Home Ground Pharmacy
Suffering from hay fever? Our team at Home Ground Pharmacy is here to offer support and relief for those who find themselves battling the pesky symptoms of seasonal allergies. As the seasons change, so do the challenges for individuals sensitive to pollen. In this blog, we’ll explore the ins and outs of hay fever, its symptoms, and most importantly, how our dedicated team at Home Ground Pharmacy can assist you in managing this common allergy.
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is an allergic reaction to pollen from grasses, trees, and weeds. It commonly occurs during the spring and summer months when pollen levels are at their highest. For many people, hay fever can be a significant disruptor to daily life, causing symptoms such as sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, a runny or blocked nose, and fatigue.
Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and some individuals may even experience exacerbation of pre-existing conditions such as asthma. It’s essential to recognise these symptoms early on and seek proper guidance to manage and alleviate them effectively.
At Home Ground Pharmacy, we understand the impact hay fever can have on your daily routine. Our team is committed to providing comprehensive support to Swindon residents dealing with hay fever symptoms. Here’s how we can help:

NHS Pharmacy First Scheme: We are proud participants in the NHS Pharmacy First Scheme, which means you can access hay fever tablets through our pharmacy. This scheme allows you to receive necessary medications directly from us, saving you time and ensuring prompt relief from your symptoms.

In addition to our services, there are several practical steps you can take at home to minimise the impact of hay fever:
Stay Informed: Be aware of pollen forecasts in your area. Knowing when pollen levels are high can help you plan outdoor activities accordingly.
Avoid Triggers: Identify and try to avoid the specific pollen triggers that affect you the most. This may involve staying indoors during peak pollen times or using protective measures like sunglasses to shield your eyes.
Maintain Cleanliness: Regularly clean your home to reduce the presence of pollen indoors. Keep windows closed during high pollen seasons, and consider using air purifiers to filter out allergens.
Use Hay Fever Medications: Take advantage of the NHS Pharmacy First Scheme to access hay fever tablets that are effective in managing symptoms. Our team can guide you on the right medications and offer tips on their optimal usage.
Hydration and Nutrition: Stay hydrated and maintain a balanced diet. Proper hydration can help ease symptoms, and a healthy diet can contribute to overall well-being, potentially reducing the severity of hay fever symptoms.
