Animal Allergies

This segment is mostly focused on allergic reactions to animals or pets that live inside people's houses, as well as the other allergies that live in the air. Many pet owners have discovered that living with their pets has caused skin problems, hives etc. However, not everybody is quite aware of the fact that many times having pets in the home can cause allergies which are airborne and in many cases more common. There are many minuscule flakes of secretions (dried) that come from an animal's skin, urine, saliva etc that are in the air and when a person breathes this in, it causes them to sneeze, have a runny nose as well as many other indications of allergic rhinitis.

Allergic rhinitis is among one of the most common of allergies. A lot of people suffer from it. There are two different ways this allergy shows itself; one is seasonal and the other recurrent. Seasonal rhinitis often affects people who are sensitive to pollens, plants, weeds, trees, and mold that is in the air. This allergy is often seen at spring, summer and the beginning of autumn (obviously this varies depending on where each person lives). Recurrent rhinitis most commonly known as perennial rhinitis causes problems to a person year round. This is usually caused by sensitivity to allergens that are in the house such as dust mites, cockroaches, and mold, as well as to pets that have fur, hair, or even feathers.

There are many different ways a person can become affected by allergies to pets. There are cases in which a person will walk into a house that has a dog or cat and it causes the person to break out into an allergic reaction almost immediately. However, there are other cases in which an allergy takes time to spring up and it can happen over time and contact; in some cases it can even take years before a person actually starts to have allergic problems while living with a pet. In some cases people have actually been able to develop a tolerance to allergic symptoms; why a person is in some cases able to develop this resistance is not yet known. Some people believe that a high amount of contact with a pet can bring on a type of immunological resistance, however, this has only happened in some cases.
