Acacias are a characteristic feature of dry regions in India and the African savannah, where they are called umbrella trees because of their shape. Hayfever and asthma occur through exposure to the pollen. Rhinitis and asthma have been described in wood workers exposed to Acacia wood. Allergic rhinitis is caused by inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the nose and sinuses, and the subsequent release of histamine. The release of histamine into the nasal cavity, throat, bronchioles, larynx and trachea result in cold-like signs and symptoms. The increased permeability of capillaries in the nasal cavity result in nasal congestion and a runny nose, a post-nasal drip, sneezing, a decreased sense of taste and smell as well as sinus pressure and facial pain. Coughing, watery and itchy eyes as well as swelling of the skin underneath the eyes are also observed.
