If you live in England and have mild to moderate hayfever, you may now have to pay for allergy medicines including antihistamine tablets instead of getting them on prescription.
With the hay fever season about to start, you may be starting to think about how you’ll cope with your symptoms if you have asthma and/or an allergy to tree or plant pollen.
According to the NHS the number of people who believe they have a food intolerance has risen dramatically over recent years. And to muddy the waters even further, some claim to have a food allergy, when what they really mean is they have a food intolerance. So how can you tell the difference between the two?
As the pollen count rises, drivers with hay fever are being urged to be more aware of how their condition may affect them. According to health charity Allergy UK, one in three people in the UK has hay fever, many of whom get behind the wheel with a runny nose, itchy eyes and constant sneezing.
