Allergy UK says ineffective management of serious hay fever is a key factor in the increasing number of hospital admissions for asthma:
Asthma is rarely addressed in the management of hay fever, even though allergic rhinitis can impact hugely on this chronic life-long disease, resulting in asthma attacks and in the most extreme cases, hospitalisation and even death.
In an age of ever greater healthcare advances, it is simply unacceptable that hay fever is not more appropriately treated.
