When irritants enter the nasal passages, throat, eyes, and lungs, the body begins a series of reactions to get the irritants out. During certain times of the year, millions suffer seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever.
When allergens become prevalent in the air, it triggers an allergic reaction from the body.
Some common seasonal allergy triggers include:
- Pet Dander
- Insect Bites
The immune system produces specialized cells called Immunoglobulin E (IgE), antibodies that release chemicals, which include histamines, to attack and kill the substances that send your body into a frenzy. Histamines are the cause of your seasonal allergy symptoms, which can make you miserable during certain times of the year.
