Dr. Elliot J. Kopp answered:

I have severe hay fever why?

Genetics & location

High_fever
We're all being inundated with pollen (that you cannot see), animal dander, dust mites, and mold spores. Your genetics makes it possible for you to get, or not get, symptoms when exposed.

What are the tests for hay fever?

By skin or blood

Blood
When you see an allergist, they will first take a detailed history of your symptoms(runny nose, headaches, itchy eyes etc) and then examine you. Usually a simple scratch test is done(answers within 15-20 minutes)..but some will first do a blood test(Aanswers within 2-4 days).

Dr. Paul M. Carter answered:

What sort of problem is hay fever?

Pollen allergy

Hay_fever
Originally hay fever referred to sneezing, runny nose, and nasal stuffiness due to allergy to fall pollens. The name was derived due to the fact that it occurs around the time that hay is cut and baled. Over time it has expanded to be a general term to describe allergic rhinitis regardless of the cause.

What are the symptoms of hay fever?

Itching & sneezing

Hay_fever
are symptoms specific for ALLERGIC rhinitis. When absent & you have other symptoms of rhinitis - congestion, runny nose, burning, post nasal drip, coughing - think a cold, sinus infection or non allergic rhinitis. Itchy eyes & top of your mouth are other specific symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It's called hay fever because it occurs in late summer when farmers mow the tall grass to make hay.
