What is Hay Fever?
Hay fever is an extremely common condition where airborne pollen triggers an allergic reaction in the sufferer. Up to one in five people are affected by it at some point in their lives. There are three different types of pollen which you may be allergic to, these are: tree pollen, grass pollen and weed pollen.
The pollen particles are released at different times throughout the year and sufferers generally find the time between late March-September to be the worst, as that is when the pollen count is highest. Unfortunately, there is no cure for hay fever. However, symptoms can be relieved with treatment and people may find that their hay fever begins to get better they get older.
Hay Fever Symptoms
Many symptoms of hay fever can be mistaken for the common cold, this is because there are a lot of similarities between the two conditions.
Common symptoms of hay fever include:
- Irritation of the eyes
- Sneezing or coughing
- Itchiness in the throat or ears
- Blocked nose
- Headaches or pains in your temples
- Watery eyes
Causes of Hay Fever
Typically, hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne pollen, so if there is a high pollen count in the air your allergy symptoms will be much worse.
Dust mites and animal fur are other common causes of hay fever symptoms.
Hay Fever Diagnosis
Your doctor will perform a physical exam and ask you about your medical history to diagnose hay fever.
They may recommend a skin prick test to check for an allergic reaction after materials that can trigger allergies are pricked into your skin. Alternatively, they may give you an allergy blood test to measure your immune system's response to specific allergens.
Hay Fever Treatment
It is rare for hay fever to create any type of medical complication. Nonetheless, it can have an impact on the sufferer’s life and productivity at work or school. Hay fever can last weeks or even months, meaning it can become very frustrating, especially if symptoms such as a loss of smell or irritation begin to affect your daily life.
Avoiding pollen is the most effective way of getting rid of hay fever, but that is almost impossible as pollen is dispersed throughout the air that we breathe. The NHS recommend taking certain measures, such as using Vaseline around your nose, trapping pollen so it’s not inhaled, and showering or changing clothes as having been outside.
You can also buy air filters for your home which remove pollen particles and vacuuming regularly also helps to remove dust which may contain pollen. You should avoid working or being outside where possible.
You can also take antihistamines treatments such as tablets or sprays to relieve hay fever symptoms.
