My two boys have Hayfever, and their symptoms are worse now than earlier in the summer! Sneezing and sniffing all over the place!

It's driving me nuts! I've had no problem all year but in the last few weeks it has been building up to today where my eyes have exploded along side my nose.

This started when I came up to my bedroom - window was open all day. Coughing, wheezing, runny nose.

Looked it up and it's WEED POLLEN and is very high today, according to the Met Office, and it's due to continue all week at high.

Weed pollen is about for all of September.

Ah thank you curviest people were looking at my streaming red eyes suspiciously I had to explain that I wasn't in floods of tears and that it was hayfever only for them to raise their eyebrows even more and say 'at this time of year?!'

It could also be mould spores
