Hay Fever Management

Are your hay fever symptoms bothering you? Based on your individual needs, there are different management options available.

If you are aware of what allergens trigger your hay fever symptoms, it may be possible to reduce hay fever symptoms by simply staying away from what causes the problem - avoiding the allergen!

For example, pollen sufferers can wear face masks when going outside, seal their home against outside air and stay indoors.1

There are also a range of medication options, for example, antihistamines, decongestants and intranasal corticosteroids. The medications vary in the way they work to reduce hay fever symptoms2.

Speak to your healthcare professional about what may be the most appropriate management plan for you.
