Living in the “information age” makes
finding allergy-relief tips easy. Unfortunately, there are a lot of allergy myths out there.
So, let’s look at three common allergy beliefs and do a little myth-busting. Number one:
Hypoallergenic dogs don’t cause allergies. That’s a big myth. Certain breeds are often
sold as “hypoallergenic” because they are light shedders. But it’s not fur that
causes allergies… It’s dander that triggers symptoms, and all dogs produce dander. There
is no such thing as a “hypoallergenic” dog. Number two: Adults don’t develop new
allergies. Again, not true. Allergies usually develop during childhood and adolescence,
but adults still do develop allergies, often after relocating or changing jobs, likely
because they’re exposed to new allergens. Number three: Decorative flowers cause nasal
allergies. Yep, this one is also false. The pollen produced by decorative flowers is usually
too large to become airborne, making it unlikely to cause allergies. However, the fragrance
of some flowers can aggravate — but not cause — allergy symptoms in some people. Separating
allergy myths from facts can help you better manage your symptoms so you can get on with
your day. Try Zyrtec for powerful allergy relief. And get savings at Zyrtec-dot-com.
