Dr. Mitra on Hay Fever

Spring is here and so many people start getting symptoms of hay fever. Hay fever is allergy to pollen. Common symptoms include a runny and itchy nose, blocked nose, sneezing, itchy and watery red eyes and an itchy throat.

Hay fever is diagnosed by the doctor or nurse taking a history of the typical symptoms of hay fever.

Common treatments include antihistamine nose spray, antihistamine tablets, steroid nose spray and eye drops. Your local pharmacist can supply these for you.

You can also limit your exposure to pollen by staying indoors and keeping windows and doors shut or by wearing wrap around sunglasses when you are out.

If things do not improve please call the surgery.
