Remedies, treatments and care for Hay Fever
Allergies, a.k.a. allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions.
Hay fever is an allergic disorder characterized by an exaggerated immune response to pollen grains and other substances. Typically, if you suffer from hay fever in the spring, you're probably allergic to tree pollens. Grass and weed pollens may be causing your allergic reaction during the summer. In autumn, weeds may plague you, and fungus spores cause problems primarily from late March through November but can be present year round.
