Hay fever season is here
The start of British summertime sees most people fleeing to their nearest beer garden and throwing BBQs for anyone who’s available. But for those who suffer with hay fever, the season can be bittersweet.
What is hay fever?
The official name for the condition known as hay fever is allergic rhinitis, and it causes symptoms similar to those of a cold; a runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing and congestion. But while the common cold is caused by a virus that tends to stay in the body for 3-7 days, hay fever is caused by an allergy and lasts as long as you’re exposed to the thing causing it.
