Allergy goes on

At the end of summer those with hay fever can sigh with relief, however our thoughts then turn to what the coming seasons might hold in the way of health issues. Allergens such as house dust mites, weed pollens and moulds, as well as indoor pets, are still likely to provoke sensitised allergic rhinitis. A gentle douching of the nose after close contact with these allergens can still help to reduce symptoms.
