Rise in hayfever

2nd July 2008

Experts say that Britain is experiencing a surge in hay fever symptoms.

The rise has been caused because of a late tree pollen season coinciding with the grass pollen season. Pharmacists at Boots say the pollen season started later and means that many consumers are only now experiencing symptoms of watery eyes, runny noses and nasal congestion. The charity Allergy UK now believes one in four people are affected by allergies at some point with pollens from trees and grasses the most common.
