If you have ever woken up with congestion, irritation, and red, watery eyes in the morning you know how depressing it is to start that day. But do you know the reason for this condition? If you are experiencing the symptoms mentioned above then most probably you are experiencing morning allergy symptoms.
Morning allergies can be caused by a variety of circumstances. If your symptoms are worse in the morning, they could be caused by dust mites, which like to live in people’s mattresses. However, pollen and pet dander can also trigger allergies.
It is typical to wake up sneezing when you have allergies, whether you have hay fever or a dust mite allergy. There are various reasons why this could occur, including:
Morning allergy symptoms are the same as allergy symptoms like that at any time of day. However, morning allergy symptoms can be more severe. They may include the following:
Cover your mattress and pillow with a dust mite-proof cover. Take an antihistamine before going to bed every night. To avoid dust accumulation, clean areas at least once a week and keep your bedroom clutter-free. Vacuum your carpet at least once a week with a filter vacuum.
Allergies are diagnosed by doctors based on your symptoms and tests that confirm an allergic reaction. Morning allergies are identified when your symptoms are most noticeable in the morning. The diagnosis may include:
Your doctor or an allergist (a specialist who specializes in allergies and allergy-induced asthma) will take your medical history, including whether you have allergies or asthma in your family. The doctor will also perform a physical examination.
Your doctor will assess your symptoms, including what causes them and when they occur most frequently.
This includes tests like skin tests, blood tests or both
Don’t allow your morning allergies to get the best of you. Whether you have hay fever or nonallergic rhinitis, the techniques above can help you stop sneezing, congestion, as well as other allergy symptoms so you can wake up refreshed and ready to face the day.
Allergies in the morning can also interfere with your quality of sleep at night. Consult a doctor if you are unable to control your allergy symptoms on your own or if your symptoms are severe.
To discover the cause of your symptoms and rule out other issues, you may require prescription medicine or allergy testing.
