Having hayfever, whether you’re an amateur or a professional sportsperson, such as the famous athlete, Marlon Devonish, who suffers particularly badly, means having to endure symptoms that can seriously inhibit both performance and enjoyment. Hayfever and sports aren’t the best companions; the prospect of exercise or training isn’t very attractive if you're sneezing and your nose is running.
This is also true for sporting events held in the countryside, as these situations expose people to the very pollens or moulds that they're trying to avoid, and often result in tiredness, lethargy and generally feeling fed up – not a great recipe for success!
Every sportsman needs an edge to help them achieve their goals and those who suffer with seasonal allergic rhinitis, appreciate how limiting and draining it can be during training or an important match. Sufferers have always had to learn to manage their symptoms and using anti-histamines isn’t often the best option, as the drowsy side-effects experienced can often impact on both performance and stamina.
However, there are several ways for sportspeople to combat their hayfever during this challenging season, even when the pollen count is unbearably heavy:
If you are an amateur sportsperson, you can choose your sport according to the season; and substitute indoor hockey or badminton for outdoor tennis or football, during the hayfever season. Or you could use an indoor exercise bike when pollen counts are high.
If you're a runner, athlete or cyclist, plan an alternative route for training that avoids places where pollen counts are high.
Pollen counts are lowest during midday, so if you have to train outside, this would be the optimum time to do this.
Take over-the-counter or prescription medication before training outdoors, to help prevent hayfever symptoms from developing during the training period.
Or use a non-drowsy hayfever pollen barrier such as HayMax™ Aloe Vera, which helps to prevent the symptoms of hayfever and works by helping to trap the pollen before it enters the respiratory system. It is safe for sports professionals to use, as it is completely drug and chemical-free.
