What happens when your body is exposed to something you're allergic to?
Your body thinks the allergen is a foreign object. It reacts and tries to protect itself. The body releases histamines.
They cause mucus membranes in your sinuses, nose, throat, and eyes to swell. The swelling keeps more allergens from entering you body.
They cause you to sneeze. Sneezing is your body's attempt to get the particles out of your body. Fluids flood the tissue in your nose. This causes congestion, itching, and runny noses.
The most common symptoms seen during an allergic reaction are coughing, sneezing, wheezing, itching, watery eyes, congestion, and a rash.
How can an air purifier help you?
These particles you are allergic to are floating around in the air. They are outside. They are inside. Indoor air is full of allergens.
Houses today are built very well. There is very little opportunity for air to circulate. This means allergens build up in the air over time.
Air purifiers clean the air. By using the proper air purifier asthma and allergy sufferers can clean all the particles out of the air.

The best air purifiers for asthma and allergy sufferers are ones with a HEPA filter. Read "What is a HEPA filter?" to learn more about HEPA filters.
Most of these allergens are 2 microns and larger. A HEPA filter will filter out 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns and larger. It can remove all the pollen and dust from the air.
