4 Tips To Cope With Hayfever At Night

4 Tips To Cope With Hayfever At Night

1 in 4 of us suffer from hay fever in the UK, which can make snoring worse throughout peak hay fever seasons, April and May.

To tackle our sneezing and snoring, we've teamed up with Katherine Hall, a psychologist in sleep from Somnus Therapy, to provide tips that are set to help the 42% of the British population who snore, along with how to manage allergies that make snoring worse, as this year is set to be one of the worst for allergy sufferers.

Why is hay fever worst at night?

Hay fever sufferers can often feel the effects worsen at night, and this is because, during the day, hot air rises and carries pollen within. When the air cools, pollen falls back down and onto surfaces that you may come into contact with that cause trigger hay fever symptoms.

Here are our top tips for coping with hayfever whilst you sleep!

How can you sleep better with hay fever?

Use an air purifier

At night, dust, pollen, and other pollutants remain. Using an air purifier at night can minimise the impact of allergies, especially in the spring and summer months.

Keep pets out of the bedroom

Pets may not seem like something you’d commonly link to snoring issues; however, there is a link there. Snoring may result from allergies and can be caused by flakes of skin that pets shed, which worsens respiratory problems. It’s recommended that pet owners try to keep their fur babies out of the bedroom!

Dust furniture and vacuum regularly

Keeping on top of cleaning in your bedroom will help to keep allergies at bay, with carpets, bedding and dust on surfaces contributing to snoring, sneezing and other reactions to air pollutants.

Sleep with your head slightly raised

Pollen allergies can cause your nasal passages to become inflamed and swollen, making it hard for you to breathe through your nose, so people are more likely to snore. By sleeping with an elevated head, it can decrease the amount of nasal congestion that can be caused by allergies. Use an extra pillow to keep yourself propped up for a comfy night’s sleep.

How do you cope with hayfever?

We hope that our useful hayfever tips will help you to stop snoring at night, but did you also know that your pillow could be a cause of snoring as well? Make sure to sleep comfortably and safely with a new pillow, not only relaxing but hypoallergenic as well.
