Home Remedies and Herbs for Hay Fever (Rhinitis)

What is Hay Fever (Rhinitis)?

Hay fever, also known as rhinitis, is a set of symptoms triggered by an allergic reaction to pollen. People who are susceptible to hay fever will experience hay fever symptoms every spring and into the summer and fall when plants such as trees, flowers and weeds release pollen particles, which get sent into the air.1
 
What Causes Hay Fever (Rhinitis)?

Hay fever is primarily caused by pollen allergens. Certain people are triggered by pollen and produce an autoimmune reaction that causes hay fever symptoms. Other people experience hay fever to due allergens like dust mites or pet dander.1,2

People develop hay fever allergies when their immune systems identify one of these otherwise harmless allergens as harmful. The immune system then produces antibodies to these allergens. Because of this immune reaction, every time the person comes in contact with these allergens, their immune system releases chemicals like histamine, which produce the hay fever symptoms.2

Hay Fever (Rhinitis) Symptoms

Hay fever symptoms are not serious. Rather, repeated allergic reactions are annoying. When allergies are active, they can interfere with daily life. If your hay fever is triggered by pollen, then you’ll experience seasonal hay fever symptoms that are worse during the spring and summer.

Common hay fever symptoms include:

  • Runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Itchy mouth and throat
  • Postnasal drip
  • Blue skin discoloration under the eyes
  • Fatigue
