In brief: Unknown
Probiotics have been found to decrease the frequency and severity of viral uri's (common cold) in prospective, randomized clinical trials, and probiotics have also been found to cause beneficial changes in the immune system. However, probiotics have not been found to reduce hay fever / allergies.
On the other hand, that question may not have been studied yet.
