Who Gets Allergies?
Allergies can develop at any age. They commonly occur in children, but may give rise to symptoms for the first time in adulthood. Asthma may persist in adults while nasal allergies tend to decline in older age. For some time, it has been known that allergic conditions tend to cluster in families. Your own risk of developing allergies is related to your parents' allergy history.
Another major piece of the allergy puzzle is the environment. It is clear that you must have a genetic tendency and be exposed to an allergen in order to develop an allergy. Additionally, the more intense and repetitive the exposure to an allergen and the earlier in life it occurs, the more likely it is that an allergy will develop.
There are other important influences that may be associated with allergic conditions. Some of these include smoking, pollution, infection, and hormones.
