Do you have an allergy? Do these allergies  affect your breathing? There are actually several different types of allergies that can affect how you breathe. They can hit adults and children alike and they can be very frustrating and in some rare cases, even life threatening. What do you know about allergies that affect breathing and how you can prevent and maintain these allergies?

There are different types of allergies that can affect your breathing or cause allergy-induced asthma, also making it difficult to breathe. This can seriously impact your life so that you can not take part in normal daily activities. Some people become severely worse when they go outdoors so this can prevent you from taking part in outdoor activities, playing sports or even just going for a walk.

Some people are seriously allergic to indoor allergens, pet dander, mold and other indoor causes that can make it very difficult for their daily lives. This will change the way you live your life and if it goes untreated, it can be very harmful. You may not be able to have a family pet, clean certain areas of your home by yourself and you may have to take special precautions such as removing carpeting from the home, using an air purifier and more just to be able to relax in your own home. Going to visit in other people’s homes can be a real problem for you as well.

How can you know if you have allergies that affect breathing? Often this condition is mistaken for the common cold or flu but it may last for many weeks or months. Most people have what is referred to as “seasonal allergies” meaning that they will experience symptoms during certain seasons of the year and other times they will be symptom free. Some symptoms of allergies that affect breathing are sneezing (often the sneezes come in sets of threes), watery eyes, itchy eyes, trouble sleeping due to stuffy nose or breathing problems and puffy or itchy skin on the face and other parts of the body.

There are many allergens in the air in our homes and offices and also outdoors that can affect our breathing. Different people have different types of allergies with different triggers but common ones include pet dander, mold, dirt and dust, food allergies, pollen and allergic reaction to certain medications. If you suffer from allergies that affect breathing, talk with your doctor about your triggers, symptoms and how you can manage your allergies and your breathing to remain healthy.
