Thank you for your query.

1. These are symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis.

2. Hay fever is a subset of Allergic Rhinitis pertaining to allergy triggered by plant pollens. Headaches may signify Sinusitis.

3. Request your doctor to start a two eek trial with an anti-histamine, anti-leukotriene, a steroid nasal spray and regular steam inhalation. Other supportive medication such as decongestants, mucolytics, cough syrups and medicated mouth washes may be added.

4. There is no cure for allergy, however it may be controlled by avoidance, medication and desensitisation.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
