Survey from Nelsons Pollenna™ reveals the impact hay fever has on our social lives.
Summer brings with it an exciting buzz of activity. Longer days, warmer evenings and the onset of the holiday season means that there are many outdoor activities to look forward to once we’ve waved goodbye to winter. However for a quarter of those surveyed it also signals the start of the dreaded hay fever season.*
A recent survey** by Nelsons Pollenna has revealed some of the obstacles hay fever sufferers encounter – and coupled with some of the symptoms of itchy eyes, runny noses and bouts of sneezing fits, it’s easy to see why some hay fever sufferers struggle to embrace the summer!
According to Nelsons Pollenna survey over a quarter (29%) claim they are more likely to cancel an engagement when suffering from hay fever.
Similarly, just under a quarter (23%) avoid outside occasions like BBQs, garden parties or sports events. Perhaps most surprisingly, just over one in ten (11%) even admitted that they are more likely to call in sick to work due to their symptoms.
For those that suffer from hay fever, there are ways to help relieve the symptoms, including taking an over the counter product like Nelsons Pollenna#. Nelsons Pollenna is a homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of hay fever and other symptoms of allergic rhinitis, such as sneezing, itchy eyes, blocked and runny nose. It is non drowsy and suitable for adults, the elderly and children over 12 years. Nelsons Pollenna costs £5.80. #Always read the label.
