Good to know

Pre-seasonal symptoms are common at this time. Every year, some people who are highly sensitized to the Betulaceae pollen (hazel, alder, birch) report that they already have symptoms of allergy before the significant appearance of this pollen in the air. This phenomenon might be due to the early dispersal of fine allergenic particles, to a patient's anticipation effect or to the proximity of plants whose flowering is locally more advanced.
