I've developed hay fever symptoms in the last few years and I was never bothered by it before.

Hubby and i over the last few years seem to have developed hay fever, we both feel like we are getting a cold and get big sneezing fits but the cold just doesn't come out. Both our families tho have asthma/bronchial/ eczema/problems.
Our daughter developed hay fever in the 1980,s when she lived in Germany. The farmers used to put a concoction of human and animal excrement on their fields for compost!! the smell was horrendous and daughter developed her allergy from then.

OH has to use the SIMPLE range of soaps etc otherwise he gets a severe skin reaction. i can only use Ariel washing tabs and Lenor condtioner.anything else causes a big skin problem for him

I had a few years of allergies,big-time hay-fever (oil-seed rape) and potatoes were the worst.Then they all seemed to tail off.I can only conclude that it was one of the many joys of the menopause.
