Ironically as I have sat down to write this it is sweltering and they are mowing the grass outside. There seems to be pollen everywhere, my eyes are itching and I keep on getting asked if I’m okay as it looks like I’m crying. Summer, you can’t live with it and you sure can’t live without it.
I have been a long time Hay Fever sufferer which you may have noticed from some of my previous posts. It can become highly annoying at times, the constant sneezing, itchy eyes, sore ears, and heavy feeling in the front of the face is not nice. Like 85% of the UK I often self-medicate, so an app like Hay Fever Relief is something that has really come in handy for me.
The Hay Fever Relief App is the brain child of leading UK allergy expert Dr. Paul Carson and his son Paul Carson. Dr. Paul Carson has been involved in allergy management for 30+ years, so he really knows his stuff. He has written six popular health books dealing with allergy problems, including one on Hay Fever.
How does it work?
The app works by allowing users to explore 3D imagery of the nose, eyes, ears, sinuses and chest. By doing this you can see what happens during a pollen allergy crisis. You choose your targeted area, it gives you specific information for that area with a look inside and then the app recommends you the best course of treatment. It’s a very visual app that has very minimal text, keeping the information to the point.
This isn’t the only feature the app has, you can also use it to check hay fever allergy symptoms as well as the pollen count in numerous places around the world. It also gives handy self-help tips, advice on Hay Fever & Asthma, when pollen season is across the globe and a handy treatment guide.
These have come in handy for me, especially the treatment guide as it has made me aware of what certain medicines do and how to use them properly. I also love that you can take a further look at what your symptoms are and what’s causing them. I find it so interesting, like a mini science lesson.
The best thing about the app is it’s completely free to download! So what are you waiting for? Head over to the App Store and get downloading!
