One of the most common forms of allergic conditions is hay fever, which is characterized by sneezing with runny and itchy nose and eyes. Hay fever often has seasonal variation, and is caused by specific allergens such as pollen or mold. Some individuals with this condition have year-round symptoms because they are allergic to an indoor allergen such as pet dander or dust mite. Chronic exposure to an allergen often leads to a different set of symptoms compared to those described above. These symptoms include stuffy nose with mouth breathing and snoring at night-time, mucous production, scratchy or itchy throat, and red, irritated eyes. Chronic hay fever sufferers may also feel fatigued and drowsy during day-time.
