If spring announces the return of sunny days, the season is accompanied for nearly one in three French people with allergies to pollen. More specifically, 30% of adults are affected and nearly 20% of children according to the National Health Security Agency (ANSES).
In general, the majority of patients protect themselves from hay fever with an antihistamine. They may also call for symptomatic treatments such as corticosteroids. All require prior consultation with a doctor or at least the advice of a pharmacist. Desensitization a few months before the allergenic pollen peak period can also be considered by health professionals.
Runny nose, headaches, sneezing, irritated eyes… To relieve symptoms in a natural way, very simple remedies also exist.
