Seasonal and Perennial rhinitis are the two types of allergic rhinitis. The former happens during the time flowers pollinate, while the other recurs all year. Although non-allergic rhinitis and are similar in symptoms, their reactions differ from each other. If an individual suffers from spring time hay fever, the cause of that allergic reaction may be tree pollens. During summer, allergic reactions may be caused by grass and weed pollens. Although fungus spores and weeds can be present all the time, these can pose as problems from late March through November. Cross-reactions with indoor allergens may be common to people who have perennial hay fever. Dust mites, feathers and animal dander may be found in pillows, beddings and the likes. The places where mold can found are in bathrooms and basements. Latex Allergy Facts For people with latex hypersensitivity, latest gloves are the most common offending products. However, there are also condoms and medical equipment that may contain latex. These products can trigger latex allergy as well. During an allergic reaction due to latex, symptoms will appear. These are eye tearing and irritation, cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, and itchiness of the skin or nose. Hypersensitivity reactions to latex may be as mild as skin rashes and be as severe as anaphylaxis. During an anaphylactic reaction, a person may experience dyspnea, development of hives, edema, and gastrointestinal problems.

Allergic rashes are generated by urioshiol upon a few hours, or even days, after contact. Urushiol may be contracted from exposure to contaminated garden or camping equipments. The poison plant leaves, stem, and roots predominantly consist of urushiol. Rapid skin absorption occurs with urushiol contact. Inhaling urushiol particles in the air is probable during poison plant combustion. Inhalation of urushiol happens during the burning of a poison plant. This produces irritation of the nasal passages, throat, and lungs. Most regions, except for Alaska, Hawaii, and the Southwest deserts, have conditions that allow for the proliferation of poison plants. The existence of poison ivy can be categorized into two. It can occur as vines or as shrubs. Areas on the north and west typically have poison ivy shrubs. In other places, poison ivy grows as vines. Poison ivy is easy to identify. Just count the number of leaflets and you will know. It will always have three leaflets attached. Seven to thirteen paired leaves on a stem of a woody shrub characterizes poison sumac. Only poison sumac has drooping clusters of green berries on its shrub. Watery and marshy areas generally have an abundance of poison sumac. Crimson berries occurring in bundles hang upright in a harmless sumac shrub. Main Allergy Symptoms The most common symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, wheezing, itchy eyes, and skin rashes. The type of allergen and the manner of exposure contribute to the type of symptoms an individual experiences. E.G., dermatitis may occur when a person accidentally applies lotion which contains chemicals he is allergic to, or he may experience vomiting if he eats food he is allergic to, or he may have difficulty of breathing if he inhales pollen on the air. If anyone in the family has allergies, other family members may develop allergies as well. When this happens, you are said to have atopic allergy. Babies who have low birth weight are more likely to inherit allergies. On the other hand, boys are also said to be more likely to inherit the condition than girls. Allergic reactions may vary from mild to severe.
