Frequently Asked Questions

How does hay fever devlop? 

Hay fever develops because some people are allergic to pollen. Not all of them are allergic to all kinds of pollen. They have allergic reactions only to particular types. Due to this fact, it’s helpful if you can identify that trigger your reaction to be able to prevent it. 

Almost 90% of hay fever patients in the UK react to grass pollen and this type is difficult to avoid in the summer. Other kinds of pollen that people are usually allergic to come from weed, dock, nettles, and trees. They become widespread in early spring.

There’s no explanation to why some individuals are allergic to pollen and others remain unaffected. Also, we don’t know why some people develop this allergic reaction over time. 

However, there are some well-known factors that upset the immune system. Research shows that tobacco exposure during childhood contributed to hay fever. It can also run in the family.

What are the symptoms of hay fever? 

Symptoms of hay fever or pollen allergy can either develop during childhood or over time. They are:

  • Sneezing
  • Wheezing
  • Tiredness
  • Congested or runny nose
  • Coughing
  • Itchiness of the ears, eyes, lips, or throat

They happen when the body releases histamine after you have had contact with pollen. 

When does hay fever usually happen? 

It’s good news that you can’t have hay fever throughout the year. The occurrence of this kind of allergy depends on pollen and its density in the air. Those who have pollen allergies get some respite during winter as there’s no pollen in the air. 

However, as the quantity of pollen in the air rises in spring and summer, the symptoms of hay fever usually appear. 

How is hay fever treated? 

Avoiding the allergens is the best way to prevent symptoms from appearing. However, this is impossible, especially in spring and summer. Therefore, seeking medication or treatment is the wise thing to do for relieving your symptoms.

The good news is that there are hay fever tablets, such as Fexofenadine and Telfast, that can provide relief. True Medical can offer various treatments which are in the form of a tablet, nasal spray, and eye drops. The soothing effects of these medications will improve your quality of life and reduce the irritating symptoms.

Every kind of treatment for hay fever aims at a certain body part. For example, a nasal spray is dedicated to appeasing the swollen nasal passage. Antihistamines are the medications that stop symptoms from arising.

Even though pollen can’t be avoided completely, it helps if you shut your doors and windows to lower the chances of exposure. It’s also good if you do daily vacuuming of your house. You could also add a pollen filter to your car to prevent it from coming in. Also, spend less time in grassy areas during spring and summer.
