As many as 50 million people in the US—about one in five—have allergies. This includes millions of children. Allergy symptoms can be more than bothersome or irritating. They can interfere with your day-to-day activities and sleep. Allergies are the most common reasons for loss of productivity, missed work or school and an overall poor quality of life. Allergies can first occur at any stage in life, from infantcy to late adult.
- runny nose
- post nasal drip
- watery eyes
Symptoms that may not be recognized as allergy related include:
- loss of taste or smell
- low productivity/poor concentration
- sleep disturbances
Allergies are triggered by a variety of things, including pollen, dust, mold, and/or food.
