Spring is in the Air!

Do you suffer from hay fever?

For 3.1 million Australians, Spring marks the start the start of the dreaded hay fever season!

Most of us know that hay fever is neither caused by hay, nor does it cause a fever – the correct name is ‘seasonal allergic rhinitis’.

Hay fever is caused by seasonal exposure to pollen. Flush with grasses and wide open spaces, West Aussies are among the worst hit by hay fever each year!

The reaction to hay fever is caused by the body’s immune response, resulting in chronic inflammation of the eyes and nasal passages.

Common hay fever symptoms include:

A runny nose or a blocked nose
An itchy nose
Itchy and watery red eyes
An itchy throat
Less common symptoms include:

Loss of smell
Face pain

Luckily, hay fever can be beaten or successfully controlled in almost all cases. XERGIC is a great product used to relieve the symptoms of hay fever such as sneezing, itchy, watery or red eyes, and itchy, blocked or runny nose.
