Hayfever has dramatic effect on sufferers' performance at work
The weather's hotting up and so it the pollen count! The downside of these sunny days is that workers could lose an average of three hours a week due to hayfever symptoms, according to a new survey.
Researchers for Clarityn Allergy found lack of sleep from symptoms sees half of sufferers losing between one and three hours sleep a night, and one fifth of those surveyed lost up to three hours of work a week due to lateness from all that tossing, turning and sneezing. One in five reported being unable to concentrate for the majority of the day.
Zest says: Follow the advice from GP and Zest expert Dr Rob Hicks. 'Keep bedroom windows closed to prevent pollen from settling on duvets and pillow. Pollen sticks to clothes and hair, so strip off as soon as you get in the door - put clothes into a plastic bag and place in the washing machine, so you don't waft pollen around the house. Then take a shower,' explains Dr Hicks.
