It is vital that all patients should continue taking asthma or allergy medications and in the current crises this cannot be stressed enough, to help keep respiratory function at its best.
Immunotherapy – we are advising all of our patients that it is important to continue with all the immunotherapy medications. We are still able to offer advice on immunotherapy and we are arranging deliveries so that all of our patients can receive their immunotherapy.
Prescriptions – We are also able to provide you with a prescription.
For those of you who are suffering hay fever due to tree and grass pollen allergies, pollen counts are high and many patients already are suffering from symptoms of hayfever. We can continue to provide remote consultations and care if you are suffering from hayfever.
These high pollen level counts can also trigger symptoms of asthma. We are offering consultations for management and evaluation remotely. It is extremely important that patients continue to take their hayfever and asthma medications. Low dose inhaled steroids and intranasal steroid sprays should be continued as should antihistamine medication. These medications are safe to use despite covid-19 and it is far more important that hayfever and asthma remain under excellent control. Low dose inhaled steroids, antihistamines and pollen immunotherapy do not supress the immune system and can be safely continued.
Some patients with active hayfever symptoms might also suspect they have covid-19 infection, as there is some overlap of symptoms. If you have temperature, muscle aches and an altered sense of taste or smell, this is more suggestive of covid-19.
