With summer on it’s way, and more time in your garden or outside for daily exercise, enjoyment may be curtailed by the misery of hayfever. Up to 1 in 4 people in the UK are affected by seasonal allergic rhinitis – also known as hay fever. This year is expected to be the worst hayfever season for a long time.
Common symptoms include an itchy or runny nose, sneezing, and nasal congestion. Trees produce pollen in late spring, and some grasses continue to produce pollen until September; meaning the season can last for many months.
Make sure that you start your medication as soon as possible. If it isn’t working, or you would like further advice, please contact Mr Frosh, who specialises in hayfever treatment, and can offer both telephone and video consultations at this moment in time.
