Allergy Season (1)

2014/03/07

Now that hay fever season has arrived people often have complaints about health problems. (as a side note, ""hay fever" has no connection to high body temperature - fever- it is an allergy).

People with hay fever often have a runny nose: fluid is coming out of the nose like water nunning.  Sometimes nonstop it seems !

A stuffy nose, on the other hand, is a nose that is full of "stuff".  The fluid does not come out.  We also say our nose is "stuffed up" (blocked inside).  It's hard to say which of these conditions is worse !

When we have porblems with allery or have a cold, we often "blow our noses" which means to try to get the fluid out of our nose by pushing it out with air and into a handkerchief or tissue.

This action is often combined with a loud honking sound.  Why, I don't know...                        (G.K)
