Tips for coping with hay fever

Although hay fever is often thought of as a mildly irritating illness, anyone who has ever suffered from this allergic disease will know that this is not the case. Sore throats, runny nose, sticky, itchy eyes and sometimes breathing difficulties can all make seasons of high pollen, a misery. At Pearl Chemist, we offer a range of treatments for the whole family to help you cope with hay fever. Don’t wait any longer, buy allergy and hay fever tablets today.

What is Hay Fever?

Hay fever is a type of allergic rhinitis. It is a type of inflammation resulting from the body seeing pollen as an allergen and therefore mounting an immune response to it. The resulting symptoms can be very unpleasant, and at times debilitating. Some people will also get allergic conjunctivitis and allergic asthma as a result of high pollen counts. People suffering from hay fever are often keen to find the best allergy tablets to combat the symptoms.

Treatment of Hay Fever

Anti allergy tablets, or antihistamines, are the usual first line treatment for hay fever. Taken once a day, they help reduce the symptoms of allergy, making you feel more like your usual self. At Pearl Chemist, we stock Piriton allergy tablets, and also stock Piriton allergy syrup for babies and children.

Piriton is a brand of antihistamine that is well respected. It contains chlorphenamine which reduces the body’s production of histamine and therefore reduces the symptoms of hay fever. It is important to note that Piriton can make people feel drowsy, and if this is the case, you should avoid driving or operating machinery.

At Pearl Chemist, we also stock loratadine and cetirizine anti-allergy tablets. Cetirizine may be preferred by some people as it is a non-drowsy antihistamine. Finding the best hay fever tablets can be a personal choice.

Anti-allergy tablets are taken every day for hay fever when the pollen count is likely to be high. In the UK, this is usually during the summer months but can occur at any time in the year depending on which type of pollen you react to.
