Why Many Pinoys Suffer From Allergic Rhinitis

Published: 17:21 PM, April 26, 2021

Allergic Rhinitis (AR) is not a stranger to many Filipino households. The general population’s living conditions, our climate, and pollution go together in contributing to the prevalence of AR in the country.

One study shows that house dust mites (HDM) are the most common indoor allergens for Filipinos. Dust mites are tiny bugs lurking in our homes that can be found in dust from our carpets, furniture, beddings and even stuffed toys. While these creatures are everywhere, they are more likely to be around in places with hot and humid climates like the Philippines. With that said, the allergic reactions to HDM in highly urbanized Metro Manila is reported to be 85%.

Many houses in the country are also home to pesky cockroaches which could trigger AR too. In fact, cockroaches also top the list of sensitizing indoor allergens for Filipinos.

Meanwhile, grass is the most common outdoor allergen in the country. Allergies to grass are very common and one example is AR. Grass pollens are harmless airborne substances, but they can trigger allergic reactions when our immune system mistakes them as a threat.

These common allergens in the country will always be everywhere to trigger our Allergic Rhinitis. That is why it is time to manage our AR by keeping our immune system balanced.
