Managing Allergic Rhinitis (hay fever)

Woman Sneezing

It’s spring and for lots of Australians that means managing allergic rhinitis (hay fever)  

Hay fever is a condition that affects about one in five Australians. However, very few people see their doctor to find out how to manage it best.

Hay fever symptoms can cause an itchy or runny nose (clear and watery), sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, a blocked nose, snoring at night, and the need to clear your throat because of mucous dripping from your sinuses to the back of your throat. The most effective treatment is a nasal spray and non-sedating antihistamines. Saline sprays and sinus rinses can also help. You can read more about hay fever management on our website.

Speak with your doctor or clinical immunology/allergy specialist about the best treatment for you. Ask about immunotherapy treatment in preparation for spring 2021. You can read more about allergen immunotherapy on our website. You may also like to watch our webinar with Professor Connie Katelaris who talks about allergic rhinitis and allergen immunotherapy.
