The early signs of hay fever encompass frequent sneezing, runny or blocked nose, itchy, red or watery eyes (allergic conjunctivitis), an itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears, and a cough due to postnasal drip.
What causes hay fever to occur?
Hay fever results from the nose and/or eyes coming into contact with environmental allergens such as pollens from grasses, weeds or trees, dust mites, moulds, and animal dander.
In which months is hay fever most prevalent?
Hay fever is typically worse between late March and September when the pollen count is at its highest, particularly during warm, humid, and windy weather.
How long does hay fever usually last?
Hay fever lasts as long as the allergen remains in the air, typically 2-3 weeks per allergen, causing itching of the nose and eyes along with other nasal symptoms.
Can increased water intake alleviate hay fever symptoms?
Drinking sufficient water can help reduce hay fever symptoms, as dehydration leads to increased histamine production, which in turn triggers allergy symptoms.
When is hay fever most severe during the day?
Hay fever symptoms are often worse at night, as pollen descends with the cooling air, with most pollen landing on the ground in rural areas between 8 pm and 10 pm.
Is fatigue a common symptom of hay fever?
Yes, tiredness can be a common symptom for hay fever sufferers, often resulting from a blocked nose or allergy-related headache interfering with sleep.
