Causes and symptoms of seasonal allergies
Seasonal allergies, also called “allergic rhinitis” or ‘hay fever”. Symptoms resemble that of a cold and are easily noticeable. These symptoms may include sinus congestion, runny nose sneezing, headaches, fatigue, red eyes… these symptoms and their period of onset make it an easily identifiable disease. Seasonal allergies can start at any age, without any reason or family history.
Generally, seasonal allergies are the result of an abnormal reaction of the body to an external substance (ragweed, pollen and grass). When the body comes into contact with this substance, it considers it as an allergen and then sets up a defense system through the production of histamine and antibodies. This defense causes symptoms of seasonal allergies.
