More than 50 million Americans reportedly suffer from allergies with approximately 80% of those affected by indoor or outdoor allergens. Some sufferers experience short-term seasonal allergies, while a growing number experience chronic, year-round allergic reactions.

Indoor and outdoor allergies may produce nearly identical symptoms They may include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, fatigue and headaches.

There are differences however in where and when they occur. Many people are also allergic to more than one allergen so they could in fact have triggers to both indoor and outdoor allergens.

Indoor allergies are often more common during the winter and summer seasons when people are indoors more frequently due to cold or hot weather. Some common indoor allergens include:

  • Mold
  • Dust Mites
  • Pet Dander
  • Bugs & Rodents

The most common trigger for outdoor allergies results from exposure to pollens. Pollen from different sources tends to appear at different times of the year resulting in seasonal allergies. Tree pollens are typically most common in the springtime, followed by grass pollens during the summer and weed pollens during the summer and fall.

“There are ways to test the indoor environment for indoor allergens,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL Analytical, a leading allergen and indoor air quality (IAQ) testing laboratory. “If elevated allergen levels are discovered, corrective actions can be implemented to eliminate or reduce their presence. EMSL provides testing services to help people quickly identify allergens in their indoor environments.”

EMSL has sponsored an educational video about indoor and outdoor allergies. It can be seen at:
