25 Of The Most Common Allergy Triggers

Pin It


Up to 50 million Americans are affected by some type of allergy and at least 35% are affected at some stage in their lives. In most people, allergies first appear during infancy or childhood. It can show up in different ways including runny nose, itching, rashes, etc.

Here are 25 of the most common allergy triggers experienced by people all over the world.

  1. Dust Mites
  2. Of all the rooms in the home, the bedroom often contains the most dust mites. It’s also where you spend ⅓ of your life in. Dust mites feast on flakes of human skin and expel feces that contain DerP1, a very potent allergen that can cause asthma-like symptoms, eczema or chronic sinus problems.

    Solution
    Change bed linens at least once a month. Rotate your mattress while you’re at it. Pillows should be replaced every 2-3 years, comforters every 5-6 years, and mattresses every 10. Along with wear and tear issues, over time all of the above becomes a haven for dirt and allergens, especially dust mites.

  3. Insect Sting
  4. Normally, you’ll develop redness and swelling at the site of an insect bite. That is normal. However, an allergic reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts to the venom from the sting. It could be in the form of swelling (face, throat, tongue) or itchy hives all over the body.

    Solution
    A sure way to avoid such complications is to keep your surroundings safe. Get an exterminator to identify and destroy the hives and nests in and around your home. I kid you not but if you wear lots of perfume and bright colored clothes, you might come across to a stinging insect as a flower. When in the garden, avoid wearing open toed shoes or going barefoot.

  5. Pollen
  6. Pollen allergies are seasonal, happening mainly during spring and fall. A pollen that is present in the air can land in a person’s eyes, nose, lungs, and on their skin to set up allergic reactions like hay fever, eye allergies and allergic asthma.

    Solution
    Keep your house and car windows closed all the time to prevent pollens from drifting in. Check the weather forecast for hot, dry and windy days as those are peak allergy days. Pollen is usually emitted between 5-10am so avoid staying outdoor for long periods during those times. Use a mask and protective glasses when mowing the lawn. Put your clothes in the washer after coming in from outdoor activities and take a shower, especially before crawling into bed.
