Q.

I am having symptoms of an allergy but I am not sure what I am allergic to

I am 16 and have hay fever, which is especially bad in the summer. My reactions to this are itchy eyes (which I get a lot), sneezing and sometimes a blocked nose. I am getting these symptoms now and am taking antihistamines to try and prevent this, but it isn't working. Could u please let me know what you think I have.

I sounds like grass pollen allergies are causing your hay fever, if medication is not helping, then you may need to have Desensitisation Immunotherapy. Contact the Allergy Foundation of SA for details at www.allergyfoundation.co.za
