Itchy, runny nose? Sneezing? Bunged up? Headache? They’re all symptoms of a cold, but they could also be the tell-tale signs of hay fever – even if you’ve never suffered with it before.
Hay fever is on the increase – an estimated 31 per cent of adults in the UK reported suffering from it in 2018. That’s up from 26 per cent in 2017. Daily antihistamine tablets are the go-to remedy for many people and along with allergy eye drops and nasal sprays they make up an effective arsenal against hay fever symptoms. However, if you can’t tolerate antihistamines, you need a little extra help or you prefer a more natural approach, there are other ways to get through hay fever season.
