Winter health Expert Clinic, Wednesday 13th October 2010, 1-2pm
If you have any winter health questions, ask Angela on Wednesday 13th October, or post a question in the forum now.
As a fulltime pharmacist, Angela has been qualified for seven years, but currently works in-store at Boots. She also trains pharmacy graduates to prepare them for their final exam to be a qualified pharmacist, and as a spokesperson for Boots she is in constant contact with a wide variety of people with regards to all things pharmacy, as well as writing articles, radio days & sometimes the odd TV interview, too.
'I love yoga, running & walking whenever I can. I love going on city breaks & absorbing new cultures, especially the food as I am a real foodie! Love all types of music, love reading (when I have time) & try to meet my friends for coffee (& cupcakes) as much as possible!'
'Follow your instinct, if you feel something's not quite right, you are probably right. If in doubt, speak to your pharmacist, if we can treat it within pharmacy we will, if it needs referral we will tell you exactly who you need to refer to.'
Any winter health queries? Non-stop seasonal sniffles? Dry skin relief? Ask Boots pharmacist, Angela Chalmers on Wednesday lunchtime about your winter worries. If you can't make it then, post your questions below now...
See you then!

As soon as the weather changes I always get a cold. I want to try to stay healthy all winter and i'm fed up with having to always carry tissues around with me... Any suggestions to boost my health before the snow comes? thank you

Winter does a number on the sensitive skin in my nose and around my lips and I always get at least one painful (and embarassing) cold sore. Are there any preventative treatments you recommend and if one does rear it's ugly head, how can I get rid of it quickly?

As it's got colder I seem to be suffering with a horrible eye irritation. My eye gets itchy, watery, very red and a bit puffy and it's particularly bad when I'm in my bedroom - so when I go to bed at night and again in the morning.
My flatmate thinks it's because there's damp in my bedroom, can you be allergic damp, or mold spores? and if you can what should I do?

So Angela will be starting her expert clinic any second, so get those questions at the ready, and she'll try to get as many answers to you all as possible. Have fun!
