Summer’s great and of course you just want to spend as much time outdoors as you can when you’re not in work. It’s a time for bbqs, sunbathing and music festivals, but if you suffer from hay fever that’s where the fun stops.
Hay Fever Hell
Your nose itches, your eyes run and you may be feeling run down with it. You take medication and if you’re lucky, it won’t make you drowsy. Then there’s the nasal spray and the eye drops, and all of this has to be administered well in advance of the summer, so your body has adequate protection before the pollen count increases.
You can’t sit out in the garden because the grass will be your enemy throughout the summer. If you’re the only one in your family suffering with hay fever, then you may feel isolated and always the party pooper.
Hay Fever On The Increase
However, you might be surprised to know that there are more people than ever suffering from hay fever and it could be as much as half the population by the mid noughties. We’re constantly having to battle new allergens and increased air pollution.
The weather created by climate changes has given us new plants for our nostrils to wrestle with and our own existing plants are able to flower for longer periods than ever before.
Hay fever is also more prevalent in middle aged people and pensioners, so there’s more likelihood of people suffering with hay fever rather than less in the future, so you’re not alone.
But you may be thinking that for now, for you, summers over, but it doesn’t have to be like that. Pollen may be your worst enemy right now, but there IS a way forward, and a great way for you to enjoy the summer months outdoors in the sunshine, without you having to hold a tissue to your nose the entire time.
