Do hay allergies = straw allergies too?
I'm doing an art installation in May. the installation space is to represent a barn, and it was my hope to have bales of straw for seating. I chose straw versus hay because I figured allergies to straw are less common than hay. My teacher, who needs to be present at my big review said she'll have to stand in the doorway area because she is really allergic to hay...I told her I'm not using hay, I'm using straw, but she said it doesn't matter...I think she thinks hay and straw are the same thing; My question is, if you have allergies to hay, does that mean you will likely be allergic to straw too? Are straw allergies common?

She will definately react to the field dirt and silt that is contained in raw straw from the field
People with allergies / asthma generally cannot go into a barn that is bedded with straw at all, and it has nothing to do with whether or not hay is in there as well ...
