About Allergies

Many of us will experience an allergic reaction to something at some stage in our lives. The watery, red and itchy eyes, sneezing, runny and itchy nose and all the other symptoms can really affect our day-to-day activities.2 If you or someone you love suffers from hay fever, you know how hay fever can affect your quality of life, whether it's sleep disturbance, daytime fatigue, or difficulty concentrating.3,4

But what is hayfever and what causes it to happen?

Hayfever, also referred to as seasonal or year-round allergic rhinitis, affects around 400 million people worldwide.5 It is also the most common allergic condition in New Zealand.2 Hayfever only happens during certain months of the year (seasonal allergies) and other allergies may occur throughout the year (year-round allergies).2 An allergy occurs when your immune system thinks something like pollen, dust or food is a threat.6 Pollen that floats in the air can enter through your nose, mouth, and or eyes and within minutes cause a range of allergy symptoms.7

What Can Cause Allergies?

There are many causes of allergies. It is important to figure out what your allergy triggers are. You might be able to avoid some, but this isn’t always possible, especially if they are dust, animal dander or mould.2

Some of the more common causes of allergies are listed below to help you identify the possible causes of your allergy symptoms.

Common Causes Of Allergies7





Common Allergy Symptoms

When your body's immune system sees something which is otherwise harmless as a threat, it can overreact leading to an allergic reaction.7 The symptoms that occur are as a direct result of this.7 There are many ways in which allergens can get into your body to cause such a reaction.7 Reactions usually happen quickly (within minutes) but can be delayed in some people; and continue for as long as the person is still in contact with the allergen.7 This means some people can have short term allergic reactions, and others suffer from allergy symptoms all year round.7

When you suffer from allergies, you may have any or all of the following typical allergy symptoms.6
