Hayfever Season

23:52 26 September in Family Practice News

There is currently a large amount of pollen shedding from Pine trees, those with the misfortune to be allergic are suffering, as there has been little wind to disperse it. You can see this as a thin film of “dust” on cars and window sills.

Cromwell Family Practice can provide prescriptions for anti-allergy medications, as well as cortisone injections that are very effective. A cure is available with desensitisation injections. Stop by to see us for expert advice, it is often cheaper to see the doctor and get prescriptions, rather than buying your own remedies!

Pollen forecasts can be found on the Metservice website
