4 of the Biggest Reasons Why People Suffer from Seasonal Allergies

Do you find yourself randomly wrestling with flu-like symptoms? Do you keep getting sick with a runny nose even though lab tests don’t show any infection? Does illness seem to strike like clockwork every time the seasons change? You could be suffering from allergic rhinitis. More commonly known as seasonal allergies, allergic rhinitis is a health problem that afflicts many unsuspecting and unaware people.


Understanding the Cause is Part of the Cure:

Science/Health Writer Joseph Stromberg explains that “Seasonal allergies are the immune system's response to the millions of pollen grains — plant sperm cells — floating through the air. By incorrectly interpreting pollen as a health threat, your body triggers an inflammatory response, leading to annoying symptoms like itchy eyes, or a runny nose. This is known as allergic rhinitis or ‘hay fever.’” Here are a few typical catalysts of allergic rhinitis:


1. Pollen:

Plantlife naturally releases small particles of pollen into the air. Especially during springtime when flowers are in bloom. Whenever this pollen is inhaled through orifices, allergic reactions can be triggered.


2. Dust Mites:

Dust mites are microscopic organisms that have similar anatomies to insects. They’re prevalent in warm/humid areas and thrive on dead skin cells. Dust mites themselves don’t bite or sting people, but they do release allergenic waste.


3. Mold Spores:

Mold is a type of fungus that forms and grows in warm, humid, and moist environments. When mold is inhaled, our immune systems immediately recognize it as a pathogen. The body will then stage an immune response which sometimes triggers allergic symptoms.


4. Pet Dander:

Pet dander refers to particles of matter which are naturally shed from living animals. Particles such as flakes of dry/dead skin, hair/fur, feathers, and so on. Pet dander contains proteins that can sometimes irritate the senses when inhaled. This is why certain pets trigger allergies in people.



The bad news about allergies is that they’re often difficult to diagnose. Not to mention the fact that they’re a pain to live with. But the good news is that understanding their origins goes a long way towards overcoming them.
