photo (13)

Hay fever is an allergy to pollen and can make the summer months miserable.

Pollen is a fine powder released by plants which contain proteins that cause the nose, eyes and throat to become swollen, irritated and inflamed. Some people have allergies to tree pollen in the spring, grass pollen at the end of spring beginning of summer, weed pollen in the late autumn and some people unfortunately suffer from all of them. Here are 10 helpful tips to help in the battle of hay fever:

  1. Damp dust regularly
  2. Vacuum regularly
  3. Don’t hang your washing outside to dry as some pollen will collect on the material
  4. Keep your windows and doors shut
  5. Don’t keep fresh flowers in the house
  6. Take a shower and change your clothes when you have been outside
  7. Put some Vaseline under your nose to trap the pollen
  8. Wear wraparound sunglasses
  9. Stay inside when the pollen count is high (50)
  10. Keep car windows closed
