Time to stop smoking?
Also known as Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis, Hayfever, is a common condition which effects many people in the Spring and Summer months. Sufferers respond to different pollens which determines exactly when symptoms may be at their worst. Many people manage their symptoms entirely appropriately using over the counter products like antihistamines, nasal sprays and eye drops. However, it is important to ensure that you’re using your nasal spray correctly. If the pharmacy products don’t seem to be helping, or your symptoms include wheeze or cough, it’s important to make an appointment with one of the clinicians to discuss things further. If you already receive Repeat Prescriptions for your Hayfever it’s important to order them before your symptoms usually begin so as not to be caught out!
