Are your allergies interfering with your social life?

22% of Americans missed five outdoor events in the past year due to allergies.

A survey conducted by ZYRTEC and OnePoll of 2,000 adults examined how allergies affect their daily lives.

68% of respondents remember a time last year when they or someone was suffering from allergies.

One in five (22%) feel they “always” or “often” have to make sacrifices when it comes to spending time outdoors due to allergies.

Allergy sufferers also say their symptoms affect their ability to think clearly (61%).

Additionally, 29% feel self-conscious about allergy symptoms and 67% worry that they will be less pleasant to others when their allergies intensify.

If allergies didn’t affect them as much, allergy sufferers said they would do more outdoor activities, such as picnics (40%), going to the park more often (39%) and hiking (32%).

“We’re seeing allergy season start earlier and last longer, which means common allergy symptoms like sneezing and itchy eyes can have a real impact,” said Dr. Tania Elliott, allergist and partner at ZYRTEC.

“If left untreated, allergies can be a real burden not only on your plans, but they can also cause lack of sleep and reduce your productivity.”
