What is allergic rhinitis?

An allergen is a harmless substance that triggers an allergic reaction. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is an allergic response to specific allergens. Pollen is the most common allergen in seasonal allergic rhinitis. These allergy symptoms are associated with seasonal changes.

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, nearly 8 percent of Americans suffer from allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis may affect between 10-30 percent of the global population.

Allergy rhinitis

Common signs of allergic rhinitis are:

  • sneezing
  • a runny nose
  • a stuffy nose
  • an itchy nose
  • coughing
  • a sore or scratchy throat
  • itchy eyes
  • watery eyes
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • frequent headaches
  • eczema-type symptoms, such as having extremely dry, itchy skin that can blister and weep
  • hives
  • Excessive fatigue

Usually, you will feel at least one of these symptoms after being exposed to an allergen. Recurrent headaches or fatigue may be a sign of long-term allergen exposure. Hay fever is not a sign of it.

Some people only experience mild symptoms. This is most likely when you are exposed to allergens in high quantities. Some people have symptoms throughout the year. If your symptoms persist for longer than two weeks or don’t improve, talk to your doctor.
