Hay fever has nothing to do with hay!! In the beginning of the century during the time of harvest ,in august, people started getting allergies and thought it was due to hay. Hay fever is also known as Allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis, affects an estimated 40-50 million Americans. They are divided into seasonal allergic rhinitis(hay fever) and perennial allergic rhinitis, which are caused by pollen, animal allergens, dust mites and indoor mold.
Symptoms, which can be very severe, include nasal and eye itching, stuffiness, sneezing, nasal discharge, and post nasal drip. These symptoms cause much suffering and often interfere with your ability do daily activities as well as get adequate sleep.
