Despite the common association of nasal allergies with the so-called "allergy seasons", the unpleasant symptoms experienced by many nasal allergy sufferers can often be caused by both seasonal outdoor and year-round indoor allergens. These different allergens are extremely diverse and can include virtually anything a person could come in contact with inside or outside during the course of their daily lives. Indoor allergies are generally considered to be year-round allergies because the various environmental triggers that might cause symptoms can manifest at any time regardless of the season.
Indoor nasal allergy symptoms are frequently caused by allergens such as animal or pet dander, dust, mold, or the activity of insects, among other things commonly found indoors year-round. Outdoor allergies, on the other hand, are often said to be seasonal allergies because they are generally brought on by things like plant pollen, airborne mold, and grass or tree clippings, which tend to be found in their highest concentrations only during certain times of the year.
The most common and effective advice for those suffering from allergic rhinitis tends to involve being aware of the specific allergens responsible and doing their best to avoid them. However, while it may be possible to avoid many outdoor seasonal allergies by remaining inside during peak allergy seasons, those who suffer from year-round indoor allergies may still have difficulty finding relief. Furthermore, in cases where efforts to limit one's exposure to an allergen have either not been practical or effective, many sufferers of year-round indoor nasal allergies may also require additional symptom relief.
When indoor nasal allergy symptoms are not effectively reduced by efforts to avoid the triggers that cause them, year-round allergy sufferers can talk to their health professional about potential treatment options, such as Nasonex nasal spray. When taken as directed, clinical evidence has shown that Nasonex nasal spray is able to both prevent and relieve nasal allergy symptoms, such as runny nose, congestion, sneezing and itching, that are associated with both seasonal outdoor and year-round indoor allergies in most people.
In addition to its clinically-proven effectiveness in treating year-round indoor nasal allergy symptoms, the primary active ingredient in Nasonex nasal spray (mometasone furoate monohydrate) is both non-habit-forming and non-drowsy. These properties allow Nasonex nasal spray to be considered appropriate for daily use in preventing and relieving year-round indoor nasal allergy symptoms for as long as medically necessary.
