Ask an allergy specialist about hay fever as pollen counts are about to skyrocket

People with hay fever could be having a bad week, with very high pollen levels forecast for that week.

It could mean more sneezing, coughing and itchy eyes for the estimated 10 to 30 percent of UK adults affected by this allergic reaction to pollen.

For those with hay fever, spending time outdoors when the weather warms up is often accompanied by symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, and headaches.

With grass pollen already in peak season, many may have already seen these familiar symptoms return.

Forecasters said many parts of the country could experience very high pollen counts this week – which is not news that people with hay fever welcome.

Fortunately, we have an allergy expert on hand to answer all of your questions about hay fever and how to deal with its pesky symptoms.

Margaret Kelman, Allergy UK Allergy Nurse, will be on hand to answer questions from readers.

Maybe you would like some expert advice on how to deal with symptoms as hay fever sufferers prepare for very high pollen counts this week?

Or maybe you’d like to learn more about the claim that the ongoing ‘pollen bomb’ is causing some of the worst hay fever symptoms some people experience?
