Hay fever is a common allergic condition that affects up to one in five people at some point in their life.
Hay fever symptoms vary in severity and may be worse some years, depending on the weather conditions and pollen count.
The time of year your symptoms start will depend on the types of pollen you’re allergic to.
The symptoms of hay fever include:
-runny or blocked nose
-itchy, red or watery eyes (allergic conjunctivitis)
-an itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
-cough, caused by postnasal drip (mucus dripping down the throat from the back of the nose)
Less commonly, you may also experience:
-the loss of your sense of smell (anosmia)
-facial pain (caused by blocked sinuses)
-tiredness and fatigue
Even though your hay fever symptoms may be mild, they can interfere with your sleep and your daily activities at school or work.
