Leading Australian interior designer and The Block judge Darren Palmer has dealt with his own hay fever symptoms for many years, and is kicking off GSK’s Hay Fever Help campaign to encourage others get on top of their condition before spring is in full swing.

People with hay fever can visit www.HayFeverHelp.com.au to check the daily pollen prediction, watch Darren’s video (see below) and find out more information. They can also join the conversation on social media by using #HayFeverHelp.

Darren has shared his experiences suffering with hay fever for the campaign, saying: “As an interior designer and renovator, I’m around a lot of dust and mould which really sets off my hay fever.

“Even pollen from certain trees around my studio can trigger a runny nose or itchy, red eyes. It can be really disruptive to my schedule, particularly when I’m renovating or in the middle of filming.”

“Like a lot of people I know, I attempted to self-manage my symptoms with over-the-counter options when it affected me. I didn’t realise that a GP would be able to help me better manage my hay fever longer-term.

“I’m hoping to encourage other people with hay fever to visit their doctor this spring. No one wants to be slowed down by hay fever.”

The campaign has also been launched off the back of recent research, which found that people’s social interactions, romantic relations, work productivity and self-esteem are negatively impacted by hay fever.

It will run until the end of September.
