Yeah or neah???

Saw it advertised at a local spa and ad says it's great for alleviating hayfever symptoms. Does anyone have any experience of having it done?

No!!

Beconase and anti histamines/ local honey/ Vaseline up your nose.

Stay away from hocus pocus things you sick in your ear.

grin Beconase and anti-histamines are not cutting it! I will stick some vaseline up there too.

The GP can prescribe a stronger nasal spray .

Steaming helps .

I will need to go to GP. The hayfever season just seems to be getting longer and longer - i'm pretty much just miserable now from May until September. Grrrrr. Thanks Dame. flowers

Urghhh, that's awful. I had it wickedly at the beginning of the season but I'm ok now. Eyes were dreadful though I could barely see!!
