What is pollen allergy (also commonly known as hay fever)?
Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis is the scientific definition of an allergic condition that affects the interconnected membranes of the eyes and nose. Many of us are familiar with the symptoms: runny noses, congestion, itchy and watery eyes. These symptoms are triggered by a hypersensitivity to airborne pollens from trees, grasses and weeds. Mold and fungi are also common triggers for allergies both inside and outside the home.
According to research conducted by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) approximately 50 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from allergic diseases and are the third most chronic disease among children. It is highly likely that you have someone close to you who suffers from seasonal allergies. There are many resources dedicated to understanding allergies and each year there are improved treatment and prevention options brought onto the market to help.
The AAFA recommends some basic prevention tips which include:
- Limiting outdoor activities when pollen counts are high.
- Keeping windows closed during pollen seasons (like Spring) and using a central air conditioning system.
- Wash your bedding in hot, soapy water once a week.
