What is an allergy?
An allergy is the body's reaction to a particular food or substance. Allergies are very common and can range from mildly irritating symptoms to severe reactions. They are caused by the immune system responding to something as if it's harmful.
How is hay fever treated?
Because hay fever is an allergy response, an antihistamine can be used to lessen the symptoms. Antihistamines block the histamine response that has been triggered by an allergen. The histamines are responsible for the symptoms associated with hay fever allergies, so the antihistamines work to prevent them from causing the uncomfortable symptoms.
According to Allergy UK, allergic rhinitis, also known as hey fever, affects 26% of adults and 10-15% of children in the UK.
According to Allergy UK, up to 57% of adult patients and up to 88% of children who have hay fever also have sleep problems that lead to daytime fatigue.

What are the different types of allergy medication?
Allergies cause a range of reactions therefore a variety of products are available to manage the symptoms. Eye drops, nasal sprays, topical creams and tablets are recommended to treat different symptoms either to prevent or manage the allergic reaction. For example, creams can be applied to skin rashes as it occurs whilst hayfever medication can be taken throughout certain seasons to minimise the severity of symptoms.
Why do allergies present themselves in different ways?
Allergies can become apparent on the skin or cause an internal reaction. It is due to different stimuli and how you came into contact with it. Ingested food is more likely to cause internal symptoms whereas allergic triggers in the environment are more prone to present themselves on the skin. For example, lactose intolerance causes uncomfortable bodily reactions (vomiting and diarrhoea) whilst airborne allergies such as dust, pollen and pollution produce similar allergic reactions (sneezing, swelling and itchiness).

Allergic reactions can be managed or minimised by using techniques and treatments. Medication in the form of tablets and steroid creams can be used to treat mild allergic reactions. Medical professionals also advise having as little contact with allergic triggers as possible to avoid outbreaks o symptoms. Finally, your doctor may suggest desensitisation (immunotherapy) in cases of severe allergic reactions, whereby your body is carefully exposed to allergic stimuli over time.
