If you have a running or stuffy nose or you sneeze a lot or if your eyes, mouth or skin is too itchy, then you may have allergic rhinitis- an allergic condition that occurs 1 in 3 individuals.
Allergic rhinitis is also called hay fever though it has nothing to do with fever or being near hay. Like any other allergy, when a body’s immune system becomes sensitive, it overreacts with the environment which in turn causes an allergy.
There are two different forms of allergic rhinitis, namely,
Seasonal - A seasonal allergy occurs during weather seasons like spring, autumn and summer. This is caused by allergic sensitivity to airborne mold spores or to pollens from trees and weeds.
Perennial – An allergy that experiences year round symptoms is caused by dust mites, pet hair or cockroaches or mold.
