I have alkergy rhinitis! Some asked me to swim in the beach and told me it s good to you if u have allergy rhinitis?

Usually: The humidity is helpful unless you have mold or dust mite allergy. Usually the winds are blowing inland and as there is nothing in the ocean that pollinates then the air coming off the water has relatively less, pollen.

What is allergy?

What is allergy?

Allergy: Is an exaggerated immunological reaction (sneezing, difficulty breathing, itching, skin rash) to substances (pollen, animal dander), situations or physical states that do not produce similar effects in most people. It can also be defined as altered bodily reactivity to an antigen when a person is first exposed, such as to bee venom, that is so severe that a second sting may be fatal. Hope this helps

For environmental allergies, new generation antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays and allergy injections are current standard of care. Food allergy treatment is avoidance and Epinephrine in case of an accidental exposure. Research is being done on food oral desensitization, but not yet ready for "prime time".

Are allergies inherited?

Are allergies inherited?

Yes.: Yes, we do see allergies in families. Your risk of allergies increases if one parent has allergies, and is even higher if both parents suffer from allergies. Interestingly, we are seeing that exposure to allergens may also play a part in the development of allergies in children. Rural areas, with high levels of plant and animal allergens, actually have lower levels of allergic disease in kids.
