Hayfever Symptoms

Hayfever can cause a variety of symptoms in the nose, throat and eyes

Hayfever is caused by an allergic (or abnormally strong) response to pollen coming from grass, flowers and trees. It is sometimes descriptively referred to as ‘pollinosis’ – inflammation due to pollen.

HayfeverHayfever is part of the group of conditions known to doctors as allergic rhinitis, which can be defined as allergies to airborne substances causing inflammation in the nose (rhinitis) and also the eyes and throat.

Symptoms of hayfever are extremely variable. One can be very troubled one spring and experience little or no symptoms the next year. Symptoms may also vary from one month to another for no apparent reason. Of course, the weather can be responsible for some of this fluctuation.

Another factor is the type of pollen one is allergic to:

  • Tree pollen tends to affect people in spring
  • Grass pollen affects people in late spring and summer
  • Weed pollen can be found at high levels in late summer and autumn
    People suffering from hayfever can also display allergies to animals (animal fur, hair or dander) and dust mites. In addition, they will also have a greater tendency to suffer from asthma and eczema.

  • Itching in the throat or nose
  • Blocked or runny nose
