Leeds, England (June 05, 2010) – Pharmacy2U, the UK’s pioneering dedicated online and mail order pharmacy, comment on the growth of hayfever cases over the past year.
While hayfever has been a common problem for many people for decades now, Pharmacy2U believe that 2010 has seen an increase in the amount of people suffering. Many experts believe this may be down to cooler temperatures that have delayed grass growth, which is what prompts the allergic reaction in 95% of hayfever sufferers. However, as temperatures have risen this year, grass has received a growth spurt, which may have increased the pollen count – which is bad news for the 12 million or more people who have hayfever, a figure which has grown by more than four times in the past 50 years.
Internet chemist Pharmacy2U, retailer of hayfever medication including Benadryl and Piriteze, have seen a 45% increase in their hayfever medication in the past year, which is proof of a drastic increase in allergy sufferers taking medication, and indicates an overall raise in the number of sufferers.
“While hayfever has been a huge problem for many people over the years, this increase in our sales shows that more people than ever are feeling the effects, and are seeking relief,” said managing director, Daniel Lee. “While warmer temperatures will have an effect on the pollen count, there is still conflicting evidence that people’s allergies could be worsened by unhealthy modern diets, not coming into contact with as many germs and bacteria as we used to, and global warming gradually increasing the pollen count. People need to find the best treatment, and at Pharmacy2U, we have a wide range of hayfever medication which will ensure that people can get more enjoyment from the sunny weather, without suffering such powerful allergic reactions.”
