The most common inhaled allergen is dust! More precisely, dust mites
and their wastes (every house has them, no matter how clean).
- pollen (ie. hayfever)
- animal dander (especially cats)
Most common symptoms:
- CLEAR runny nose and sneezing
- itchy or stuffed nose
- itchy, runny eyes
Symptoms are generally worst in the early morning, for 2 reasons:
1. pollen counts are highest
2. you've been sleeping for hours in a room filled with dust
