Most of us look forward to spring and summer, but for hay fever sufferers, they can be some of the hardest months of the year. Hay fever got its name because of the common reaction to hay, but it can be caused by dozens of allergens. The medical term for the condition, allergic rhinitis, is more accurate because it pinpoints the sneezing and runny nose associated with the disorder.
Hay fever is actually your body’s reaction to a perceived threat. The sneezing and runny nose are an attempt to rid the body of the threat, whether it’s pollen, dust mites, fungal spores, animal fur or an industrial product.
