I get really bad hayfever in the grass pollen season but Ive also had it really badly this last week. Has anyone else got bizarre early hayfever.

Perfume
Shower gel
Fabric softener
Carpet cleaner
Etc etc

I had a patient mention their was playing up this week. Sometimes it's certain trees and maybe with the unseasonably warm weather it's causing them to do something early. Or leaf mould?

I had to take a tab yesterday. Weird.

I had a look on the met office website once. I understand the only month of the year with no pollen is December. I sneeze all year round. Welcome to the club!

Leaf mould might be a good shout - warm and damp

Mine is always worse in winter! I expect it’s the heating and dust

Most hayfever sufferers also react to house dust, and mould.

There is some random pond weed that pollinates this time of year that I am allergic to!

Grasspigeons Tue 14-Jan-20 20:13:42

I just feel my house is dusty equally all year grin

Me!!!! Since last month, maybe? I keep looking at the pollen count and it says low, but I am most definitely having HF symptoms. It has been unseasonably warm here, too.

The catkins are out.

SmellMySmellbow Tue 14-Jan-20 20:22:15

Another allergy. I had hayfever all my life, then at 38 suddenly developed cat and dust allergies and god knows what else. Symptoms the same, of course.

It's leaf mould. This windy and damp weather plays havoc with me!

mumsiedarlingrevolta Tue 14-Jan-20 20:24:20

DH just said his has been awful today.

no idea why but it's miserable.

Andahelterskelterroundmylittle Tue 14-Jan-20 20:25:30

I thought I was getting a cold but it was the dry scratchy nose throat and sneezes of hayfever!! Yes tree pollen starts now - since it's been so mild I guess it's like an early Spring

Hazel catkins are fully out releasing pollen and birch well on the way.

Grasspigeons Tue 14-Jan-20 20:32:05

I'm glad im not alone

QueenofLouisiana Tue 14-Jan-20 20:32:25

Mine started this afternoon. Very odd.

whiteroseredrose Tue 14-Jan-20 20:34:25

DS gets an allergy from moss apparently

Judashascomeintosomemoney Tue 14-Jan-20 20:36:51

There’s Tree pollen around in January.

Likethebattle Tue 14-Jan-20 20:37:48

Aw here we go again.....I was really bad last summer. This year I’ve noticed perfumes affect me, I had to leave superdrug a few weeks ago as I couldn’t stop sneezing next to the perfume counter.

ItsJustTheOneSwanActually Tue 14-Jan-20 20:41:40

i have it all year - possibly dust related.

it's -25 and covered in snow where i am grin

User260486 Tue 14-Jan-20 20:43:25

Yes, my child had it since last week- we could not understand why as the symptoms usually appear late March and go away in September. Never had it in January before. Very unusual. Good to know that it is probably something in the air rather than the allergy getting worse.

I've been suffering the past few days too
