With a pollen bomb set to hit the UK this summer, see our tips below on reducing the effects of hay fever on your eyes, throat and nose.
What is a pollen bomb?
A pollen bomb isn’t as devastating as it sounds with the right preparation.
It is a sudden release of pollen from trees and plants than increases the
pollen count in the air, usually occurring in Spring and Summer. This can
have irritable effects on people who suffer from hay fever.
Check the pollen count
Another simple way to avoid hay fever is by checking the weather forecast to
see the predicted pollen count. We’re not recommending you spend your entire
summer indoors hiding from pollen, but you can plan you daily activities when
the pollen count is lower.
