Fall Allergies: Indoor & Outdoor Culprits
For many people, fall means an end of hot summer days as temperatures begin to cool and trees begin to lose their leaves. During this time of year, the cooler temperatures have many people spending time outdoors enjoying the weather or playing sports. Fall also means it is ragweed season which affects millions of people. Ragweed is considered to be the most significant allergy trigger in fall, although there are other plants that also release pollen during this time of year. Depending on where a person lives, ragweed pollen may be present from August through November. Mold is another common outdoor allergen during the fall. Piles of damp leaves or other organic material make for an ideal place for mold to grow and release spores into the air. When people who are allergic to these substances come into contact with them, their immune system releases antibodies that attack the allergens. Histamines are released into the body and trigger the allergic reactions common to so many people. In fact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that, “Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with an annual cost in excess of $18 billion. More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year.” Both pollen and mold spores can travel great distances in the outdoor air. This can be especially true during windy fall days. These air quality contaminants can be a concern to both people spending time outdoors and even those indoors as these allergens can enter homes and buildings through open doors and windows, on people’s clothes, and through air intakes in HVAC systems. For some people, these same airborne allergens could even trigger an asthma attack. For those who experience allergies all year long, they should also consider possible indoor allergens that they may be exposed to on a regular basis. Common indoor contaminants include mold, dust mites, pet dander, latex, insect and rodent allergens. These are just a few things to know about fall allergies, to learn more about allergens or other indoor air quality, environmental, health and safety issues, please visits the websites shown in the video.

Check Your Health: Allergies in the Fall
Allergies are not limited to springtime. This time of year, as fall quickly approaches, so does a new round of allergies for many people. “It can be spring, summer, fall, and depending if you’re allergic to any indoor allergens as well, you can have allergies all-year around,” says Dr. Cecilia Nguyen with Intermountain Southridge Allergy Clinic at Riverton Hospital. Dr. Nguyen says the biggest culprit of allergies in the fall are weeds. “It doesn’t really matter what’s in your neighbor’s yard or your yard because they can pollinate for miles. The windy days are going to be the days where you see a lot more pollen flying around,” says Dr. Nguyen. The most common allergy symptoms include: • Sneezing • Nasal Congestion • Watery Eyes • Itchy Eyes, Nose, and Ears If you have allergy symptoms, then a skin test might be a good idea to assess for allergies. A quick test can see if you have reactions to different pollens, molds, dust, mites, cats, dogs, horses, feathers, etc. “It’s not a needle. We don’t inspect any blood. It’s just a little plastic prong that we dip in the allergen, and we just kind of lightly scratch the top surface of your skin. The worst part for most adults is really the itching because you can’t touch it for 15 minutes,” says Dr. Nguyen. For allergy sufferers, treatment options are available – including both over-the-counter and prescription. “You can take medications like the nasal sprays – those are going to be your Flonase, Nasacort, Rhinocort, and sometimes antihistamines may be indicated if you are allergic to certain things,” says Dr. Nguyen. Another option is immunotherapy. This involves training your immune system to be comfortable seeing the allergen. Traditionally this is done through allergy shots. “We give you little bits of what you’re allergic to through shots and then hopefully train your immune system to be okay to see the allergen,” says Dr. Nguyen. Additional tips for allergy sufferers: • Monitor pollen count – especially if you’re planning to spend time outside • Wear an NIOSH rated N95mask when raking leaves, mowing the lawn, or gardening • Use a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter • Track your allergy symptoms – write down when and where you have symptoms and talk to your allergist. Together you can develop a treatment plan.

Summertime is here and for many that means summer allergies, something people always blame on the Goldenrod when in reality it is the Ragweeds. There are two types of Ragweeds in the United States and today we cover the Giant Ragweed. An obnoxious, allergy inducing plant that grows prolifically along the edge of fields and is common in the corn belt of the U.S. This video aims to help you identify it so you can decide whether to let it grow or not, chances are if you have allergies in the summer this is causing it. Growing up to fifteen feet in height and with it's leaves becoming larger than a hand it's easy to see why it's called Giant Ragweed. This plant can have many variations in it's leaf structure and sometimes even it's growing pattern. A member of the Aster family and an Ambrosia species this plant's pollen is what causes the reactions in humans. It supposedly has medicinal uses but we do not talk about any of those, just cautionary information. I thank you for watching this video I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you learned something.

What is an Allergy? What Causes Allergies ! Allergic Reaction & It's Solution !
http://homeremedies9.com/common-remedies/home-remedies-a/allergies-home-remedies/ Allergies are the most common and basic problem worldwide. Allergy symptoms range from making you miserable to putting you at risk for life-threatening reactions. According to the experts in allergy, an allergic reaction begins in the immune system. Our immune system protects us from invading organisms that can cause illness. If you have an allergy, your immune system mistakes an otherwise harmless substance as an invader. This substance is called an allergen. The immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. What Is Allergy What Ia An Allergy? What Causes Allergy?

How Allergies Work Animation - Why Allergic Reactions Occur Video - Symptoms Sneezing Treatment
Allergies: Allergens like pollen are nothing more than foreign plant antigens. The stimulus for sneezing gets triggered when allergens first enter the nasal tissue. Pollen allergens encounter the plasma cells in the nose, which respond by producing antibodies. These antibodies attach to mast cells, which are white blood cells containing the chemical histamine. As more antibodies are produced, they cause the mast cells to release histamine. Histamine then produces allergy symptoms. A stuffy and runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes help to remove the invading pollen. Medications called antihistamines may be used to help alleviate severe allergy symptoms. Music Source: Is That You or Are You You by Chris Zabriskie is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://chriszabriskie.com/reappear/ Artist: http://chriszabriskie.com/ Heredity, environmental conditions, number and type of exposures and emotional factors can indicate a predisposition to allergies. Allergies often bring to mind sneezing, a runny nose or watery eyes. While these are symptoms of some types of allergic disease, it’s important to understand that an allergic reaction is actually a result of a chain reaction that begins in your genes and is expressed by your immune system. What is happening inside your body when you have an allergic reaction? The Immune System Your immune system controls how your body defends itself. For instance, if you have an allergy to pollen, your immune system identifies pollen as an invader or allergen. Your immune system overreacts by producing antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies travel to cells that release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. This reaction usually causes symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, lining of the stomach or on the skin. Each type of IgE has specific "radar" for each type of allergen. That's why some people are only allergic to cat dander (they only have the IgE antibodies specific to cat dander); while others have allergic reactions to multiple allergens because they have many more types of IgE antibodies. An allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that does not bother most other people. People who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one thing. Substances that often cause reactions are Pollen Dust mites Mold spores Pet dander Food Insect stings Medicines Normally, your immune system fights germs. It is your body's defense system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to a false alarm. Genes and the environment probably both play a role. Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, swelling, or asthma. Allergies can range from minor to severe. Anaphylaxis is a severe reaction that can be life-threatening. Doctors use skin and blood tests to diagnose allergies. Treatments include medicines, allergy shots, and avoiding the substances that cause the reactions. Allergies An allergy is an immune response or reaction to substances that are usually not harmful. Causes Allergies are very common. Both genes and environment play a role. If both your parents have allergies, there is a good chance that you have them, too. The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances, such as bacteria and viruses. It also reacts to foreign substances called allergens. These are usually harmless and in most people do not cause a problem. Allergic reactions In a person with allergies, the immune response is oversensitive. When it recognizes an allergen, the immune system launches a response. Chemicals such as histamines are released. These chemicals cause allergy symptoms. Allergic reaction can be provoked by skin contact with poison plants, chemicals and animal scratches, as well as by insect stings. Ingesting or inhaling substances like pollen, animal dander, molds and mildew, dust, nuts and shellfish, may also cause allergic reaction. Medications such as penicillin and other antibiotics are also to be taken with care, to assure an allergic reflex is not triggered. The immune system normally responds to harmful substances such as bacteria, viruses and toxins by producing symptoms such as runny nose and congestion, post-nasal drip and sore throat, and itchy ears and eyes. An allergic reaction can produce the same symptoms in response to substances that are generally harmless, like dust, dander or pollen. The sensitized immune system produces antibodies to these allergens, which cause chemicals called histamines to be released into the bloodstream, causing itching, swelling of affected tissues, mucus production, hives, rashes, and other symptoms. Symptoms vary in severity from person to person.

Fall Allergies
Fall Allergies 082815 Natalie Vitale Reports. Notice your eyes itching, or perhaps a runny nose? We’ve got the likely culprit, fall allergies. With the fall season comes a new batch of allergies, though the symptoms are similar to their springtime counterpart the causes are quite different. “Fall allergies usually start mid August to September and even October in many cases. They are caused by Ragweed, weeds and typically the mold count is high that time of year too,” said Dr. Diane Ozog, Allergist and Immunology Specialist with Edward Medical Group. But there is relief; many over the counter medications work well for seasonal allergies. However the best medicine is to just stay away. “With allergies the basic approach is always avoidance so if you can avoid the allergen as much as possible that means less symptoms and less medicine,” said Ozog. If over the counter medications aren’t helping your symptoms, you may want to check in with your family physician.

Health Check: Fall allergies flare up
When the season transitions from summer to autumn, Minnesotans can expect things such as cooler temperatures and fall colors. But for an estimated quarter of the population, the change of season also means the arrival of allergies, and an influx of people heading to allergy specialists. "From my practice, it's probably in the realm of 100 to 200 patients per week during the peak of the season," said Dr. Tom Helm, a specialist from Allergy and Asthma Care in Maple Grove. Dr. Helm says this time of year, plants such as ragweed put out pollen, which can make life miserable for people. "Ragweed pollinates in August and September of every year, and as the level rises, people develop significant symptoms to include sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, stuffy nose, etc.," Dr. Helm said. Mold in the air is another contributing factor. Add a windy day into the mix, and you've got a recipe for even more misery. The good news is that people can buy effective over-the-counter antihistamines and nasal sprays that can provide relief. "Benadryl is the stalwart that's been around for years, but it is quite sedating," Dr. Helm said. "So the more popular medicines today include brand names such as Zyrtec, Allegra and Claritin." If you're looking to save a few dollars and buy generic versions, he says those work just as well. "But if the medicine is inadequately treating their symptoms and they're looking for some more information, then those are the people we should see," Dr. Helm said. As for when the allergy season is expected to end, doctors say that ragweed is usually gone by the first week of October, but mold will extend the allergy season until early November.

Goldenrod vs Ragweed: Which one causes allergies?
Despite the common belief, it is ragweed and not goldenrod that bothers your sinuses in autumn. Some folks may still be bothered by it if they have a broad pollen allergy, however, goldenrod is insect-pollinated, with smooth spherical pollen. Ragweed is wind-pollinated, with sharp, spiked pollen to better attach to leaves, etc (Picture the medieval weapon called a Flail). Goldenrod has such bright flowers and is so common that that's often seen first when one looks around for a culprit!

How to Treat Seasonal Allergies in Cats | Cat Allergies: Symptoms, Causes, Treatments
Allergy season can be hard on our feline friends. Pollen, dust, mold, and other common allergens can be tough to handle for both cats and homeowners. The best treatment for feline allergies is simply to avoid all points of contact between your pet and the causes of their allergies. You may need to keep a watchful eye on pollen counts in your city and be especially mindful about tracking pollens into your house. If your cat escapes for a stroll through the neighborhood, you may want to rinse off any pollen they may have trapped in their fur. If itching and inflammation is very bad this season, you may want to consider changes in diet alongside medications like antihistamines, cyclosporine or corticosteroids.

For allergy sufferers, cleaning house, especially dusting, is more than just a laborious task. It’s a continuous battle. Dealing with dust and dust mites is crucial because for approximately 20 million Americans, they cause severe allergies. If you’re one of these individuals you’ve experienced the symptoms and the constant feeling that you have a cold. While medication can help, most come with health risks. On the other hand, by regularly cleaning your home you can help keep dust allergens away.

How Allergies Work Animation. Understanding Allergic Reaction Immune System Video. Symptom Treatment
Allergens like pollen are nothing more than foreign plant antigens. The stimulus for sneezing gets triggered when allergens first enter the nasal tissue. Pollen allergens encounter the plasma cells in the nose, which respond by producing antibodies. These antibodies attach to mast cells, which are white blood cells containing the chemical histamine. As more antibodies are produced, they cause the mast cells to release histamine. Histamine then produces allergy symptoms. A stuffy and runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes help to remove the invading pollen. Medications called antihistamines may be used to help alleviate severe allergy symptoms. What Is an Allergy? It's what happens when your immune system reacts to something that’s usually harmless. Those triggers, which doctors call "allergens," can include pollen, mold, and animal dander, certain foods, or things that irritate your skin. Allergies are very common. At least 1 in 5 Americans has one. What Happens During an Allergic Reaction? It starts when you come into contact with a trigger that you inhale, swallow, or get on your skin. In response, your body starts to make a protein called IgE, which grabs onto the allergen. Then histamine and other chemicals get released into the blood. That causes the symptoms you notice. What Are the Symptoms? Your symptoms depend on how you’re exposed -- through the air, your skin, food, or through an insect sting. If you’ve got a nasal or skin allergy, common symptoms include: Itchy, watery eyes Sneezing Itchy, runny nose Rashes Feeling tired or ill Hives (a rash with raised red patches) Food allergies can also cause stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea. If an insect sting was the trigger, you’ll have swelling, redness, and pain where it stung you. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Most go away shortly after the exposure stops. Mild ones may be almost unnoticeable. You might just feel a little “off.” Moderate symptoms can make you feel ill, as if you’ve got a cold or even the flu. Severe allergic reactions are extreme. Is It Anaphylaxis? The most severe allergic reaction is called anaphylaxis. It affects your whole body. Symptoms can include: Hives and itching all over Wheezing or shortness of breath Hoarseness or tightness in the throat Tingling in the hands, feet, lips, or scalp Anaphylaxis is life-threatening, so call 911 right away. If you have an epinephrine auto-injector, use it and repeat after 5 to 15 minutes if your symptoms haven’t improved. You’ll still need medical care right after you give yourself the shots, even if your symptoms seem to stop, because a delayed reaction could still happen. Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions. Common allergens include pollen and certain food. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors. The underlying mechanism involves immunoglobulin E antibodies (IgE), part of the body's immune system, binding to an allergen and then to a receptor on mast cells or basophils where it triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals such as histamine. Diagnosis is typically based on a person's medical history. Further testing of the skin or blood may be useful in certain cases. Positive tests, however, may not mean there is a significant allergy to the substance in question. Early exposure to potential allergens may be protective. Treatments for allergies include avoiding known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended. Allergen immunotherapy, which gradually exposes people to larger and larger amounts of allergen, is useful for some types of allergies such as hay fever and reactions to insect bites. Its use in food allergies is unclear. Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people. Rates of many allergic diseases appear to be increasing. The word "allergy" was first used by Clemens von Pirquet in 1906.
