Hayfever: Types and Symptom

Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hayfever, has two different types: seasonal and perennial hayfever. Seasonal hayfever can be caused by outdoor wind-borne allergens like pollen from trees, weeds and grass. Perennial hayfever can occur year-round often caused by indoor allergens, such as dust mites, pet dander and indoor moulds.[1]

 

Hayfever is characterised by the following symptoms:

– Sneezing

– Runny nose

– Itchy nose

– Blocked nose

– Sinus pain and congestion

 

WHAT CAUSES OUR SYMPTOMS?

Allergens are allergy-causing particles that travel through the air. Below are the most common types of allergens.

 

– Animal allergens, minute airborne particles produced by pets like dogs or cats called “pet dander.”

– Indoor allergens, these include mould and particles from dust mites. These allergens are with us all year long.

– Tree pollen, occurs at certain times of the year and is especially prevalent in autumn.

– Outdoor allergens, these are the seasonal allergies that include pollen from grass and weeds.
