What causes nasal allergy congestion?
Allergies happen when the immune system treats certain harmless substances as allergens, which your body considers a threat.1 When you’re exposed to these small antigens, your body produces antibodies and histamines, which cause allergic and inflammatory reactions.1 The result — you guessed it — is nasal allergy congestion and other allergy symptoms.1
Tips for managing nasal allergy congestion
Avoid allergens: Prevention is a great way to manage allergies before they start. Keep your home clean and free of pet dander, dust, and other indoor allergens. Installing air cleaners with certified asthma and allergy friendly filters is an effective way to reduce allergens. 2
