Your body is faced with an allergy when it produces an adverse reaction to a usually harmless substance. This substance is then known as an allergen. Examples of common allergens include pollen, dust mites and food. When your body comes in contact with the allergen, the immune system reacts, causing the classic allergy symptoms.
If you have never experienced hay fever or an allergy before talk to your doctor or pharmacist for medical advice. A lot of people initially mistake hay fever for a cold as the symptoms can be very similar.
A runny nose, itchy eyes, a headache and feeling tired. Spring and summer don’t just bring better weather, they also kickstart the hay fever season, causing such symptoms. The season can start as early as February and last well into October! That's not good news for those who are sufferers.
Hay fever is another name for a pollen allergy. Throughout most of the year, even in autumn, all flowers, grasses and trees release pollen. If you are allergic to pollen it means that the mucous membranes in the nose, eyes and throat recognise the pollen as hostile invaders. Your body’s defence mechanism will kick in, making your nose run, your sinuses block up and your eyes water. Very unpleasant.
As the hay fever season lasts for several months it can mean the membranes can get quite irritated, causing red eyes, a sore throat, and even itchy ears.
