Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen that occurs seasonally from early Spring through Autumn. The body sees the pollen as a harmful infection, so its immune system releases histamines in defense. The histamines create reactions which produce these symptoms:
Asthma sufferers may also experience:
Hay fever symptoms may last weeks and months, unlike a cold which lasts a couple of weeks.
There is no cure for hay fever, but your pharmacist can recommend treatments, such as antihistamine tablets or drops and nasal sprays. If your symptoms don't improve after recommended treatments, see your GP. Your GP may recommend steroid treatment.
There are additional things you can do at home to help ease your hay fever symptoms:
It's important to treat hay fever because symptoms can worsen and it disrupts your daily life. It can also exacerbate asthma symptoms in susceptible individuals.
When pollen enters the body, the immune system mistakes the harmless substance for an infection and releases a chemical called histamine. This chemical causes blood vessels to become dilated and inflamed. It can also cause itching, runny nose, sneezing and watering eyes in an attempt to eradicate the pollen
Desloratadine prevents this allergic reaction from occurring by blocking histamine receptors in the body.
