Spring has sprung, and that means so has hayfever season. Whilst there’s no cure for this seasonal allergy, there are some helpful remedies that work hard to stop symptoms in their tracks. Want to know which hayfever treatments to invest in? Here are our pharmacist, Daniel Zhou’s expert recommendations…
