If you are suffering from asthma, then you are at great risk of catching hay fever due to massive pollen explosion. The explosion is speculated to continue for a few more days. Also, in various parts of UK, officials have released warnings for high pollen levels this weekend.
If you're a fellow hayfever sufferer, THIS provides the biggest instant relief for me. Obviously speak to your docs about it first – don't just buy it. Made a bit of an OT vid about this a little while ago – hope it helps: https://t.co/QqZOulE07K #hayfever pic.twitter.com/5da1uXNoYa

Studies show that breathing inhaling hot air can cause the airways to narrow, which can lead to shortness of breath and a bad cough. Moreover, there are chances for the number of pollutants to increase due to hot air. Also, the mould in the air can create issues for asthmatic patients.
