It’s that time of the year again. The flowers are blooming, the trees are plush and green and the smell of cut grass fills the air. It smells amazing, everything is fresh and new. Unfortunately for too many people this time of year is far from pleasant and spells the start of allergy season.
The last few week the pollen count in the UK has been incredibly high and a lot of my friends and family have been suffering with hay fever. It is particularly unfortunate at this time when we are in the midst of a pandemic, still under fairly strict lockdown rules and getting out and about in nature is one of our few pleasures.
Hay fever is the most common respiratory allergy. Specifically, it’s an allergy to pollen, the fine powdery dust from grasses, trees and weeds. It is a type of allergic rhinitis, an inflammation of the tissue lining the nose.

A little bit about Klarify:
A young company with an old soul
We’re just getting started, but our history is rich: our parent company, ALK, has been researching allergies for almost 100 years and pioneering breakthrough allergy innovations since 1923.
We know a lot about allergy – and we want to share that knowledge with as many people as possible. We’re using our expertise to make klarify.me the source of some of the world’s best allergy relief products and services.
The home allergy tests test for up to 280 allergens, I’ll be honest I had no idea there was so many! I vaguely remember being a child with asthma and a constant cough and having pinprick tests at the GP which I hated. So the idea of being able to test for that many allergens at home is certainly appealing.
Here is what Klarify have to say about allergy testing:
What is allergy testing?
Allergy testing may help you to find out which triggers might be causing your symptoms and to rule out others. Having the right information can help you to better manage your allergy.
An allergy test can show an indication of your triggers. It is not a diagnosis. Only a doctor can give you a diagnosis of allergy. Any allergy test has to be interpreted alongside your unique medical background and your symptoms.
Is allergy testing worthwhile?
We believe allergy testing can make a difference. We want to give you the information you need about allergy testing so you can make the right decision for you.
Once you have the results from your allergy test, you’ll have a better idea of what you could be allergic to. And then tackling your allergy symptoms becomes simpler.
The results from your allergy test can help determine exactly what triggers your symptoms. Which then means you’re set up to take measures to avoid those substances. And most importantly you’ll be able to get the most suitable treatment for your allergy.
