Struggling with Hayfever?
There are things you should do;
- Clothing/towels/bedding should be dried indoors
- Wear a hat and sunglasses when outside, and when possible shower and change when you go back indoors
- Keep bedroom windows closed at night (the pollen rises with the hot air during the day and comes back down with cooler air at night)
Visit the Pharmacy;
- Nasal Steroids are the most effective treatment for hayfever but need to be used consistently and correctly
- Saline Nasal Rinse has also been shown to help
- Over the Counter Antihistamines can help some people as can hayfever eye drops
The Pharmacist can advise you on brands and prices
If all these measures are being used consistently they should offer some relief. However if you are still continuing to really struggle or if you are wheezy, them please contact the surgery for help.
Wearing of Face Masks
We respectfully request that patients who have pre-booked appointments with any of our nursing staff wear a suitable face covering when they attend the surgery to protect themselves and our staff. Thank you.
