    I get cold like symptoms every summer. Sore, dry throat, blocked sinuses, coughing & sneezing. Generally feeling tired & unwell. My GP said hay fever & gave me cetirizine tablets, I have Loratadine tablets prescription aswell. Avamys nasal spray prescription is used with these too. I took your online test it said, not hay fever result. I think because I clicked, no to headaches. The symptoms I have makes my asthma a lot worse,, so the medications do help.

      Hayfever and cold symptoms are very similar and it can be very confusing. Hayfever and asthma are closely linked as you are aware. It is good that the medications control the symptoms for you. If your immune system is weak it could contribute to your hayfever symptoms. You could try taking Vitamin C is good for the immune system, as it has natural antihistamine activity in the body and there is some evidence that it can help control hay fever symptoms .

      Hello Chelsea, The symptoms of a cold or an allergy are very similar. However, a cold has a shorter duration. As the root cause is different, you may wish to consider the herb Echinacea for a cold. However, the Pollinosan Hayfever tablets or/and Pollinosan Nasal spray as these products can help tackle Hayfever or allergy symptoms. These symptoms tend to last a bit longer, especially over the summer months. Consider A Vogel Eyedrops to soothe itchy eyes, as well.

What you eat can have a dramatic effect on your hayfever symptoms. While anti-inflammatory and natural anti-histamine foods can help control your symptoms, foods containing dairy and foods rich in sugar can actually make them worse.
