Hay fever is a common allergic reaction to pollen from grass, trees and weeds. It is usually worse between late March and September- especially when it’s warm, humid and windy- this is when the pollen count is at its highest. It is caused when the body makes allergic antibodies (IgE) to certain substances which are known as allergens.
Grass pollen is the most common allergen (May to July), but tree (February to June) and weed (June to September) pollens can also cause the allergic reaction we know as hay fever. However, perennial allergic rhinitis can occur all year round in reaction to indoor allergens, such as pet dander, house dust mites and mould spores.
Common methods of managing hay fever include;
-Putting Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen
-wearing wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting into your eyes
-showering and changing clothes after being outside
-staying indoors during peak times
-keep windows and doors shut as much as possible
-vacuuming regularly and dusting with a damp cloth
Air Purifiers for Hay Fever
As hay fever is triggered by the presence of pollen spores in the air, using an air purifier can be a successful way to remove the airborne triggers that cause your hay fever symptoms. HEPA-type filter removes 99% of particles down to 2 microns that cause breathing issues. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. A HEPA filter is a type of mechanical air filter; it works by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps harmful particles such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke.
