreasing your exposure to the irritants or allergens that trigger your symptoms, medication and allergy shots.
  • Allergy shots help reduce hay fever symptoms in about 85% of people with allergic rhinitis.
  • Allergic diseases, which include asthma, are the fifth most common chronic diseases in all ages.
