If you get hay fever, sinusitis or seasonal allergies natural medicines can help.
For some people, spring is a time of misery as the abundance of flowering plants set off their hay fever, sinusitis and allergies. Pollen is a key trigger for the allergic response that causes hay fever; other triggers (known as allergens) include grasses, dust and animal dander. These allergens irritate the nasal passages causing inflammation, increased mucus production and symptoms such as itchiness, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and congestion.
As well as hay fever, some people also get sinusitis during the spring months. Sinusitis is a painful condition involving inflammation of the paranasal sinuses (hollow spaces around the cheeks and eyes). It may be associated with infection and/or allergy and is commonly accompanied by headaches, pain and mucus congestion. Unresolved sinusitis can lead to chronic infections lasting weeks or months. Certain risk factors increase susceptibility to sinusitis – these include frequent colds, cigarette smoke, dental disease and nasal polyps.
