Action point


Do you wake up in the middle of the night sneezing? It can be due to “pollen rain”. During the day hot air makes pollen rise into the air, and at night, when temperatures fall, the pollen drops back down.

Keeping your windows closed at night is therefore essential. Taking an antihistamine before bedtime will also help ensure you get a good night’s rest.
