Plants & Hayfever

For some people, pollens, grasses, flowers and trees can all be ‘allergens’, causing allergic rhinitis or hay fever all year around or during some parts of the year. Allergic rhinitis can be classified according to the frequency of symptoms, for example intermittent allergic rhinitis occurring less than 4 days/week or less than 4 weeks or persistent allergic rhinitis occurring more than 4 days per week or for more than 4 weeks.

In Australia pollination times vary with plant variety and location. For example trees pollinate in late winter and early spring. Grasses flower in late spring through to summer and weeds pollinate from August to May.
