How Can I Prevent Hay Fever?

Hay fever is a common allergy which affects approx 2 in 10 people in the UK and is caused by an allergy to pollen. Hay fever is traditionally associated with grass or hay pollens, the most common is grass pollen. Grass pollen normally affects people each year from late spring to early summer.

However, pollen is also produced by other plants, trees and flowers, tree pollen usually affects sufferers in early spring to late spring whilst nettles and docks (weed pollen) pollinate from early spring through until early autumn.

As the symptoms of hay fever occur at the same time or in the same season each year, it is also known as season allergic rhinitis.

Symptoms Of Hay Fever:

  • Itchy nose
  • Watery eyes

These symptoms will vary from person to person, and in some instances, only nasal symptoms can occur whilst other suffers may only be affected by itchy and watery eyes.
