These particles immediately trigger a huge production of antibody immunoglobulin E that locks onto the mast cells and cause you to sneeze, have itching and watery eyes, swelling and inflammation of your nasal passage because of an increase in mucus production.

The intensity of hay fever symptoms usually varies from person to person. Supposing the person is more sensitive and has a lower immunity it is possible that he may also experience hives or a rash during hay fever.

Health studies have shown that around the world one in three people will be having an active allergy at any given time of the day, and that at least three individuals out of four are bound to develop an allergic reaction during the course of their lives.

An individual with hay fever may be extra moody, short tempered, and agitated because of the constant sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose. They may also experience fatigue, insomnia, or irritability.

The symptoms of hay fever may also include having an itchy throat, and itchy nose, and blocked and runny nose. In more sever cases the individual may experience sweats, loss of smell and taste, headaches, and facial pain because of their blocked sinuses.

Some of the best home remedies for hay fever are mashing grapefruit and boiling it with lemon juice and honey for a three times a day sore throat cure, putting chamomile leaves in hot water and inhaling the steam twice a day for a blocked nose and head pain cure, drinking hot coffee to open your airways for easier breathing, or consuming twice a day a glass of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar for overall healing. Garlic is also a powerful healer and is rather effective in treating hay fever if you are bold enough to use it. Including fresh garlic in your diet to be rid of hay fever sooner is definitely one of the best cures. But again, it is only for the bold, because not everyone feels the same way about the smell and taste.

One other cure for a blocked and itchy nose might be to use a Nasal Spray. These handy little items are entirely natural and help to clear out and dispel any dust particles. The nasal spray is a safe product for older children and is also okay for moms to use while pregnant. Another thing you could try is Loratadine.
