Pollen season is in full swing

For one in five Adelaide residents with hay fever and/or asthma, pollen season can be a time for sneezing, itchy eyes and shortness of breath, which can escalate into a serious health risk.

To help, Asthma Australia has kicked off the seasonal Pollen Count for Adelaide, reporting the past 24 hours of grass pollen levels at 11am daily on this webpage asthma.org.au/pollen-monitoring/.

The Pollen Count provides valuable information from which you can make informed decisions about your condition.

The best way to control hay fever and asthma is the regular use of preventer medicines such as nasal sprays and asthma inhalers, prescribed by your doctor alongside a written asthma and allergy action plan.
