With World Allergy Week taking place this week (22nd to 28th April) and an estimated 20% of people suffering from hay fever in Ireland, it is an ideal time to highlight what help is on hand for sufferers.

Normally associated with summer, the hay fever season can begin in early Spring and continue until late Autumn and can have a huge impact on the lives of those with an intolerance to tree and grass pollen.

Nasal Medical Allergy Filter is a drug free allergy prevention solution that prevents allergens and polluted air entering the nasal system and help sufferers enjoy the outdoors without enduring the debilitating symptoms of hay fever.

Developed by Martin O’Connell, it’s a discreet personal filter, anatomically engineered to fit discreetly and comfortably just inside the nose.

Dr Paul Carson, a well-known allergy doctor and founder of Allergy Ireland in the Slievemore Clinic Dublin has conducted clinical trials of the allergy filter.

“We have found that the Nasal Medical Allergy Filter is a simple but effective way of preventing allergens entering the nasal system, therefore reducing the symptoms associated with hay fever.”

The Hay Fever Relief App developed by Dr Carson is another valuable tool in helping sufferers to combat hay fever.

This App provides live pollen updates both in Ireland and in the UK, sending push notifications when the pollen count is high in the users’ area, therefore alerting people to know exactly when to use their Nasal Allergy Filter.

“Being a drug free solution, our filter is especially of interest to those who can't take medication for their allergies, such as pregnant women,” commented Mr O’Connell.
