Hay Fever Treatment

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

Hay fever is complex, but
the soluton can be simple

It's the kind of hay fever that sticks around despite your best efforts. You may have given over-the-counter pharmacy products a chance, including natural remedies and even acupuncture. You've probably used remedies you’ve found online or have been suggested by friends. These may be effective for some people, but right now nothing seems to be working for you, right?

It’s simple. Go and see your doctor.

In recent consumer research, 53% of people had never consulted a doctor or their hay fever symptoms1. So is it time to try something different?

A doctor is best equipped to assess and treat your symptoms quicker, more accurately and more reliably than anything you’ll find online.
