Yep its that time of year again for pollen allergies to rear thier heads in the form of hay fever. One good remedy is to take local honey over a period of time. Local honey, produced from local flowers can help build up a resistance to pollens in your own area.
Another good idea to try is homeopathy. There are many different brands out there and depending on the severity of symtoms will depend on the dosage needed. A good health food shop should be able to advise you on this.
While I always advocate trying alternative remedies first, at the same time, if the symtoms are affecting your day to day functioning, then you may need to visit your GP who may prescribe stonger medication.
One thing to remember, the symptoms usually lessen as time goes on and as we get older unless you have an underlying issue such as asthma or eczema.
