Respiratory Allergies

Respiratory allergies are a mixed set of conditions that cause inflammation of the tissues of the nose, sinuses and respiratory tract, typically in response to an exposure to a specific substance (allergen).

Allergy Symptoms

Respiratory allergies are a group of conditions that can cause:

  • sneezing
  • stuffy or runny nose
  • itchy eyes
  • sore throat
  • coughing
  • wheezing
  • rashes

Allergy Causes

Allergies can be either year-round or seasonal (sometimes called “hay fever”).

Most allergies are caused by:
  • Pollens from plants (trees, grasses, weeds, etc)
  • Mold spores
  • Insects (dust mites, cockroaches, etc)
  • Animal dander (cats, dogs, etc)
