Asthma Allergens

Introduction to Allergens causing Asthma

Substances that are foreign to the body and can cause an allergic reaction in certain people are Allergens. Allergens are universally in the world around us. Examples of common allergens are pollen, foods, and mold.The environment that we live, contain animal and plant life varieties, most of which can become an allergen source, allergic reaction triggers. The main cause of seasonal allergic rhinitis is pollen. But, if nasal stuffiness, sneezing, watery eyes, and continuous drip trouble you regularly, then you most probably have nonperiodic hay fever, occasionally referred to as perennial allergic rhinitis. This condition is usually caused by indoor allergens such as dust mites, cockroach parts, mold, and animal dander.
