Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from allergies – that’s nearly 1 in 7 people. Allergies are an exaggerated immune system response to an otherwise harmless substance. The result is sneezing; itchy, painful nose, throat, and mouth; itchy, watery eyes; and a runny or stuffy nose. Common allergy triggers include pollen, mold, pet dander, dust mites, smoke, food, chemicals, and medications. If you are one of the unlucky individuals suffering from allergies, rest assured that you are not alone – and treatments are available to help relieve your symptoms, whether they’re year-round or only occasional.
