Top 10 Remedies: Homeopathy for Hayfever

Do you ever experience persistent cold-like symptoms that just won't resolve? Itchy eyes, runny nose, watery eyes and constant sneezing that can significantly disrupt your daily life. This could be hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis. Hay fever affects a significant portion of the United Kingdom's population, particularly during the spring and summer months.

What causes Hay fever?

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne particles, most commonly pollen. Pollen is a fine powder released by trees, grasses, weeds and other plants in early spring as part of their reproductive cycle.

When someone with hay fever inhales pollen, their immune system mistakenly identifies it as a harmful substance. Then triggers an allergic response causing hayfever symptoms.

Topical Treatments and Home Measures to Prevent Hayfever

To prevent hayfever symptoms at home, consider using the following topical treatments and measures:

Nasal Saline Spray:

Use a saline nasal spray to rinse out allergens from your nasal passages.

Barrier Ointments:

Apply a bit of petroleum jelly or a barrier ointment around your nostrils, near upper lip, to trap pollen. This stops it from getting into your nose.

HEPA Filters:

Use air purifiers with HEPA filters in your home to reduce airborne allergens.

Shower and Change Clothes:

After spending time outdoors, shower and change clothes to remove pollen from your skin and hair.

Keep Windows Closed:

Close windows and use air conditioning to keep pollen out of your home.

Wear Sunglasses:

Wear wraparound sunglasses when outdoors to protect your eyes from pollen.

Clean Regularly:

Dust and vacuum your home regularly to remove pollen and other allergens. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

Wash Bedding Frequently:

Wash bedding in hot water weekly to remove allergens.

Dry Laundry Indoors:

Dry laundry indoors rather than outside to prevent pollen from sticking to your clothes.
