Pollen Allergies

Pollen allergies, commonly known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis, occur when the immune system overreacts to pollen from trees, grasses, weeds, or flowers. When pollen is inhaled, the immune system mistakenly identifies it as a threat, triggering an allergic reaction. Symptoms of pollen allergies can range from mild to severe and may include:

  1. Sneezing

  2. Runny or stuffy nose

  3. Itchy or watery eyes

  4. Scratchy throat

  5. Coughing

  6. Fatigue


For some individuals, pollen allergies can significantly impact daily life, causing discomfort and affecting productivity, sleep, and overall well-being.
