What Causes Seasonal Allergies?

Posted on

About eight percent of the adult population in America suffers from seasonal allergies according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. Allergies vary by season and have different causes. Allergena offers homeopathic allergy relief formulas for kids and adults. Read about the causes of allergies throughout the seasons, and shop online with us today!

Airborne Allergens

Allergies are more triggered than caused, and probably the most prevalent cause of seasonal allergies is airborne allergens, which includes pollen, ragweed, grasses, pet dander, dust mites, and more. These allergens irritate the lungs and pathways, which is what causes seasonal allergies.

Foods

Foods can trigger allergies as your body mistakenly takes the proteins in food as a threat, so your immune system steps into high gear. Certain foods are more likely to trigger allergies, which include peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, fish, and shellfish. Avoid these foods to help lessen the symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Medications

Certain medications can cause allergic reactions and allergy symptoms. The most common medications to be aware of include penicillin or other types of antibiotics related to penicillin. Other drugs, such as chemotherapy drugs, muscle relaxers, and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, can worsen allergy symptoms, too.

Certain Insect Stings

The stings of insects, such as honeybees, hornets, and wasps, can cause an allergic reaction. The venom that these insects inject into your body when stung causes your body to release substances to fight the sting, which then causes an allergic reaction. Reactions range from mild to severe.
