It is typical to get Hayfever during the spring or summer months. It is an allergic reaction that the body undergoes when the pollen from growing things enters the body. The bodies immune system reacts to the presence of pollen as if it were an infection; that is why a person experiences cold like symptoms during an allergy attack.

How can you grow out of hayfever?

I'm not sure I understand the question. If you are asking whether or not you can grow out of hayfever, the answer is yes, you can. In fact, this is common. Unfortunately, if you have hayfever now there is a good chance that you will continue to have allergy issues of some kind and may even start having the hayfever again. If you are asking how it is that people come to grow out of it - that is not well understood. We know that whether someone develops an allergic response to a protein (allergen) or the normal response to ignore it is complicated and depends on a number of factors. We do not know exactly why this changes over time. If you are asking what you can do to help yourself grow out of hayfever - I don't think anyone knows that. It might be an old wives tale but eating a spoon full of local honey during the hayfever season is supposed to be a cure, and it has always worked for me. Uou can also get injections that are supposed to inoculate against hayfever but they are painful and expensive.
