The early spring cold weather held the early pollen count low during March.  But the warm weather that has followed during April and May has resulted in an increased amount of pollen. This is likely to be causing misery for anyone with hay fever or asthma.

Allergic rhinitis is a common problem in the UK, affecting approximately 20% of the population, with 80% of people with asthma having nasal symptoms as well as asthma. Many of these patients are likely to be contacting you for help with their symptoms.
