Summer & hay fever - now what?
Inside, allergens may come amongst others from dust mites, animals, mould or pollen. Allergens can cause allergic reactions. An allergy appears when the defense system of the body develops an oversensitive reaction towards certain substances (allergens).
Each year, during hay fever season a lot of people suffer from unpleasant symptoms such as sneezing, a running nose and itchy eyes.
Hay fever season is difficult for asthma patients
Up to 80% of people suffering from asthma are also allergic to for example pollen. Many asthma patients do not only suffer from unpleasant symptoms because hay fever and asthma are closely linked, but asthma symptoms actually increase because of hay fever. The nose and the lungs form our respiratory tract. If our upper respiratory tract is irritated by pollen, the lungs might also be influenced and asthma symptoms may increase. Often the combination of asthma and allergies remains underestimated.
At the same time as spring begins, hay fever season starts and the first pollen from birch, oak, hornbeam, filbert and alder tree are spreading. People allergic to pollen know the problem and avoid to go outside if they can.
