When you have hay fever, your immune system identifies a harmless airborne substance as harmful.
Your immune system then produces antibodies to this harmless substance.
The next time you come in contact with the substance, these antibodies signal your immune system to release chemicals such as histamine into your bloodstream, which cause a reaction that leads to the signs and symptoms of hay fever.
The following can increase your risk of developing hay fever:
Having other allergies or asthma
Having atopic dermatitis (eczema)
Having a blood relative (such as a parent or sibling) with allergies or asthma
Living or working in an environment that constantly exposes you to allergens — such as animal dander or dust mites
Having persons who smoked during your first year of life
