The Basics

Pollen Effect on Body

Your body overreacts to

otherwise harmless substances

around you called allergens

like pollen, dust, food items or

even medication.

Cough during allergy

Once in contact, your body

thinks these allergens are

invaders and releases the

chemical, histamine to fight

them.11

Sneezing Allergy Effect

This, in turn, can cause reactions

like skin rashes, headaches,

sneezing, nausea and even

anaphylaxis (which can be fatal

without medical attention).11, 12
