Re: pollen allergy

Pollen is one of the most common causes of allergies in the United States. Pollen is a very fine powder produced by trees, flowers, grasses, and weeds to fertilize other plants of the same species. Many people have an adverse immune response when they breathe in pollen.

The immune system normally defends the body against harmful invaders, such as viruses and bacteria, to ward off illnesses. In people with pollen allergies, the immune system mistakenly identifies the harmless pollen as a dangerous intruder and begins to produce chemicals to fight against the pollen.The allergy is unlikely to go away once it has developed. However, symptoms can be treated with medications and allergy shots. Making certain lifestyle changes can also help relieve the symptoms associated with pollen allergies.

A pollen allergy may also be referred to as hay fever or allergic rhinitis.

Hope this helps.

Re: pollen allergy

What exactly is Pollen allergy?
Greenery only has one side effect; it is a habitat of pollens. Pollen grains when released by the trees and grasses don’t reach to the other plants and hence stays in the air becomes a cause of spreading allergy. When suspended pollen grains in the air are inhaled by human beings it triggers the allergy.

Why hospitals receive more cases of patients with pollen allergy?
All thanks to the greenery there has a high count of pollens present in the air. A major reason for it according to the research is the presences of the excess amount of Paper mulberry trees.
Moreover Due to climate change now the scarcity in the rain has become a major cause of skyrocketing cases of pollen allergy.
Is it avoidable?
It is almost unavoidable because pollens suspend in the air and when it is inhaled by the person he/she is most likely to suffer from it.
When I am most likely to suffer from Pollen Allergy?
You are most likely to get it in the spring season when pollen concentration in the air is relatively high, especially during March-April. It gets lower in Monsoon season.
How can I know I am suffering from Pollen allergy?
You have to be very conscious in identifying the following symptoms:
 Persistent sneezing
 Clogged or a Runny nose
 Watery eyes
 Red rimmed eyes
 Congestion/Difficulty in Breathing
 In extreme cases asthma
What can I do to prevent myself from Pollen allergy?
Here are some triggers that can worsen your condition if you have pollen allergy:
 Insect repellant sprays
