Seasonal airborne irritants such as grass, tree, and flower pollen may cause an allergic reaction that is called hay fever. Mucous membranes lining the nose and eyes are mainly affected, but the ears, throat, and lungs may also become irritated. Symptoms include repeated sneezing, a runny nose, watering eyes, and itching of the eyes, nose, palate, and throat. Allergic rhinitis, or perennial rhinitis, is the name given to similar symptoms that occur year-round and are caused by other irritants, including dust mites and animal dander.
