Hay Fever Tips… Watch out for the pesky pollen!
13 million people in the UK have hay fever, affecting people of all ages. Having hay fever means you have a pollen allergy. There are three types of pollen that you could be allergic to; tree pollen, grass pollen and weed pollen. The hay fever season is from May through to September. Scroll down to see precautions you can take to reduce your exposure to pollen and ways to combat increased contact…
When you come in from outside make sure you change your clothes straight away and shake your coat! Pollen can become attached to your clothing while outside and may then be transferred into your home environment.
2. Daily Pollen Checks!
To be fully prepared make sure you are paying attention to the weather forecasts as they normally include a pollen count. This will allow you to see how high the pollen rate is and whether it is safe to venture out!
3. Create an igloo!
Sort of… just make sure you shut all of the windows in your house! If the pollen can’t get to you then your hay fever won’t flare up.
4. Magic sunglasses
When you are out and about make sure you have a pair of wrap around sunglasses handy. If one of your hay fever symptoms is itchy eyes, then this style of sunglasses is supposed to be the best for protection.
