What Causes Allergies?
How to Prevent Allergies
Allergies impact many people year-round and unfortunately everyone is at risk for getting them. According to the CDC, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year. While some allergies are seasonal, others can be related to health conditions like asthma or sinusitis. Allergies can also be caused by reactions to food, bee stings, pets, and drugs to name a few.
Allergic reactions can be prevented if the right precautions are taken. While some are minor or just bothersome, other allergic reactions can be severe and life-threatening.That’s why it’s important to understand symptoms and treatment to stay healthy.
