Abstract

Hay fever is a common allergy characterized by an array of symptoms involving the nose, eyes, throat, ears, and skin. These symptoms include nasal congestion, sneezing, and production of clear, watery discharge; conjunctival irritation with runny, itchy eyes; throat soreness and irritation from postnasal drip; ear pain and the feeling of ear pressure; and generalized fatigue, irritability, and headaches. Hay fever sufferers may also have concurrent asthma with its wheezing and coughing. Hay fever’s symptoms can occur during a specific season, such as spring, continuously throughout the year, or even sporadically without any pattern.
