Symptoms Of Seasonal Allergies

in Pollen

Seasonal allergies are allergic reactions which cause the inflammation of the lining of the nose. These allergies normally occur in certain season and the allergens involved are mostly from pollen of some weeds, trees or grass. Seasonal allergies are also known as hay fever. However, the term hay fever is not usually used as the allergy is not due to the cut hay but because of the living weeds, trees and grasses and the allergy does not result to fever.

Seasonal allergies are very likely to be experienced during spring when pollination is taking place. During this time, there is a lot of pollen in the air. Trees and grasses will pollinate hence releasing pollen grains in the air. The air might be full of pollen the whole of the spring season especially because trees and grasses pollinate at different times. Soon after some trees have finished the pollination process, some grasses will start and the air has no rest from pollen grains. If you expose yourself to the pollen filled air, these are the symptoms that you are likely to observe.

The first symptom of this allergy is an itchy eye that is watery and red. This is the first indication that indeed the season of pollination has actually come. For some people, this is not the first symptom. You might experience a tickle at the throat or at the roof of the mouth. This tickle is irritating and causes a funny feel in the mouth that is not comfortable. These symptoms will then lead to a runny nose. Sneezing accompanies the runny nose. By this time, there is more pollen in the air.

The runny nose might lead to wheezing to some people and coughing too. The lungs feel congested and the coughing will lead to headaches. Other than these symptoms, you might experience sleeplessness due to the change in the body status and if you sleep, it will be full of disturbances. Irritability levels are increased and dry coughs too are experienced. Some people have an impaired sense of smell or taste. The white of the eye and the inner eyelids might be inflamed in serious conditions. This is termed as allergic conjunctivitis.

In conclusion, there are remedies for these symptoms. There is no cure for the allergic reactions but there are medications that will ease the situation by ensuring that the symptoms are reduced and suppressed.
