Hay Fever (allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis)

Symptoms from hay fever can be relentless and teenagers with severe disease run a 50% risk of dropping a grade in their GCSEs if they have bad symptoms. This can be made worse by not being on newer medications and bad cases of hay fever can also affect asthma control, too. Specialists can help by diagnosing which allergen is driving the symptoms and offering advice on avoidance and treatment.
