Hay fever affects roughly 10 million people in the UK. It is triggered by the presence of pollen or dust mites in the air, and causes an inflammatory, allergic response. This is characterised by swelling around the eyes and airways, sneezing, and irritation in the mouth and throat.
Why some people are more prone to hay fever than others is not entirely understood. It is thought that genetics play a part, and that you are more likely to have hay fever if it runs in your family. Environmental conditioning through childhood is also thought to be a factor, with those who are exposed to certain irritants, such as cigarette smoke during their formative years, having a higher rate of incidence.
The condition occurs when the cells in the body react defensively to pollen or dust mites. This is because the immune system wrongly interprets these irritants as an infection, and releases a chemical called histamine to rid the body of them. As a result, swelling and inflammation result, even though there is no real infection present.
Rhinolast contains an ingredient called azelastine, which works by inhibiting the effects of histamine on those receptors which trigger an inflammatory response. In blocking this chemical reaction, the drug helps to limit and prevent symptoms.
