The sudden hot weather due to hit Southern England and London this Easter weekend will act as a massive stimulus to grass and trees to pollinate and erupt with a very high pollen release called a “Pollen Bomb”. This will be most unpleasant for Allergic Rhinitis and Hay Fever sufferers, and they should start taking antihistamine medication immediately to try and control this event and their allergic condition. Symptoms will include profuse sneezing, eye and nose itching, together with nasal congestion, blurred vision and a very runny nose. Some people may experience asthma-like symptoms with wheezing and a tight chest. Be prepared and stock up with antihistamines such as cetirizine, loratadine or chlorphenamine all available without prescription form a pharmacy.
