Diagnosis: The Environment a Factor in Snoring Treatment
Numerous environmental factors may cause snoring, such as:
Allergens: Common allergens such as pollen, dust, dust mites, and animal hair can cause irritation or swelling in the nose and throat. Such allergic reactions can lead to snoring.
Air Pollution: Chemicals, sprays, fumes, and smoke are common irritating substances that can irritate air passageways and obstruct breathing.
Lack of Humidity: If the air in your home is very dry, your nose may become stuffed up, causing mouth breathing and snoring.
Heat: Recent studies have shown that the heat of the summer months can aggravate snoring symptoms.
