This time of year can be the most problematic for hay fever sufferers.
14% of the population suffers from Hay fever in the UK.*
Hay fever is the common term for the condition known as Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis. Hay fever symptoms are brought on by Pollen particulates. Pollen particulates of sub-micron size float about in the atmosphere and It is for this reason, that it is a seasonal condition that takes place between February and October.
The allergic reaction to pollen particulates happens because of the presence of protein molecules in the pollen. Certain pollen proteins act as an allergen which trigger the immune system into a response. Histamine is released into the body which can cause the following symptoms: nasal irritation, sneezing, runny nose, sore eyes and mucous build up.
For hay fever sufferers the relief available from the use of OTC medicines is symptomatic and variable in results. For hay fever sufferers who cannot bear to go outside during these seasons, the solution to the problem could be to use the Respro® Allergy™ mask.
