As someone who sneezes quite regularly, it has become somewhat of a joke that I’m allergic to life. When I was at work I would joke that I was allergic to work in the hope that one of the doctors would agree and send me home – of course, they never did (worth a shot).
Allergies are, however, not joking matter especially for those who suffer from them. Those suffering from hay fever are often mocked when they complain about it as those who have never suffered from it think that it is just a few sneezes and maybe the odd rub of the eyes. Hayfever , however, can really make your life miserable and force you to become a prisoner in your own home in order to minimise the exposure to grass and tree pollen.
Throughout the year I continue to sneeze, it is, however, the spring and summer months that I tend to suffer more as hay fever takes hold and my eyes begin to itch, the tears stream down my face and my nose start to run (I’m painting a beautiful image of myself). Over the years, I have tried many different remedies, although many of them make me drowsy which means I am unable to drive and I worry about my ability to look after the children so put up with my symptoms instead.t includes natural plant extracts that work as an antioxidant, to help with itchy eyes/running nose and general wellbeing/sensitivities
Recently I was recommended to try Pycnogenol Supplements, they include natural plant extracts that work as an antioxidant, to help with itchy eyes/running nose and general wellbeing/sensitivities. As is a plant-based treatment I am more willing to try this to see if makes my spring and summer more bearable.
Do you suffer from allergies?
