You don’t need to let hay fever ruin your summer plans.

Anyone who has experienced hay fever knows all too well how uncomfortable it can be in the late spring and summer months.

A runny nose, irritated eyes and a persistent cough are all sure signs that your seasonal allergies have taken hold, and it’s easy to see how these pesky symptoms can really mess with your daily routine.

But seasonal allergies shouldn’t hinder your summer plans, especially when there’s effective treatment options available to ease symptoms.

With that in mind, here is everything you need to know about the causes of hay fever and how it can be treated quickly and effectively.

What are the symptoms?

Hay fever makes its pesky presence known in a lot of different ways, including:

  • Sneezing and coughing
  • A runny or blocked nose
  • Red, watery eyes
  • Headaches and earaches
  • Itchiness around the throat, nose, mouth and ears
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Feeling tired or unable to concentrate

How can I treat the symptoms of hay fever?

When it comes to managing these symptoms, you don’t need to just grin and bear it. There are effective treatments out there that will go a long way towards easing your discomfort.

Anti-Hist Allergy can be used to relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis and urticaria. Anti-Hist Allergy gives relief from seasonal allergy symptoms for adults and children over the age of two.

*There’s an oral solution for children aged 2 plus, while tablets are available for children over the age of 12 and adults. Available in packs of seven or packs of 30, it’s the ideal hay fever solution to get you through the upcoming allergy season.

What causes hay fever symptoms?

The allergy symptoms are brought on when pollen, a fine powder found in plants, comes in contact with you eyes, nose, mouth and throat.

The pollen count is highest between late March and September, meaning hay fever symptoms are particularly likely during this period. Unfortunately, these symptoms can go on for weeks or even months, which is not ideal to say the least.

Anti-Hist Allergy relieves the symptoms of allergic rhinitis and urticaria. For more information on Anti-Hist Allergy, click here.

*Anti-Hist Allergy oral solution is available for children aged 2 and over. Tablets are available for adults and adolescents above 12 years old.

Always ask your pharmacist for advice. Always read the label.
