Hay Fever and Allergy Relief Tablets
Safe online shopping starts here
Hay fever is a type of allergic rhinitis caused by pollen or spores. This is a condition where an allergen (something that causes an allergic reaction) causes sneezing,a runny nose, and itchy eyes. Hay fever usually occurs in spring and summer, when there is more pollen in the air.
The best way to control most allergies is to avoid the trigger substance. However, it is very difficult to avoid pollen, particularly during the summer months when you want to spend more time outdoors.
Antihistamines treat hay fever by blocking the action of the chemical histamine, which the body releases when it thinks it is under attack from an allergen. This prevents the symptoms of the allergic reaction from occurring. Antihistamines are usually effective at treating itching, sneezing and watery eyes, but they may not help a blocked nose.
Lots of people take cetirizine dihydrochoride tablets (the active ingredient found in Zirtek, among others, but there can be a wide range of prices, for what is effectively the same product.
