Get relief from hayfever now!

Most hayfever sufferers complain of sneezing, itching and burning eyes and throat, and either blocked or running nose. When you have an allergy the body releases a substance called histamine, which is why the most common medicines used to treat allergies are called antihistamines. Today's modern medicines, when used properly, are very effective in alleviating hayfever symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hayfever or a cold?

How do I get rid of hayfever symptoms?

From antihistamines to nasal sprays, drops, salves and decongestants - there are a number of hayfever treatments available to help you seek relief from the symptoms of hayfever. 

Hot beverages and a spoonful of honey are possible natural remedies for hayfever. Chamomile tea, an antioxidant with an antihistamine effect, in particular is known to help relieve inflammation in your airways. 

Omega fatty acid rich food such as fish can be a good booster for your immune system and other remedies can include having a shower in the evening to clear your hair and skin of pollens that would otherwise stay on your pillow making your hayfever symptoms worse over night.

Do I have hayfever or a cold?

Both hayfever and the common cold causes sneezing, runny or stuffy nose and coughing. One of the key differences is the colour of the nasal discharge (your snot): it’s more likely to be yellowish/green in colour in colds; while in hayfever, it’s clear.

Facial itchiness – especially around the eyes or throat – is a symptom typically only seen with hayfever. If someone is allergic to a seasonal environmental trigger such as pollen, their symptoms may be restricted to particular seasons of the year. But if you’re allergic to dust or smoke, symptoms may last all year long.

Nasal Sprays

Nasal sprays sprayed directly in your nose can relieve the itching, sneezing and blocked or runny nose, as well as sinus pain and congestion.

Hayfever Tablets

Hayfever tablets contain antihistamine, which binds to the histamine receptors in your body and prevents them from reacting to the histamine.
