Inhalation and Food Allergens
Do you have unexplained symptoms that have been affecting your daily functioning for a while?
There is a possibility that you have an allergy to certain foods or substances in the air.
Inhalation allergens are substances that are airborne and can be inhaled. They include allergens that can cause symptoms throughout the year (perennial allergens) or during specific seasons (seasonal allergens).
What are the symptoms of inhalation allergies?
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
- Itchy nose
- Itchy eyes
- Watery eyes
If you have asthma, inhalation allergens can trigger or worsen your symptoms, including wheezing and shortness of breath.
Perennial allergens include:
- Pet allergens, which include certain proteins found in animal fur, dander, urine, and saliva.
- Dust mites: tiny relatives of spiders that are invisible to the naked eye. They live in dust and fibers of household items such as pillows, mattresses, carpets, and upholstery.
- Mold: a type of fungus that releases spores that float in the air, similar to pollen.
Seasonal allergies involve pollen. Pollen consists of microspores from trees, grasses, or weeds, which appear as fine dust on surfaces or float in the air. Tree pollen is mainly present in spring, while weed pollen is more common in autumn.
Food allergies, unlike food intolerances, involve the immune system and trigger an allergic reaction that can affect multiple organ systems in your body besides the digestive system (skin, respiratory system, etc.). In this case, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Runny nose
- Chronic cough
- Generalized or localized itching
- Facial redness
- Headaches and migraines
Symptoms often occur within minutes of consuming the offending food, but delayed symptoms can also occur.
What are the most common food allergens?
- Tree nuts
