How it works
Hayfever affects approximately 15% of the Australian population, according to the 2007-08 National Health Survey.1
Symptoms of hayfever include red, watery and itchy eyes, usually occurring in response to an allergy to a substance such as pollen or animal dander.2
Eczema is an example of another type of allergy, resulting in inflamed skin.2
