The good thing about indoor allergies is that the environment is much easier to control. It is important to know what causes your negative reaction, so be on the lookout for some common triggers such as dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and mold. Other possible causes are smoke from cigarettes and fireplaces as well as strong odors from perfume or household cleaners. In this video, Dr. Preeti Parikh explains how to control these triggers to keep your home allergy-free.
