Nature is blooming, and it is very dry. Climate change is making the pollen season longer and longer. Bad news for hay fever sufferers, many of whom suffer from pollen from grasses and trees. Especially now, because soon the question arises: is this a pollen allergy, flu or are you sick of a new coronavirus? Or is it something else?
The table below shows when the pollen appears. Birch (April), flowering grasses (May-September) and the mugwort weed (July-August) cause the greatest nuisance.
About one in five people suffer from hay fever. “It’s a hypersensitivity reaction to something your body shouldn’t react to.” The frustrating thing for those who suffer from it is that there is little that can be done about it.
