Asthma or hay fever? What are the symptoms?4 July, 2018
Research by charity Asthma UK shows many people with asthma often confuse their symptoms with those of hay fever. This confusion is a serious problem as sufferers could be putting themselves at increased risk of a potentially fatal asthma attack.
So how do you know if you’ve got asthma, hay fever or both? Well, to help you understand, we’ve created a list of the top five symptoms:
Symptoms of asthma
- Tight sensation in chest
- You may find your reliever (often blue) inhaler stops working
Symptoms of hay fever
- Runny nose
- Watering red eyes
- Itchy throat, nose and ears
Sadly for sufferers, hay fever often makes asthma symptoms worse, however the good news is that you can dramatically reduce hay fever symptoms with the Kenalog injection; ideal for those who don’t respond to antihistamines or nasal sprays.
