Ahhhhh, Spring!! It’s a wonderful time of year! After enduring a long and cold winter, warmer weather has finally sprung.

Springtime typically also marks the beginning of seasonal allergies such as hay fever; an immune system response characterised by runny noses, itchy eyes and constant sneezes. If you struggle with eczema and asthma all year round, these ailments are also likely to worsen during this allergenic period.

When springtime triggers, such as grasses and pollens, are released into the air, you may experience common symptoms such as:

  • Itchy eyes and nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Dark circles of puffy eyes
  • Itchy throat or ears
  • Ear congestion
  • Postnasal drip
  • Headaches
  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Hives or itchy skin
