In brief: Maybe not directly -

Hay fever could plug up your nose to the point that you cannot smell well.
This can affect your ability to taste and enjoy food . . . Which in turn could affect your appetite. Just another way things are complex and connected in humans, no? I also agree with dr. Ali about the effects of medications people take for allergies.

In brief: Hay fever

Allergic rhinitis by itself does not affect appetite, but the medications used to treat it, or the associated depression, can both affect appetite.
