Hay fever symptoms: The sign on your skin which means you could have a pollen allergy

Hay fever – also known as allergic rhinitis – is where an allergy to something like pollen, dust or mould irritates your nose and causes cold-like symptoms. However there are rarer symptoms that could indicate you have a pollen allergy.

People with hay fever may experience acute earache or sore throats. These symptoms are less common than others but still present.

The immune system doesn’t like to feel pain and so adrenaline is produced to help you cope with discomfort, which can lead to sweating.

Another cause of sweating excessively is blocked sinuses. This can also lead to sinus headaches.

Blocked sinuses can become infected and the way in which an immune system fights off an infection, is to raise the body’s normal temperature.

According to Avogel, this can lead to hot sweats, dizziness and exhaustion.

It is commonly known that stress can lead to the body excessively sweating.

It is also known that stress can exacerbate hay fever symptoms and Avogel reports that 71 percent of patients with severe hay fever symptoms reported higher stress levels.

Hay fever can cause one to become stressed because it can ruin sleeping patterns, cause extreme fatigue, and interrupt everyday life.

Avogel suggests that if you are experiencing excessive sweating and hay fever symptoms that you should try and relax.

They say: “Try to get as much relaxation as possible. You could try out some simple breathing exercises or you could practise yoga or meditation to calm your body and mind.”

This should reduce the bursts of adrenaline inflaming your sweat glands because your body will feel relaxed.

If you are sweating excessively, this means you are losing fluids which need replacing.

Therefore drinking water is very important not only if you suffer from this symptom but also in everyday life.

Drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day will keep you hydrated and also help to think he mucus which congests your ear and nose passages.

Common hay fever medicines should be taken to help alleviate symptoms but if these conventional medicines aren’t working then a doctor can prescribe a strong antiperspirant deodorant which may help with excessive sweating.
