HayMax Kids Has Arrived!
If you’re a parent to one of the 30% of UK kids with hay fever, you’re probably all too aware of the nasty symptoms; blocked noses disturbing sleep, sneezing fits, itchy eyes and watery snot that never seems to stop running in the summer months.
Skip to tips (helping kids with hay fever)!
Hay fever is an allergic response to otherwise harmless pollen particles entering the body. The body thinks that the pollen is a dangerous substance, and so reacts by releasing histamines which cause those pesky symptoms. For some kids, the symptoms are mild and for others they can be truly debilitating -studies have shown that hay fever symptoms can even cause kids to drop a grade at exam time .
We’ve been listening to parents and kids for over a decade, and one question which keeps popping up in store and online is, ‘is it suitable for kids?’ To make it super simple for parents and kids to recognise HayMax as the perfect pollen blocker, we’ve created something just for kids! We’ve designed some fun, superhero themed packaging which both boys and girls of all ages will love. They can even take it to school and self-administer.
The simple allergen barrier balm has been proven to trap over a third of pollen before it enters the body  , as well as dust mite and pet allergens – nice bonus!
Denise Ahmed is a fan! “I now apply the balm every night, which has been extremely useful to Yahya. It has resulted in a peaceful sleep and a happy toddler – and a happy mum and dad too!
The balm is very easy to use; I just wipe a small amount around the rim of both his nostrils with my little finger. And it pretty much starts to work instantly. As well as applying it every night before bed, I have started introducing it during the day too, especially if we’re going out. You only need a tiny amount each time, so although it is a small pot, I consider it very economical as it goes a long way.
It’s a small price to pay, as Yahya is able to sleep soundly at night and we have our happy little toddler back. I would recommend HayMax to any parent; anyone in fact. It’s a great product to try before exploring the drug route.”
You see, avoiding the allergen is the most important part of any allergy management plan! If there’s less allergen (pollen, dust mite, pet dander) in the body, then that means less allergens which might trigger a nasty reaction. It’s simple really!
As well as using HayMax Kids, there are lots of simple, practical actions which can be helpful. Here are our favourite tips from parents, kids, Allergy UK and personal experience.
