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).
Respiratory allergies are a group of conditions that can cause:
- stuffy or runny nose
- itchy eyes
- sore throat
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)
