Why getting tested will make a difference

#1 Get your medication in time

If you know what you are allergic to, you can check when those pollen hit the air and get your medication in time.

#2 Know when to stay indoors

Providers like meteo suisse not only offer a daily pollen radar but also a forecast. If you know which pollen will drive you into a sneeze-attack, you can check and schedule your outdoor time accordingly.

#3 Know which locations to avoid

Thinkung about moving? Check the trees in front of your new window and make sure they will not make you cry for three months of the year. Issues at the office? Maybe there is a tree outside your window. Ask your boss to move desks.

#4 Figure out possible treatments

Knowing what you are allergic to can help you figure out possible treatments. For example, for a lot of hayfever-causing pollen, there are now oral treatments for immunotherapy - so you could potentially cure your hayfever without lots and lots of injections!

How you can treat hayfever

  • Symptom management
  • Immunotherapy

Hayfever medication for symptoms

If you have hayfever, there is a good chance, that you are already familiar with the wide array of pills, nose sprays and eye drops available to manage your hayfever symptoms. The most common medications are so called anti-histamines. To understand how they work you have to understand that hayfever is basically a faulty reaction from your immune system to for example pollen. Anti-histamines work to suppress this reaction of your immune system. There are anti-histamines which work locally - for example as a nose spray - and pills which work systematically across all your symptoms. Older versions of these pills tended to make you really tired, but newer ones don´t - so make sure to get the right ones!

Immunotherapy for long-term hayfever treatment

If you have hayfever, your immune system - erroneously - reacts to allergens from the plant kingdom like pollen.
 
With immunotherapy, you train your immune system not to do that anymore. That means, you intentionally expose your body to the respective allergen in the form of tablets or injections for over around 2 to 3 years. If all goes well, that will actually cure your hayfever or in the very least drastically reduce your symptoms. While it takes some time, it is definitely worth giving it a thought since over time, hayfever can get worse and even lead to aasthma.
