In the nose, they cause hay fever (allergic rhinitis) in individuals who are sensitized. Asthma, allergic laryngitis, and itchy eyes are other consequences. The culprits are also called inhalant allergens, and they include a variety of plant and animal material, usually protein, which is harmless to people who are not allergic. Anyone can be allergic to any number of different things. An allergist can perform skin testing to find out which ones affect you.
