Can hay fever cause major problems in a person's life?
Hay fever is often treated as something relatively trivial, but in fact it can have a major impact on someone's life.
School or university exams are often scheduled during hay fever season. It has been shown that students with hay fever perform worse in exams during hay fever season. The symptoms can cause significant problems when driving and doing other demanding tasks as well. In addition, the runny eyes and runny nose can hinder social interaction, making jobs for some people difficult and making social situations awkward as well.
People with severe hay fever may be afraid to leave the house during daylight hours, especially on days when there is a high pollen count. This can have severe consequences on the quality of their life, and can prevent them from going to work, meeting friends, or enjoying their interests and hobbies.
In addition, people with hay fever are more likely to have other allergies, such as asthma or food allergies. A combination of night coughing and wheezing found in asthma and a blocked and runny nose can lead to sleepless nights or sleep that is not refreshing, and this can lead to tiredness.
One complication of hay fever is oral allergy syndrome. It is a type of food allergy, usually to fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables, and will be dealt with later in this article.
