Stress has been linked to many medical problems in the past, and has now been linked to aggravating allergies.

Researchers conducted their study on 28 volunteers who had a history of allergies such as hay fever, and seasonal allergies.

They were watched for two days, with them being split into groups based on stress.

They found that those who were under high levels of stress had stronger allergic reactions, compared to those who were not stressed.

The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association in Boston, MA.
