Managing Allergies at Work

Do you space out at work due to allergy symptoms or medication?

By Gina Shaw
WebMD Feature Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD

It's hard enough to cope with allergies on the weekend, but dealing with allergies at work is even more challenging.

Ask anyone who's ever dozed off in the middle of an important meeting because of allergy symptoms or medications.

"Allergy symptoms are the No. 2 reason adults miss work," says James Sublett, MD, a board-certified asthma and allergy specialist in Louisville, Ky.

The average worker with allergies misses about one hour per week over the course of a year. But that sick time is often concentrated during peak allergy periods. An Ohio State University study showed that allergy sufferers can miss up to 32 hours of work in a week when allergens are at their peak. And with 20 to 50 million Americans suffering from some form of seasonal allergies, all that lost work really adds up.

The effect of allergies at work has been called "presenteeism" -- being at work, but out of it. A 2001 study in a telephone call center found a significant correlation between spiking pollen counts and decreased productivity -- about 10% -- for workers with allergies.
