COMMON HAY FEVER
Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 Australians
suffer hay fever'? Feeling congested and
blocked up isn't fun, but there are measures
you can take to ease the symptoms of hay fever
and allergies. Our pharmacist Anant Kalpathy,
has shared his tips on helping you get through
this season feeling a little clearer.
Hay fever is the common term for
"allergic rhinitis", and is caused by
the immune system's response to
environmental allergens, creating
a number of chemicals including
histamine'. It can cause the nose,
eyes, throat and sinuses to become
swollen, irritated and inflamed.
There are two types of hay fever:
SEASONAL: common in spring,
summer and early autumn when
pollen count from grass, trees and
weeds is high in the air.
Runny or blocked nose
Itchy skin and eyes
Coughing to clear throat
As a pharmacist, I'm often asked what is the
best product to treat hay fever... but often the
most effective relief can come in the power
of two or more complementary therapies
combined. I've found the best way to treat hay
fever is with a dual therapy approach – such as
a corticosteroid nasal spray combined with an
antihistamine tablet for high pollen or breakout
days. For milder symptoms, an antihistamine
tablet or an oral decongestant may be enough,
but I still always recommend a saline nasal rinse
to clear out the nasal passages.
V Pollen (ie. flowers and grass)
PERENNIAL: can be experienced
year-round. Triggers include pet
hair, dust mites and moulds, with
symptoms often worsening at the
beginning of pollen season.
Here are my tips to help prevent hay fever:
Try using a saline nasal rinse daily
• Check pollen count before leaving the house
• Avoid common hay fever triggers, where
• Wash your hands after touching animals or
therapies to treat hay fever, as each are formulated to target
different hay fever and allergy symptoms. Speak to your
pharmacist about what dual support is right for you.
smay suggest combining two or more complementary
• Avoid rubbing irritated areas as it
CORTICOSTEROID NASAL SPRAYS
Considered the most effective treatment, these provide fast relief from
allergy symptoms, such as itching, irritated eyes, runny and blocked noses.
Follow pharmacist advice on dosage, as nasal sprays can cause rebound
nasal congestion if used more than 4-5 days
Your local TerryWhite Chemmart pharmacist is
always on hand to talk to you about your hay
fever and discuss dual therapy solutions that
may work for you.

These reduce or block histamines, relieving symptoms of different types of
allergies, including seasonal (hay fever), indoor, and food allergies.
ANTIHISTAMINE EYE DROPS
Similar relief to oral antihistamines, these block histamines in the body and
quickly reduce symptoms like itchy, watery eyes.
Decongestants reduce nasal congestion and sinus pressure. Oral decon-
gestants are less effective than intranasal decongestants, but won't cause
rebound nasal congestion.
Natural salt water (saline) nasal sprays clear nasal passage congestion and
can wash out allergens (ie. dust, pollen).
