Top 10 Worst Airborne Allergies

Airborne allergens can be a nightmare to deal with. They attack your body’s immune system triggering an allergic response. This might include stuffy sinus passageways, dry cough, itchy eyes, and even headaches. Those are just a few of the main symptoms that can happen. Everyone reacts to allergens a little bit differently.

Sometimes these allergies can be seasonal, while others you may be susceptible to year round, which is a constant problem that affects your daily life. You might even miss days of work or children who have trouble focusing in school, since they feel so miserable.

The ACAAI (American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology) says that allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States, which is probably why the drugstore shelves are stocked with over-the-counter remedies to try and help people alleviate their pesky symptoms. Those medications sometimes don’t even work very well. Here is our list of the top ten worst airborne allergens and and how to deal with them.

An Allergen That Wrecks Havoc For Sufferers

Obviously some areas of the country are more likely to be dealing with certain allergens. It’s estimated that 75 percent of people with allergies are allergic to airborne ragweed. This plant grows everywhere in abundance, so that’s why it’s an issue to deal with each year. Other than making sure your yard is ragweed free by cutting down those plants, you need to find relief elsewhere.

“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
