Rice Pollen Allergies (イネの花粉症)


I’m allergic to pollen from the rice family, which includes other grains and grasses. In Japan, cedar pollen allergy is widespread in February and March. As these allergies are dying down in May and June, rice family pollen allergies are reaching their peak. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose and itchy throat. I was in a wretched condition yesterday when I visited NACOS in Shonan.

私はイネ科花粉症です。日本では2~3月にかけて、スギ科花粉症が大流行しますが、イネ科花粉症はスギ花粉も落ち着いた5~6月にピークを迎えます。症状は、くしゃみ・鼻水・鼻づまり・目や喉のかゆみなどです。先日、NACOS湘南にお伺いしたときもひどい症状でした。

However, I then took some allegry medicine that was extremely effective. I had been sneezing over and over, but less than 30 minutes after taking this medicine I was back to normal.

しかし、この症状にはアレルギーの薬が絶大な効果を発揮します。それまで、くしゃみが何十回と出る状態でしたが、薬を飲むと、30分もしないうちに症状が緩和してきます。

I’m told psychology could have something to do with it, but I’m also sure the medicine I took was extremely effective.

気持ちの問題も影響していそうですが、薬の効果は絶大だと感じました。
