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
Baical skullcap: traditionally used for hayfever relief in TCM
Baical skullcap relieves mild allergy symptoms in healthy adults, according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), as well as symptoms of hayfever including red, itchy eyes and a runny, blocked or itchy nose.
Baical skullcap also traditionally soothes skin inflammation and symptoms of mild eczema, according to Chinese medicine.
