Hay Fever Treatments: A Guide

That time of year again is fast approaching. Soon, it’ll be a little warmer, pollen counts will soar, and those pesky hay fever symptoms will start to persist. While some people are able to manage this via over the counter antihistamines and nasal sprays, a vast majority of the country will find themselves unable to fend off their allergies. 

What is Hay Fever? 

Hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, is an allergic reaction to humid or windy conditions in the spring and summer months. During this time, the pollen count in the air is at its highest – interfering with the daily lives of hay fever sufferers. 

These allergens can spread indoors, as well as dominate the air outside. Pollen, fur, feathers, dust mites – even dog or cat saliva can trigger an allergic reaction in hay fever sufferers. 

Hay Fever Symptoms

Symptoms are similar to those of a common cold. However, if you’re asthmatic, you may find that your symptoms are a little more severe. 

Common symptoms of hay fever include:

  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Some loss in smell 
  • Itchy throat, nose, mouth or ears
  • Headaches
  • Lethargy 
  • Pain in the temples or forehead 
  • Shortness of breath (with asthma) 
  • Tightness of the chest (with asthma) 
  • Sinus pressure 

The Hay Fever Treatments

Unfortunately, there’s no actual way of avoiding hay fever. So, how do people manage? By reducing their exposure to these allergens, or getting hay fever treatment. 

In the majority of hay fever sufferers, the body’s immune system will start to develop antibodies. Why does it do this? Because the immune system thinks it has to, in order to protect you. 

Hay fever treatments help the body to calm down and reduce this reaction.
