Scientists have found that allergy sufferers with persistent stress experience more allergy flare-ups, and those with more frequent allergy flare-ups have a greater negative mood. Researchers found that 39 percent of allergy patients had more than one flare-up, and this group had higher stress than those without allergy symptoms. While there were no significant findings between allergy flare-ups and stress on the same day, a number of sufferers reported allergy flare-ups within days of increased daily stress.
