Hay fever sufferers are used to being afflicted by itchy eyes, runny noses and headaches when the summer temperatures rise. But this year, despite the inclement weather, the condition is affecting people who have never seriously experienced it before.
Dr Adrian Morris, Adult and Children’s Allergy Consultant and fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, said: “We have had a period of changing weather, from very hot days to torrential rain, so the pollen from the grasses has gone into overdrive.
“People who are mild hay fever sufferers, and may only have previously felt itchy noes for example, never thought it was an issue until now because of the high pollen count recently.”
