Antihistamines temporarily reduce the effects of the natural chemical histamine in the body and the symptoms caused by hay fever and other upper respiratory allergies.
Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the USA and affect more than 50 million people. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system reacts to a harmless foreign substance. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. When someone has allergies, their immune system produces an antibody called histamine and these antibodies create a medical reaction to allergens. The symptoms that result are an allergic reaction such as sneezing, itchy, watery eyes and runny nose.
While not always easy to do, it is very important to know your allergens, avoid contact with allergen and if you are on medication, to take it as prescribed by your doctor to manage your allergies. Around the home, try these simple tips: vacuum regularly and use a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter: Wash surfaces regularly cleaning moldy areas and surfaces: Use a dehumidifier.
People with upper respiratory allergies contend with this chronic illness 365 days a year and exist everywhere:
Spring – pollens from trees
Summer – grass & molds
Fall – Ragweed, mold on leaves
Winter/Indoor & Year Round – Dust mites, mold & mildew, pet dander
Anaphylaxis - A Severe Reaction

One in 50 people in the United States is affected by Anaphylaxis. This reaction can be triggered by any substance; however, it is most often caused by foods, insect stings or bites, latex and medications.
