Well you’re not alone. 20% of the Australian population suffer from seasonal allergic rhinitis also known as hayfever.
A lot of patients will self medicate with over the counter medications but did you know only 85% of people make the right choice?
Symptoms can be managed effectively with either an antihistamine, nasal sprays, nasal rinses or a combination. Be sure to avoid any triggers such as pollen which in Queensland can be all year round but reaches its peak from January to March. For patients who have severe or prolonged symptoms more specialist treatment will be advised.
If you are affected with symptoms and need help with managing come by and see me in clinic.
Happy Heatwave UK: How to Get Ready for the HOT Weather 💖
Happy spring to all my UK friends who are about to have a long heatwave 🌞🇬🇧😎
Enjoy the beautiful weather and remember to stay sun safe. Use sun cream regularly (at least spf30) and avoid basking in the sun for long periods of time between 10am - 3pm when the sun is the strongest.
