Let’s talk about the triggers.
For people with allergies, it can feel like triggers are all around you. Well, that’s because they are. But the more you know about the most common allergy symptom triggers, the better prepared you’ll be to fight them, better.
There are many different pollens but the allergy-sufferers’ usual suspects are tree, grass and weeds: the body interprets them as a danger, and reacts by creating allergic symptoms.
In early Spring, tree pollen starts to get released into the air (and continues throughout the Spring.
In late Spring and throughout Summer, grass pollen is the most common kind of allergen.
In late Summer and throughout the Fall, weeds are the major cause of allergies, and ragweed plants are the most common.
Dander and Dust mites
Dander from pets—the tiny flecks of skin shed by cats, dogs, rodents and birds—and dust mites (specifically their droppings) can be bothersome year-round; though they worsen in winter, when houses are closed up.
Fungi and molds
Spores from indoor and outdoor fungi and molds are considered both seasonal and perennial.
