The next period can be difficult for allergy sufferers, because dry, warm weather can intensify the allergy symptoms – said allergist Kristóf Nékám.

Even minimal pollen production in a heatwave can exacerbate symptoms such as inflammation of the nasal mucosa and the environmental effects of irritating the lower respiratory tract are also intensifying The doctor emphasized.

Kristóf Nékám said: a strong pollen season is expected; grass pollen in the coming weeks, and in the second half of July, weed pollen, such as ragweed pollen, spreads intensively.

According to surveys, the number of people with allergies has doubled in the past five years, and today 30 to 40 percent of the population produces allergic symptoms, the allergist said.
