    I am of the belief that generally speaking, black people do not get the hay fever, and that this is pretty much an exclusively white man's ailment.

    I have only ever met one exception to this rule, and he was often ridiculed by his afro caribbean brethren.

    Can you please confirm if black people can get hay fever?

    Welcome Marmalord, interesting question...


    Do black people get hayfever?

    Hayfever is largely an allergy from ragweed, the body's immune system over reacts. Unless evidence is provided that Black People are excluded from catching allergies, I'll have to say yes to the question.


    I think someone is pulling your leg, lol, with Bushes Fever... Its too easy to Google things now for confirmation... :google:


    Peace In,

    :welcome1: Marmalord. And uh, yea, black people in the U.S. get hay fever. I say "the U.S." because you mentioned the Carribean where prolly there's not as much pollution to enflame the sinuses.

    I can attest to the fact that our race gets hsyfever. I think most members of my family have it. If we live and breathe the air as other races, we eventually are prone and acceptable to their ailments. Do you have hayfever? Or just inquiring. If you do, I find the Nettie pot regiment to be very helpful.

    I get Hay fever, but it depends on the environment I am in. When I am in the sub tropics or tropics I am non symptomatic. When I am in the plains I am very symptomatic during the summer and the fall, with summer being the worst.
