Allergic rhinitis, commonly called hay fever, is an allergy
characterized by sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, a runny nose
and a burning sensation of the palate and throat.
Hay fever is usually caused by
allergies to airborne substances such as dust, moulds, pollens, animal fur and feathers.|
It is often aggravated by a food allergy, the most common being an allergy to milk.
