Your reaction to common triggers

Hay fever is a common allergic reaction to pollen, which means it is often more noticeable while spending time outdoors, near trees, grass and plants.

Allergies can also occur in the home as a result of airborne pollen, or particles stuck onto bedding, clothing and household surfaces.

According to the NHS, hay fever is usually worse on warm, humid and windy days during spring and summer, when the pollen count is at its highest.

If your symptoms are intermittent throughout the peak season and feel worse while near known triggers, it is likely that you are dealing with hay fever and not a common cold.
