Hay fever is usually worse between late March and September, especially when it’s warm, humid and windy. This is when the pollen count is at its highest (pollen forecast).
Check if you have hay fever Symptoms of hay fever include:
sneezing and coughing a runny or blocked nose itchy, red or watery eyes itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears loss of smell pain around your temples and forehead headache earache feeling tired If you have asthma, you might also:
have a tight feeling in your chest be short of breath wheeze and cough Hay fever will last for weeks or months, unlike a cold, which usually goes away after 1 to 2 weeks.
