Allergies: Avoiding Indoor Triggers

Allergic rhinitis causes symptoms like sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose. But you can control these symptoms with medicine and by avoiding the things that cause them (allergens). If you are allergic to indoor allergens, such as dust mites, animal dander, and mold, you can take some simple steps to get them out of your house.

By doing these things, you may have fewer symptoms or less severe symptoms.
