“And people who have hay fever know how to manage that, so not a cause for panic, the situation will improve.”

According to the NHS, some alternative measures for managing hay fever include: applying Vaseline around your nostrils, wearing wraparound sunglasses and showering and changing clothes after being outdoors.

A Boots official said: “There are a very small number of lines that are currently out of stock due to a current, industry-wide shortage of the active ingredient.

“However, we are expecting this to be resolved soon and new deliveries are expected in the coming weeks.”
