for allergic rhinitis, 17.0% for atopic dermatitis, 13.6% for allergic conjunctivitis. The study revised general
confusion factors for allergic to analyze environmental factors that may influence allergic. In terms of the
prevalence rate of allergic rhinitis by distance, the highly exposed group suffered allergic rhinitis 1.88 times
(95% CI: 1.08 - 3.29) more than the low exposed group for the past 12 months, with significant relationship
(p<0.05). In terms of the rate by participation in clean-up activities, the participated group experienced allergic
rhinitis 1.93 times (95% CI: 1.12 - 3.30) more compared to the other (p<0.05).
