Allergies are the worst. Many people who don't suffer from the condition think of them as more of a slight annoyance than a disease. Allergies can be a severe problem, however, and even mild symptoms can keep kids from school and adults out of work.
Whether you suffer from pollen, food or pet allergies, they can truly affect your quality of life. Unfortunately, studies have shown that having one allergy can worsen another. Pet allergies, for example, have been found to increase hay fever symptoms.
"If you have ongoing symptoms from perennial allergies, as soon as you add another allergen into the mix, your symptoms develop much faster, and you may have a harder time dealing with it than others," explained Dr. Anne Ellis, an assistant professor at Queen’s University’s Department of Medicine and Department of Microbiology and Immunology. These findings were part of a study that Ellis and her team conducted at the Environmental Exposure Unit (EEU) at Kingston General Hospital. The results were published in a recent issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
