Hayfever

Also known as Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis, Hayfever, is a common condition which effects many people in the Spring and Summer months.

Many people manage their symptoms entirely appropriately using over the counter products like antihistamines, nasal sprays and eye drops. If the pharmacy products don’t seem to be helping, or your symptoms include wheeze or cough, please make an appointment. If you receive Repeat Prescriptions for your Hayfever order them before your symptoms usually begin so as not to be caught out!
