Allergic rhinitis is a group of symptoms affecting the nose. These symptoms occur when you breathe in something you are allergic to, such as dust, dander, insect venom, or pollen.
This article focuses on allergic rhinitis due to outdoor triggers, such as plant pollen. This type of allergic rhinitis is commonly called hay fever.
An allergen is something that triggers an allergy. When a person with allergic rhinitis breathes in an allergen such as pollen or dust, the body releases chemicals, including histamine. This causes allergy symptoms.
The amount of pollen in the air can affect whether hay fever symptoms develop. Hot, dry, windy days are more likely to have increased amounts of pollen in the air. On cool, damp, rainy days most pollen is washed to the ground. Hay fever involves an allergic reaction to pollen. A similar reaction occurs with allergy to mold, animal dander, dust, and other allergens that you breathe in. The pollens that cause hay fever vary from person to person and from area to area. Tiny, hard-to-see pollens often cause hay fever. Examples of plants that cause hay fever include: trees, weed, grasses.
Some disorders may be linked to allergies. These include eczema and asthma.
Allergies are common. Your genes and environment may make you more likely to get allergies. Allergies often run in families. If both your parents have allergies, you are likely to have allergies too. The chance is greater if your mother has allergies.
Symptoms that occur shortly after you come into contact with the substance you are allergic to may include:
- Itchy nose, mouth, eyes, throat, skin, or any area, tearing eyes
- Problems with smell, runny nose, sneezing
Symptoms that may develop later include: Stuffy nose, coughing, sore throat, clogged ears and decreased sense of smell, puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
How Sinol Works – Instant Allergy Relief
Sinol nasal spray for allergies uses Capsaicin, an ingredient that comes from the pepper plant and is found in most spicy foods. The capsaicin desensitizes the mucous membranes making them less irritated by airborne allergens. Sinol nasal allergy spray will break up nasal congestion fast, cleanse and moisturize the nose, keep your nasal passages moist, clean and bacteria free while it prevents allergy triggers. Sinol allergy nasal sprays do not dry out the nose like antihistamines and decongestants found in other allergy nasal sprays.
