25% of Americans Have Allergies; 10% Have Hay fever

According to statistics an estimated 25% of the American population suffers from allergies of some type and about 10% from allergic inflammation of membranes of the nose, usually accompanied by a discharge of mucus, commonly known as hay fever. The estimates may be low since many people never seek treatment. Some may not even be aware that they have allergies since symptoms are very similar to a common cold. Hay fever reactions are mild in some people. The less fortunate experience symptoms that are severe enough to disturb sleep and trigger asthma attacks. About 40-50% of asthma attacks triggered by allergies. These airborne allergies are seasonal in nature and later become year round.
