What is hay fever?

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen. & effects many of us at different stages of the year, depending on the type of pollen they're allergic to. Tree pollen allergies are triggered between March and May, while grass pollen occurs between May and July, and weed pollen allergies Hay fever is the same as any other allergic response: your immune system identifies a foreign substance entering the body and attempts to remove it – initiating an inflammatory response. In the case of hay fever, the foreign body is pollen, which is harmless.


Hay fever is usually worse between late March & September, especially

when it's warm, humid & windy.
