Allergies and asthma
Did you know you’re more likely to have hay fever if you have asthma? Although around one in five people in the UK have hay fever (an allergy to pollen which causes a blocked or runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes), it’s much more common among people who have asthma. Around four in five people with asthma also have hay fever.*
We can help if you live with allergies including hay fever, as these can trigger a flare up of asthma and other symptoms. We have a range of products that you can use alongside your prescribed asthma or COPD medications, that can help manage your condition and its symptoms.
If you have recently been diagnosed with asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), or have been living with it for some time, it can be overwhelming when you are prescribed a new medicine to help manage your condition. It’s important that you follow any advice given to you by your GP, but you can also find advice from both, your local pharmacy and online. Whether you need a helping hand managing your medication or you want to find out what could be triggering your symptoms, we can provide expert advice and give product recommendations that suit you.
For anyone who has an allergy induced asthma, it’s important to know what causes symptoms whether that’s pollen or dust mites. Once you learn what triggers your asthma it’s easier to avoid these things and you can put steps in place to look after your wellbeing.
