Are you suffering with Hay Fever?

Hay Fever is at the peak between March and September due to the warmer weather, humidity and the wind, which causes the pollen count to peak.

The usual symptoms can include itchy eyes and throat, sneezing, watering eyes, headaches, blocked sinuses and tiredness.

Here are 3 top tips to help manage your hay fever:

  1. Monitor pollen forecasts daily and stay indoors wherever possible when the count is high.
  2. On high pollen days, shower and wash your hair after arriving home and change your clothing.
  3. Avoid drying washing outside when pollen counts are high.

For more information regarding Hay Fever visit NHS Choices

If after following these preventive measures your symptoms are not relieved, then your pharmacist is able to help you. No appointment necessary.

If your symptoms are getting worse or are not improving after seeing your pharmacist then you should see your GP.
