hay fever and other forms of allergic reaction makes the body release the chemical histamine when the immune system is being exposed to allergens. It is also possible that the body reacts the same way when it is re-exposed to allergens that it has become previously sensitised to.
What causes Hayfever? Some of the most common allergens are tree, plant or grass pollens to mould spores or dust mite debris. Histamin is the substance responsible to make you sneeze, have runny nose, watery eyes, and makes your face itch.
