Environmental Allergy

Another name for environmental allergies is inhalant allergies, as typically the source of the problem is something that is breathed-in.

Inhalant allergies are often triggered by substances which are outside of a person’s control, making them particularly problematic and frustrating to cope with. With a food allergy for example, an individual may have to stop consuming a particular food item, such as peanuts, and they may need to become extremely cautious about eating at restaurants. However, those individuals are able to freely eat other foods and they are able to enjoy both their home and outdoor spaces. People who suffer from inhalant allergies, however, may not be as able to eliminate the source of their reactions.
