🌷With spring comes pollen and seasonal hay fever, which can cause some symptoms similar to COVID-19 symptoms.
While they may share some symptoms, there are key differences:
▪️Hay fever does not usually cause shortness of breath unless a person has a respiratory condition, such as asthma that can be triggered by exposure to pollen.
▪️Hay fever causes watery and itchy eyes, as well as sneezing, which are not symptoms of COVID-19.
▪️Hay fever symptoms can change depending on the time of day due to pollen levels.
▪️COVID-19 can cause fever or chills, which is not a common symptom of hay fever.
Symptoms of hay fever and COVID-19 can vary from person to person and range from mild to severe.
ℹ️If you know you routinely experience hay fever, talk to your GP about starting preventive medication early in the season, before symptoms occur. This will help to prevent or decrease your symptoms.
👩⚕️Talk you to your GP if you are unsure if your symptoms are related to hay fever or if your symptoms differ from previous experiences. ... See MoreSee Less
