Hayfever is a deep-seated condition, which requires constitutional treatment from a qualified homeopath as the remedies above will just manage the symptoms. Orthodox medical treatment can manage the condition with powerful drugs that have a number of harmful side effects but constitutional homeopathic treatment over two or three seasons may cure the condition completely.
