About 20-30% of India’s population suffers from at least one of the allergic diseases.“In the past years,
there has been an ~15-20% increase of allergy incidence in Chennai. House dust mites (~50%) is the leading allergen in Chennai followed by pollen (23%), insect (16%) and food (1-5%) allergens. Allergic rhinitis is prevalent in about 42% of people between 20 –40 years. Prevalence of coexisting allergic rhinitis & asthma is highest amongst children & young adults (5- 20 years) at 45% prevalence.”

Commenting on the allergy trend in India, Dr. A B Singh, Emeritus Scientist(Ex ) , Institute of Genomics
and Integrative Biology,  Delhi and  Secretary of Indian College of Allergy ,Asthma and Applied Immunology ,said “Top allergies observed in India are that of respiratory, skin, food and dust mites. 80% of allergy cases in India are hereditary. Dr. A B Singh also spoke of his observation on  pollen allergy trend - “Pollen allergens from trees, grasses,  flowers and weeds cause respiratory allergies in 20% of the India’s allergic population. The trend increases at the onset of spring and autumn.”  Dr Singh has identified important pollen allergens of the country as a result of more than 30years of experience in research. Allergies are an over-reaction of the immune system in the form of antibodies to exposed proteins which are not necessarily harmful. These antibodies cause an allergic reaction which cause symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, lining of the stomach or on the skin. Some symptoms include incessant sneezing, runny nose (rhinitis), difficulty breathing, hives and dermatitis. Allergies if undiagnosed or ill-managed may culminate to persistent allergic rhinitis and severe asthma.
