Professional Services

Spring has sprung and for some people, that means allergy season! Allergic rhinitis, or hayfever, is one of the most common allergic conditions and affects 1 in 5 people in Australia. It’s caused by the body’s immune system reacting to common substances. Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, runny nose, as well as itchy nose, throat and eyes.

For some people, symptoms can be worse in a particular season. Seasonal allergies are usually caused by pollens, grasses or plants. Persistent rhinitis affects people all year round and is often caused by dust mites, moulds or animals.

A number of effective treatments are available. Non-drowsy antihistamines are available over the counter and are useful for mild, intermittent symptoms but for more persistent symptoms, a preventative approach should be considered, like a steroid nasal spray.
