Clinic Notice Board

  • Allergy season about to commence with August Tree Pollens. The allergy season was quiet in July, with cold and wet wintery conditions reducing outdoor environmental allergens, but pets and house dust mite allergens increased during winter when more time is spent indoors.   This August month, we will see mould spores increase and then the tree pollen season gets underway, initially with Cypress followed by Oak tree pollen. Then in October, grass pollens which will be most prevalent in the air and can cause very debilitating hay fever and rhino-conjunctivitis.
