The Children’s Hayfever Guide

Hayfever can present itself in people of all ages, but sometimes it’s difficult to tell what is wrong with children when they are too young to tell us what’s wrong or when the symptoms get confused for another ailment.


Often when our little ones start to show signs of hayfever, it can more often than not appear similar to a common cold! This is due to the fact that most of the time it only presents itself with a runny or blocked nose. However, it’s important to look out for the other symptoms that can follow including bouts of sneezing, headaches, red itchy eyes or swollen and watery eyes, itchy ears, nose, throat and the roof of the mouth.


So now that you can identify the symptoms, what can you actually do for your little bundle of joy? Well, that’s where we come in. We have put together the ultimate guide on products that are suitable for children of all ages, including newborns!
