This weekend’s extremely high pollen count has seen sufferers go to extreme lengths to avoid being housebound – and it includes using a tube of Vaseline.
For those who get hit badly bydreaded hay fever and have used all the tricks in the book – including antihistamines – there could be a simple solution, reports The Mirror.
Those severe suffer,,ers may have decided to lurk indoors this weekend as a safer option while everyone else frolics in the sun without a care in the world.
Hay fever is so much more unpleasant than simply sneezing more than usual. It’s the itchy eyes, the fatigue, the scratchy sensation in your throat and your face puffing up.
However, according to social media users, all that can disappear with a pot of Vaseline.
So how can Vaseline (or petroleum jelly in general) help?
Many people who find themselves knocked for six by hay fever have sworn by Vaseline.
What they do is they app,,ly a layer around the insides of their nostrils as high as possible.
Yes, it might look – and even feel – a little weird, but it’s a much better alternative to the effects of hay fever.
Twitterusers have been vocal in their delight at this simple remedy.
As remedies go, it’s a lot less painful thanrubbing stinging nettles on yourself, and it’s a lot more practical thanhaving sex.
