Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)

Allergic Rhinitis happens when the body’s immune system over-responds to certain, non-infectious particles such as plant pollens, mold and mildews, allergen, animal hair, industrial chemicals (including tobacco smoke), foods, medications, and insect poison. During any sensitivity attack, antibodies, primarily immunoglobin E (IgE), connect to mast cells (cells that launch histamine) in the lungs, skin, and mucous membrane layers. When IgE gets in touch with the mast cells, a lot of chemicals are released. Among the chemicals, histamine, opens the blood vessels and causes skin redness and inflamed membrane layers. When this takes place in the nose, sneezing and blockage are the outcome.
