The technical name for hayfever is seasonal allergic rhinitis. It is a reaction to pollen and fungal spores. The symptoms change as different plants and trees come into flower. For example, the hayfever season generally begins with the release of pollen by trees in February and continues until the end of May. Most people with hayfever are allergic to grass pollens. These pollens are in the air between May and September and are at their peak in June and July. Later in the year, from summer into autumn, levels of weed pollen and fungal spores rise and cause problems.
