Hay Fever & Allergies
Hay fever is an allergic reaction resulting in an inflammation of the nasal airways when air borne allergens, such as pollen, dust or mould spores, are inhaled by an person with a sensitized immune system. In response to the inhaled allergen the immune system triggers the production of antibodies that mostly bind to mast cells, which contain histamine. The stimulation of the mast cells by airborne allergens triggers the release of histamine, which causes the classic symptoms of hay fever such as runny nose, itching and redness.
Common Symptoms are:
- Irritation in the nose, throat and sometimes ears
- Runny nose
- Red, watery and irritated eyes
- General feeling of being unwell
