Top tips for reducing hay fever symptoms

Image result for hay fever

Hay fever

Hay fever is a common allergic condition that affects one in five people at some point in their life. The warmer weather can signal the start of allergic symptoms for people with hay fever. Many different types of pollens come from grasses, trees and weeds and are being released at different times of the year. Symptoms of hay fever can include itchy, red or watery eyes, a runny nose and sneezing.

Top tips for reducing symptoms
  • Start treatment early (using treatments up to two weeks before peak pollen times can help)
  • Put Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen
  • Wear wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting into your eyes
  • Monitor pollen forecasts daily and stay indoors wherever possible when the count is high (generally on warmer, dry days). Rain washes pollen from the air so counts should be lower on cooler, wet days
  • On high pollen days, shower and wash your hair after arriving home and change your clothing

Speak to our pharmacists instore if you have hay fever.

They can give advice and suggest the best treatments, like antihistamine drops, tablets or nasal sprays to help with:

  • itchy and watery eyes and sneezing
  • a blocked nose
