    Treating severe hayfever

    Summer is here and while this is brilliant news for many of us, it’s not such good news for hayfever sufferers. If you have severe hayfever, the spring and summer months can be particularly challenging. Fortunately, there are some ways of treating severe hayfever.

    If you’’re suffering at work, make sure you notify your employer, so that they can take steps to help you. All UK employers are required to enforce health and safety measures to prevent accidents at work and ensure their workforce is able to operate in a safe, secure environment.

    Treating severe hayfever

    Hayfever is a common allergy which causes you to develop symptoms in the spring and summer months.

    Hayfever is an allergy to grass and pollen, which usually results in itchy, irritated eyes, an itchy, runny nose, sneezing and an itchy throat. In some cases, hayfever can also cause headaches, tiredness and a reduced sense of smell.

    Treating severe hayfever usually involves taking antihistamine medication. This form of treatment works by blocking the action of histamine, a substance which is released by the body as part of an allergic reaction.

    In some cases, treating severe hayfever may involve different methods. If you’’re treating severe hayfever, eye drops, nasal sprays, and even immunotherapy may be recommended.

    If you suffer from persistent hayfever and other methods haven’’t worked, immunotherapy may be the best solution. This form of treating severe hayfever is offered in specialist centres and involves injecting a very small amount of the allergen into the skin or taking a tablet, which dissolves underneath the tongue.

    Hayfever in the workplace

    If you’’re at work, severe hayfever can make your day a struggle. You can help to reduce symptoms by wearing sunglasses or a protective mask, keeping windows closed, and taking medications with you. If you work outside, ask your boss about using protective equipment, such as goggles and masks.

    Take care when operating machinery if you have taken antihistamine medication, as it may make you drowsy.

    Some work-related illnesses are impossible to prevent, but in other cases, employees sustain work injuries through no fault of their own. If you’’ve been injured at work, and you believe that your employer was negligent, you have the right to claim work accident  compensation.

    If your work accident happened in the last three years and you have proof that you were not to blame, call Accident Advice Helpline now to find out more about making a work injury claim.
