IS THE AIR YOU BREATHE CAUSING YOUR ALLERGY SYMPTOMS? ￼
Allergens are very common and affect about one in three New Zealanders at some time in their lives. Allergy NZ say there are many different causes of allergy, and symptoms range from very mild to potentially life threatening. Allergens are one of the major factors associated with the cause of and persistence of asthma. An allergy occurs when a person’s immune system over-reacts to substances — called an allergen — in the environment.
These allergens are found in house dust mites, pets, pollen, foods, drugs, insect stings, latex and moulds. An allergen for one person may not be a problem for another person, and everyone reacts differently.
The skin: hives, eczema and facial swelling.
The respiratory system: symptoms can affect the nose (hay fever), throat (swelling) and lungs (cough, wheeze, bronchospasm).
The gastrointestinal system: nausea, vomiting, stomach pains and diarrhoea.
The cardiovascular system: feeling faint, weakness, pallor, floppiness (particularly in infants), and collapse.
SYMPTOMS OF ALLERGIES: YOUR INDOOR AIR COULD BE TO BLAME ￼
The problem with these allergens is that they’re present almost everywhere in your home. Everyday household items like carpeting, bedding, upholstery, pillows, clothing and air can all house bacteria responsible for indoor allergies.
