    Nice try! Anaphylaxis is a severe, often life-threatening reaction to an allergic trigger. Allergic rhinitis is another name for hay fever.

    Correct! Allergic rhinitis means a stuffy nose caused by allergies. Hay fever is a misleading name. Nasal allergies aren't caused by hay and they don't cause a fever. They’re usually caused by pollen, mold, and other triggers.

    Nice try! Nonallergic rhinitis means a stuffy nose not caused by allergies. Hay fever is a misleading name. Nasal allergies aren't caused by hay and they don't cause a fever.
