Allergic rhinitis is a medical diagnosis connected with a group of symptoms impacting the nose. This type of allergic rhinitis is generally called hay fever or seasonal allergic reaction. When an individual with allergic rhinitis takes a breath in an allergen such as plant pollen, mold, animal dander, or dust, the body launches chemicals that cause allergic reaction symptoms. Types of plants that cause hay fever vary from one person to another and from area to area. The quantity of plant pollen in the air can impact whether hay fever symptoms develop or not. If both of your parents have hay fever or other allergies, you are likely to have hay fever and allergic reactions, too. Some people only get allergic rhinitis for a couple of months at a time since they're delicate to seasonal irritants, such as tree or grass plant pollen. Other individuals get allergic rhinitis throughout the year. Many people with allergic rhinitis have mild symptoms that can be conveniently and effectively dealt with. The symptoms of allergic rhinitis sometimes boost with time, however this can take several years and it's not likely that the condition will disappear completely. A diagnosis of allergic rhinitis will usually be based on your symptoms and any feasible triggers you may have noticed.
