Did someone say, allergy season? Most of us normally look forward to the arrival of Spring with the warmer weather, green leaves and fresh blossoms unless you suffer from allergies! 🤧
One of the biggest spring allergy triggers is pollen. Trees, grasses and weeds release these tiny grains into the air to fertilise other plants.🌲
Unfortunately, for some, it triggers discomfort with a scratchy throat, itchy eyes and stuffy nose as they experience an allergic reaction.
People with pollen allergies – their immune system mistakenly identifies pollen as an intruder, therefore it mounts an inappropriate response to the harmless substance and has become hyper-reactive. This causes specialised immune cells, known as mast cells, to migrate to your nose and throat, where they release histamine. This chemical triggers an explosion of inflammation, which forces foreign particles out of your body. It is the swelling and irritation that inflammation causes which leads to the miserable symptoms of hay fever.😥
