Allergic Rhinitis - Overview
Allergic Rhinitis commonly known as Hay Fever is caused by an allergic reaction to specific allergens like pollen. It occurs when the immune system overreacts to particles in the air that we breathe and we are allergic to them. The immune system attacks the particles in the body, causing symptoms like sneezing and a runny nose.
