Hay Fever
 
Standard Definition

See also – Allergies and Sensitivities, and Sinusitis

Hay fever is an allergic condition triggered by inhalant substances (frequently pollens), which leads to sneezing and inflammation of the nose and conjunctiva of the eyes.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

The allergic reaction occurs within the nasal mucous lining, resulting in the release of histamine and other inflammatory substances. The culprits include; pollens, grasses, or ragweed, which produce a seasonal variation; animal fur; dust, insect debris, household mites; chemicals including cigarette smoke; changes in temperature or humidity. People with inhalant allergies are likely to also have food allergies. A hypoallergenic diet has been reported to help people with asthma and hayfever.
