Did you know you don’t need to see your GP for hay fever treatment? 

 

 

Hay fever and seasonal allergy treatments such as tablets, eye drops and nasal sprays are all easily available at low cost from your local pharmacy – no prescription from your GP required!

 

Antihistamines are usually the best treatment for hay fever and these can easily be bought from local pharmacies or supermarkets. Buying a packet of 30 tablets can cost as little as £2, but if a patient goes to their GP to get a prescription then it costs the NHS considerably more. 

 

By going to the pharmacy you’ll be saving yourself time and money, freeing up GP appointments for people with more urgent needs as well as doing your bit to help the NHS save money on unnecessary prescription costs. 

 

Top tips to help ease hay fever symptoms:  

  • Keep house and car windows closed, especially when the pollen count is high (early morning between 7am to 9am and evenings between 5pm and 7pm) 
  • Avoid large grassy areas, woodland, cutting the grass and car fumes 
  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses 
  • Use petroleum jelly inside your nose to block inhalation of pollen 
  • Don’t dry washing outside to avoid pollen sticking to your clothes  
  • When you get in from outside wash your hands, face, hair, rinse your eyes and change your clothes.
