Symptoms in Children

Symptoms of hayfever

In general, children’s hayfever symptoms are much the same as adult symptoms. The emotional symptoms can be the same too.

Additionally, hayfever can lead to dark circles under the eyes; and children often use the palm of their hand to push their nose up to relieve itching. Some doctors call this action the "allergic salute".

Hayfever should not be ignored in children as it may impact their ability to perform at school.
