I have began suffering hayfever in my 20's, each year it seems to get a little worse, itchy palate and ears, sore red eyes, sinus discomfort (sore lining of nose, headaches etc.) However, I also notice that with exposure to my typial hayfever triggers, I also seem to suffer some bronchial symptoms - it feels as though my throat is very irritated, like something is stuck in it and I have to keep clearing it - I do not know if this is swelling - there is no itching, but it does tend to get very sore (I expect due to the constant clearing) and my voice goes very deep and coarse as though there is bronchial narrowing - On occasions I have used an asthma inhaler when exposed to lengthy periods of trigger (driving through kms of paddocks etc) with some effect. Damp grass also seems to trigger this symptom.
Is this a normal symptom of hayfeve or is there something else going on here?
What is the best way to fix this?
(I also suffer from contact dermatitis - metals and severe allergy to hair dye with brown/black colourant - causing a severe skin blistering which spreads - I doubt any of this is related, but thought best to mention just in case)
