Skin irritation is not unheard of if you suffer from hayfever I’m afraid, although the severity can vary on the type of skin you have. For example, hayfever sufferers often sometimes exhibit eczema symptoms too which can mean that during the hayfever season they experience flare-ups where their skin becomes increasingly drier, itchier and inflamed.
Even if you don’t suffer from eczema, it’s still possible your skin may become more sensitive during this time which is why I always recommend trying to get ahead. Keep an eye on the pollen count in your area and start to take preventative measures before the beginning of the season. You could try our Pollinosan Hayfever Tablets, which are indicated not only for hayfever symptoms, but also allergic rhinitis.
Try to minimise your contact with pollen – don’t keep the windows in your home open during the day and make sure you’re changing your bed sheets regularly so pollen isn’t lingering in your bedroom - for tips, please see my blog, 'How can you protect your skin during the hayfever season?'
When it comes more specifically to your skin, I’d recommend applying our moisturising Neem Cream which is not only extremely hydrating, but can also help to soothe irritation and inflammation too!
I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions.
