National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month

National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month

 

Family trips to the zoo, picnics in the park, spring nights by the campfire, walks through your neighborhood, a morning run before work, sneezing so much you have to go back inside. One of these things is not like the other. 

The weather is getting warmer, which means lots of outdoor family fun. But, springtime is allergy season so warmer weather often means watery eyes and itchy noses. That’s why the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America made May National Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month. There’s no better time to get educated on allergies and asthma than springtime.

More than 60 million Americans have asthma and/or allergies.1 With high pollen counts in the spring, pollen allergies are one of the most common allergy types. But, you probably know someone who can’t eat peanuts or won’t go near the cat when they come to visit your home. People can have allergic reactions to a lot of things including pets, mold, latex, insects, foods, and medicine.2

About 26 million Americans have asthma.1 Some are born with asthma, but asthma can also be a result of an allergic reaction, respiratory infection, or your environment.3 Because asthma and allergies are both deeply related to your surrounding environment, knowing what can trigger asthma or allergies is one of the best ways to prevent breathing troubles or breakouts.

Because so many families and children struggle daily with sensitivities due to allergies and asthma, it’s important to choose products that allow you to breathe easier (literally). It can be hard to find products that don’t trigger rashes, runny noses, watery eyes, or sneezing. Several BETTER LIFE products are hypoallergenic, including Hand and Body Soap, Hand and Body Lotion, Dish Soap, Laundry Detergent, and Dryer Sheets. We’re doing our part to help people with allergies and asthma feel more comfortable using our products. Here’s to less sneezing and better cleaning!
