A collection of symptoms that occur after exposure to airborne pollens of certain seasonal plants (allergy to mold, dander, dust). Allergies are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system, leading to a misdirected immune response. The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins.Allergic rhinitis involves an allergic reaction to pollen.
A virtually identical reaction occurs with allergy to mold, animal dander, dust, and similar inhaled allergens.The pollens that cause hay fever vary from person to person and from region to region. Pollens that are carried by bees from plant to plant are seldom responsible for hay fever because the grains are large and have a waxy coating. Pollens that are carried by the wind are smaller and more often cause hay fever.
Examples of plants commonly responsible for hay fever include: trees (deciduous and evergreen), grasses, most flowers, and ragweed. In addition to individual sensitivity and regional plant prevalence, the amount of pollen in the air can be a factor in whether hay fever symptoms develop. Hot, dry, windy days are more likely to have increased amounts of pollen in the air than cool, damp, rainy days where pollen is washed to the ground.
Symptoms are Coughing, headache, itching of the nose, mouth, eyes, throat, skin, or any area, runny nose (rhinitis). Smell, impaired, sneezing, may be frequent, stuffy nose (nasal congestion), tearing, increased, throat, sore, wheezing.
In homoeopathy medicine like Amm carb, lyssin, allium cepa, are used for the treatment. The proper analysis of the case with the qualified homoeopathic physician will give the better results.
