Allergic rhinitis (also known as Hayfever) is a type of inflammation that occurs when the immune system reacts to allergens in the air. Typical symptoms include itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing and itchy throat/ears.
In most cases, over the counter remedies are effective at reducing symptoms.
These are available from your local pharmacy including, non-sedating antihistamines (e.g., fexofenadine, cetirizine, loratadine), nasal sprays and eye drops.
If these treatments fail to control symptoms and hay fever is severely affecting quality of life and ability to work optimally, FaceKind offer consultations for an alternate hay fever treatment.
If you suffer with severe hay fever symptoms and have tried oral and topical medications with little improvement, get in touch to arrange a consultation with our Pharmacist Prescriber to discuss your suitability for our hay fever treatment.
Please note, patients will be sent a consultation form to assess medical history, eligibility and will be given relevant information about the medication, (including how the drug works, side effects etc) before the treatment is offered.
