If you are not really dealt with, so the upcoming months will be terrible for the Danish pollenallergikere.

It assesses the professor and senior physician at the Allergicentret at Odense university Hospital, Carsten Bindslev-Jensen.

“If it is not properly treated, then it can be really bad,” he says, and adds:

“Also, there is the problem with covid-19 for the time being. And so, people can perhaps be difficult to distinguish between ordinary hay fever and covid-19.”

For most pollenallergikere is, according to Carsten Bindslev-Jensen no problem to distinguish between the two things, but since there are every year several thousands of new danes, who gets allergies, then it may possibly be hard for them to distinguish, as it may show up as both the host, sneezing and colds.

“Your surroundings by maybe not even that just talk about hay fever, and so can you even imagine how others will look at, if one sits and sneezes, cold and quite red around the eyes,” says Carsten Bindslev-Jensen, and continues:

“So fleeing people the from one.”

It is estimated that there are up to a million pollenallergikere in Denmark, which will be affected in the course of the so-called pollensæson, which runs from the start of april and until the middle of august, and that each year 5,000 to 10,000 new, that gets it.

Carsten Bindslev-Jensen stresses, however, that there is a significant difference between having hay fever and covid-19.

even though it is called hay fever, so you get not fever.

“Headache, muscle aches and fever, which are symptoms of covid-19, is not something you get by hay fever. But you can easily misinterpret, and you can easily have both hay fever and covid-19 at the same time,” says Carsten Bindslev-Jensen.

Therefore, he stresses also the importance, as pollenallergiker is properly dealt with.
