Millions are facing the worst hay fever “pollen bomb” for almost 50 years this Easter.
Sufferers will be in “sneezing hell” as the pollen count suddenly leaps to extreme levels.
Max Wiseberg, of HayMax products, said: “The hay fever season peak has been delayed, while recent mild and wet weather has encouraged growth. Now the sun is coming out, there will be plenty of pollen.”

The Met Office warned of “very high” pollen levels in the south and Midlands tomorrow, with medium levels even in the north as temperatures approach 20C this weekend.
A Met Office forecaster added: “Pollen levels are rising as we near the peak of the tree pollen season. Very high levels are likely.”
The National Pollen and Aerobiology Unit, based at the University of Worcester, said: “Birch pollen will rise to a high risk, with ash pollen at a moderate to high risk.”
Three in 10 Brits suffer from hay fever, but the rate is almost four in 10 among teenagers, the NHS and Allergy UK said.
