All You Need to Know About the Symptoms of Nasal Allergies

We all face problems like sneezing, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, etc. Sometimes, it is a puzzle to us for the root cause of our sicknessTunderstand this, we need to know what an allergy is and how it differs from a common cold. 

What Brings Nasal Allergies? 

Allergy causes allergic diseases like hay fever, asthma, and severe conditions, resulting in anaphylaxis. It happens due to the immune system's occasional hypersensitivity to substances like dust particles and pollens, which are usually harmless. Contrary to this, in the common cold, a virus enters our body. Our body's defense army, i.e., immune system, activates and, consequently, response symptoms like a cough and flu symptoms appear. 

Nasal infection from a virus lasts for two weeks only, while nasal allergies may last for months until you get rid of your allergy triggers. This is a critical point that helps you determine the disease you are suffering from to apply the appropriate remedy. 


It is the spring that brings nasal allergy to most of us, and the most common allergen in this season is pollen. Some other allergens are dust, animal dander, etc.

  • Drink plenty of fluids 
  • Snack on yogurt 
  • Listen to some music and relax; because stress aggravates the illness
