Hay Fever

Hay fever is a common allergic condition that affects up to one in five people at some point in their life. 

Symptoms of hay fever include:

  • sneezing
  • a runny nose
  • itchy eyes

You’ll experience hay fever symptoms if you have an allergic reaction to pollen.

Pollen is a fine powder released by plants as part of their reproductive cycle. It contains proteins that can cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed.
