Why do I get allergies (redness in eyes, stuffy nose) inside office buildings and hotels?

Likely allergies. Allergic rhinoconjunctivitis is characterized by sneezing, runny nose, congestion, and itching of the eyes, nose, and palate when exposed to an allergic trigger. Older buildings and hotels often have dust mites, molds, and other indoor allergens that could be causing your symptoms. This condition is diagnosed by clinical history along with skin prick testing at an allergist office.
