Doctor :   Allergic reactions in the nose lead to release of certain chemicals. One of these chemicals, histamine, causes dilation of blood vessels, skin redness, and swollen membranes. This leads to symptoms of so-called allergic rhinitis.

Doctor :   Allergens in the house, such as house dust mites and pet dander cause allergic rhinitis. Moulds growing on wallpaper, upholstery, carpeting, and house-plants are also allergens. One plant can release one million pollen grains a day. Other grasses and trees that release very small pollen grains also cause allergies. Grass allergies are experienced more in the late afternoon; and mould spores may peak on dry windy afternoons or on damp or rainy days in the early morning.
