I'm a sufferer myself and it really depends on what pollen is about as to what symptoms I get...
Sometimes it's just an itchy nose (like it wants to sneeze but can't?)
Other times I get sneezing fits (that one caused me to run in the back of a car a couple of years ago!)
Around this time of year I get stuffy sinuses, headaches, sore/itchy eyes and usually a sore throat too (can also make my skin itch all over when the kale/oil seed rape fields are in full bloom).
Weird part is that I only developed this about 10 years ago after moving from the countryside in Lancashire to Luton... Since I moved back the symptoms have slowly abated somewhat.
My daughter sometimes sneezes to the excess and has asked if there is anything I can do to help her, should I think about antihistamines or let it just run it's course as it's just manic sneezing rather than the more serious sides of it?
Best advice I can give here would be to ask your pharmacist
I can't see that it'd do any harm to buy a pack of over-the-counter antihistamines to try though (that's how I nailed down the fact that I have hayfever, I got stronger ones on prescription later).
