What causes allergy symptoms?
Allergy symptoms can be caused by a number of different indoor or outdoor allergens including pollen, ragweed, dust mites, and pet dander. There are things you can do to help alleviate exposure to allergens around your home. Wash your bedding weekly in hot water and dry it in a hot dryer. Vaccum frequently or replace your carpets with hardwood flooring, tile or linoleum. Keep humidity low by using a dehumidifier. Before getting a pet, ask your allergist to determine if you are allergic to animals.
