There is a strong link between Hay fever and Asthma. Hay fever now affects 3 million Australians. This means that 1 in 5 of us have to battle through spring and summer with runny noses, watery eyes, and the other symptoms of hay fever. On top of that, Asthma Australia reports 1 in 10 Australians now suffer from asthma, and around a third of these people report having asthma symptoms that interfere with their daily lives.In Australia, hay fever and asthma are both on the rise. This isn’t really surprising as the same things can trigger both conditions; typically dust mite, pet allergens, pollen and moulds. What also should come as no surprise is the fact that asthma and hay fever are often found in the same patients. In fact, most patients with asthma also have hay fever, and hay fever is one of the biggest risk factors for developing asthma.
