Allergies happen when your immune system overreacts to a certain allergen e.g., pollen, pet dander, bee venom, and so many other triggers.
More than 50 million Americans suffer from an allergy-related condition each year, making allergies the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. This includes hay fever, asthma, conjunctivitis, hives, atopic dermatitis, and sinusitis.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recorded at least 20 million cases of Americans 18 and older who have been diagnosed with rhinitis – commonly known as hay fever – in 2015. Another 20 million Americans were found with respiratory, food, or skin allergies.
Your risk of developing allergies is higher if you have the following:
