Share Article

Perhaps you get a stuffy nose every spring, summer and fall. Maybe you sniffle and sneeze all year long. If so, you may have hay fever (allergic rhinitis), which is an allergic response to certain substances in your environment. Hay fever is the most common allergic condition in the United States, affecting about 20% of the population.

neaclear is sponsoring a seminar to educate people on Hay Fever. The causes and some simple treatments for hay fever will be discussed in a friendly setting to promote a simple message. This will be held on July 14th, 2006 and will be just in time to help with the upcoming fall hay fever season.

Perhaps you get a stuffy nose every spring, summer and fall. Maybe you sniffle and sneeze all year long. If so, you may have hay fever (allergic rhinitis), which is an allergic response to certain substances in your environment. Hay fever is the most common allergic condition in the United States, affecting about 20% of the population.

If you have seasonal hay fever, you may be allergic to pollens released by trees, grasses or weeds. If you have year-round hay fever, you may be sensitive to indoor allergens such as dust mites, cockroaches, mold or pet dander.

Signs and symptoms of hay fever may include:

  •     Runny nose
  •     Watery eyes
  •     Congestion
  •     Frequent sneezing
  •     Itchy eyes, nose, roof of mouth or throat
  •     Allergic shiners
  •     Postnasal drip
  •     Cough
  •     Sleeplessness
  •     Fatigue
  •     Irritability
  •     Facial pressure and pain

It may be difficult to distinguish hay fever from a cold. Here's how to tell the difference:

    Hay fever     Colds

Signs and symptoms     Runny nose with thin, watery discharge; no fever    Runny nose with watery to thick yellow discharge; low-grade fever

Onset     Immediately after exposure to allergens    One to three days after exposure to cold virus

Duration     As long as you're exposed to allergens    Five to seven days

You may be able to treat mild hay fever with over-the-counter medications. However, if your symptoms are more severe or is a year-round nuisance, see a doctor for evaluation. Without proper medical management, hay fever can impair your quality of life, cause sleeplessness, fatigue and irritability that affect your performance at work or school, and increase your risk of developing more serious allergic conditions such as asthma.

At the neaclear seminar, the focus will be on the following simple advice:

It is not possible to completely avoid allergens, but you can reduce your symptoms by minimizing your exposure to them. To reduce exposure to pollen or molds:

  •     Close doors and windows during pollen season.
  •     Use air conditioning in your house and car.
  •     Stay indoors on sunny, windy days.
  •     Use a dehumidifier to reduce indoor humidity to less than 50 percent.
  •     Use a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter in your bedroom.
  •     Avoid mowing the lawn or raking leaves, which stirs up pollen and molds.

To reduce exposure to dust mites:

  •     Encase mattresses, box springs and pillows in allergy-proof covers.
  •     Wash sheets and blankets in water heated to at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
  •     Use a dehumidifier to reduce indoor humidity to less than 50 percent.
  •     Vacuum carpets weekly with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a small particle or HEPA filter.
  •     Consider removing bedroom carpeting if you're highly sensitive to dust mites.

To reduce exposure to cockroaches:

  •     Block cracks and crevices where roaches can enter.
  •     Fix leaky faucets and pipes.
  •     Wash dishes and empty garbage daily.
  •     Sweep food crumbs from counters and floors.
  •     Store food β€” including pet food β€” in sealed containers.
  •     Consider professional pest extermination.

To reduce exposure to pet dander:

  •     Remove pets from the house if possible.
  •     Bathe pets weekly if they'll let you.
  •     Keep your pet out of the bedroom.
