According to studies done by scientists, over 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. With most people allergies are simply "seasonal" and they come and go as the seasons come and go. Their biggest problem is usually in the summer time when pollen is at an all time high. But a number of people experience chronic, year round allergies. People with seasonal allergies often have symptoms such as itchy, runny nose, congestion, and sneezing. However, symptoms of non-seasonal allergies include: coughing, watery eyes, allergic conjunctivitis, and post nasal drip. It doesn't matter if you're a seasonal or non seasonal person, allergies are bothersome either way.
Not only do allergies make it hard to go outdoors, but indoors as well. Things like pollen, dust particles, mites, pets, mold, formaldehyde, dander, and smoke can easily cause people's allergies to heighten to the point of annoyance! Of course there are several different things that you can take medication wise for being outdoors, but what are you to do for indoors? Well one of the quick but lasting fixes for this would be to get an air purifier. Air purifiers do as the name says, they purify the air, aiding your allergies to be alleviated. So instead of your lungs filtering out all the substances that are making you have these allergic reactions in the first place, the air purifier works as a filter. If your looking for one of the best air purifier filters out there it would be a good idea to get one called Hepa.
