Symptoms of allergic rhinitis and the causes of its occurrence

Allergic rhinitis is associated with a group of symptoms that affect the nose, these symptoms occur when you inhale something you are allergic to, such as dust, animal dander or pollen. In this report, we learn about the symptoms of allergic rhinitis caused by plant pollen, and this type of Allergic rhinitis is the name for hay fever or seasonal allergies, according to the website pennmedicine.

Causes of allergic rhinitis


When a person with allergic rhinitis breathes in an allergen such as pollen, mold, animal dander or dust, the body releases chemicals that cause allergy symptoms. Hay fever involves an allergic reaction to pollen.

The plants that cause hay fever are trees and grasses. Their pollen is carried by the wind. The types of plants that cause hay fever vary from person to person and from region to region. The amount of pollen in the air can affect the onset of hay fever symptoms.

Hot, dry, and windy days are likely to have a lot of pollen in the air.

On cool, humid, rainy days, most pollen is washed off the ground.

Hay fever and allergies often run genetically. If both of your parents have hay fever or any other allergies, you are likely to have hay fever and allergies as well and the chance is higher if your mother has allergies.
