What is hay fever?
Hay fever is an allergic response to pollens and affects 1 in 5 Australians 1 – one of the highest rates in the world. The medical term for hay fever is ‘allergic rhinitis’.
Symptoms of hay fever include itchy eyes, runny nose, nasal congestion and sneezing and tend to be worst in Spring and Summer when flowers and plants produce pollen.
How does the allergic response occur?
1 – the body encounters pollen in the air and believes it is a threat. Antibodies are released to fight it.
2 – the antibodies bind to the mast cells and produce chemicals, including histamine.
3 – Histamine causes an inflammatory response leading to hay fever symptoms.
How can hay fever be treated?
Conventional over the counter remedies to reduce hay fever symptoms include:
- Antihistamine tablets
- Anti-allergy eye drops.
- Nasal steroid sprays
Some patients with severe symptoms can have a series of desensitisation injections with their GP or Immunologist. These attempt to sensitise the patient to a specific set of allergens.
At Cityskin we now offer Hay fever Atomiser Treatment to help with symptoms.
How effective is Hay fever treatment at Cityskin?
Research shows that Hay fever Atomiser Treatment is as effective as the antihistamine tablet Cetirizine at treating hayfever.
