Tree Pollen, Grass Pollen, and Ragweed Allergens are Everywhere!
In Maryland, we love the great outdoors! But when trees, flowers and grass are in full bloom, allergy sufferers might be more inclined to stay indoors.
Think You’re Safe from Allergens Indoors? Think Again!
Even if you’re lucky enough to find shelter from outdoor irritation, numerous allergens are lurking indoors, just waiting to cause an allergic reaction. Dust mites, pet dander and mold are waiting between the cracks of your floorboards, in carpeting, and even in your bed.
Common Maryland Allergens
- Oak pollen
- Grass pollen
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
Symptoms of an Allergic Reaction
Tiny particles of dust and pollen are usually filtered out through the nasal passages or airways, or pass over our skin without harm. Our immune system sometimes mistakes harmless foreign substances as being harmful. When this occurs, the immune system labels the substance as an unwanted guest and produces antibodies in defense. This reaction leads to all of the miserable symptoms which allergy sufferers experience.
