Q & A

Hay fever and allergies are allergic disorders. These conditions are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to allergens in the environment. You suffer from allergies because your immune system comes in contact with inhaled allergens. Your body over reacts and produces substance like histamine. This causes allergic symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, itching, watery eye, nasal congestion, etc. Hay fever is often a genetic condition. It is also known as rhinitis.


Avamys nasal spray is a corticosteroid medicine. It is also known as Flixonase, Nasofan, Pirinase hayfever, Fluticasone nasal spray, and Dymista. Hay fever (rhinitis) and other allergic symptoms are taken care of by Avamys. When cells in the lining of your nose and eyes come in contact with allergic substances such as pollens, pet fur, dust, or insect bites, they release histamine. This leads to inflammation which causes allergic symptoms. Avamys reduces the histamine and subsides the symptoms. It is a non-drowsy medicine and is available as nasal spray and nose drops.

Is there a cure for hay fever?

To put it bluntly, no there isn’t. It is an immunological disease which currently has no cure. It can, however, be controlled effectively through techniques or medications which are widely available.


What is an allergy?

‘Allergy’ is used to describe an extreme reaction of hypersensitivity. If you had a certain food or substance that triggered your hay fever, it would do so extremely quickly after coming into contact with it. As an example, if you were to a wheat product (a common trigger for certain people) which made you develop sinus issues hours after eating, you would not be classed as allergic to this food; you’d be more intolerant or hypersensitive to it.


How can I differentiate between allergies and a common cold?

Allergies will tend to last far longer than a cold, sometimes up to several weeks. If you pick up on the fact that you become affected by the same symptoms between a specific time period, year after year, then this may be a clear sign of an allergy. Symptoms such as a persistently sneezing, having an itchy nose, and having watery eyes are more associated to allergies than they are colds. 


What is it that causes my allergies to flare up during spring?

This will most likely be due to pollen. Every species of plant will release pollen at a certain point in the year. For instance, trees usually come first and release pollen in the early spring, followed by grasses in late spring/early summer, and weeds generally release pollen during the autumn. However, the timing depends on your location and the climate.
