I am 38 weeks pregnant, is there anything I can take to help with hayfever?  Cold face washer is not doing the trick, my eyes have red rings around them. Thanks.

  • Oh you poor thing….I was like that and went to see my Doc…its so long ago now i cant remember what he gave me but it was brilliant. From memory it was just a nose spray but it helped me so much. Call your Doc…they should be able to slip you in to see him/her or perhaps your Doc would be wonderful enough just to write you a script or even suggest what you could get from the pharmacy.

  • Glad you are feeling better and I just want to wish you well with your birth, best wishes and happiness to you and your family.

  • The cucumber sliced on the eyes is doing wonders thank you. I have even been applying amolin cream. Its like because I am pregnant my face cant cope with hayefever. The red rings around my eyes are still there but it at least feels better.

  • Two helpful answers ..also put some Vaseline up each nostril when out side as it traps the pollen and dust, then give your nose a gentle blow and apply more Vaseline.
    Also maybe a talk to your chemist or GP is in order.
    Best of luck and wishing you well.

  • I used to suffer terribly with hayfever and sinusitis, the best thing I can suggest is a saline nasal spray.

  • Hope this helps a bit – my mother inlaw suggested fresh cucumber sliced put on your eyes and lay down & relax for a bit. I tried this when I was pregnant with number two and gave some relief from the red itchy eyes.
