Hayfever is an allergy to small particles called pollen. Plants including flowers, tress and grass produce pollen, which is often carried on the wind.
When pollen enters the body, the immune system overreacts and releases a chemical called histamine in an attempt to remove it from the body. This histamine causes the symptoms synonymous with hayfever, such as itching, sneezing and watery eyes.
While hayfever usually lasts from March through September, different types of pollen are present at different times during these months. Due to this, how long hayfever symptoms last differs amongst the population.
Understanding when your symptoms develop can indicate the type of pollen you are allergic to. For example, tree pollen reaches it's peak during the months of May and June, while weed pollen is highest during July and September.
Your doctor can help you determine the kind of pollen you are allergic to. Knowing when you are most likely to experience hayfever symptoms can be useful in sourcing the right antihistamines to reduce or prevent your symptoms.
Piriton blocks histamine receptors to prevent histamine from binding to them and causing allergy symptoms.
It usually works within 30 to 60 minutes of being taken. If you plan on going out somewhere, you should consider taking Piriton between 30 minutes to an hour before you are due to set out.
Piriton contains chlorphenamine maleate which is a sedating antihistamine. Therefore, it can make you feel drowsy after it is taken.
Piriton can also be used to combat the effects of more serious reactions including angioneurotic oedema (swelling of the tongue, throat, lips, and eyes), as well as being used to subdue the itch of chicken pox.
Due to its drowsy effects, you should avoid driving vehicles or operating machinery after taking it until you feel it is safe to do so.
