This is what spring and summer means for about 25% of the UK population.
Most of us welcome the spring and summer months when we can really get to enjoy our gardens and some warm sunshine. If you don't suffer from hay fever, you may not realise how debilitating it can be.
A high pollen count can spell misery for some people. Working or sitting in your garden or walking in a park or the countryside is probably the last thing you want to do. Life can become miserable because you suffer from hay fever with a streaming nose, sore eyes and headache.
It’s no real comfort to you to know you’re not alone – approximately a quarter of adults in the UK suffer from hay fever.
Although there is no cure for hay fever, there are ways to reduce your symptoms. Reducing your exposure to pollen will help, but avoiding it completely is impossible.
These self-help measures may relieve your symptoms but if they don’t, there is more your local herbalist can do to help.
