5 top tips on how to help hay fever

Contains sponsored links¦ It has been estimated that around 16 million people in the UK suffer with hay fever. That’s at least 1 in 4 people! That means that a quarter of the population spend seasons of the year, often summer, with unpleasant symptoms. These can range from annoying to a level where they affect everyday life.

Unfortunately, the number of sufferers is rising, particularly in those who are middle aged. In fact, it has been predicted by Allergy UK that there could be as many as 30 million hay fever sufferers in the UK by 2030.

Ehlers-Danlos and Joint Hypermobility syndrome

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, according to many sources are interchangable terms. I won’t linger on that in this post, as that’s not its purpose. Whatever you want to call it, not many people are aware of what it is and what it can entail. Whilst many people are hypermobile, EDS and JHS are a whole different kettle of fish and can bring joint pain and a whole plethora of other problems. Joints may dislocate, the sufferer may have stretchy skin and/or bruise easily and may have problems with their bowel or other organs.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my blog, it’s that although I may be an introvert, I can still get my voice heard. So far I have helped people by sharing my problems with anxiety and breastfeeding after Autumn fell seriously ill , as well as my postpartum body confidence issues. I have also written a post about my husband’s trichotillomania. As such, I thought I’d also use it to try and spread awareness of EDS/JHS this EDS Awareness Month!

Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect

When I was offered the chance to review Sudocrem Care & Protect cream, I was intrigued. I’ve only used normal Sudocrem before and found it brilliant. It’s been around for over 80 years. In fact, my mum used it on my brother and I when we were babies and swore by it. I’d been using it for spots for years before I used it on Autumn’s nappy rash. Recently, she’s been teething and this seems to have made the nappy rash situation worse!
