The birch pollen season is ongoing. On Thursday, we collected 1613 grains per m³ air in Brussels. The threshold of 80 grains per m³ air has largely been exceeded. People allergic to this type of pollen should be careful and follow their doctor’s advice.

A few useful recommendations for allergic people:

  • Avoid outdoor activities
  • Wear sunglasses
  • Shower and wash your hair regularly
  • Use paper handkerchiefs so they can be thrown away
  • Do not dry your linen outside
  • Keep closed your car's windows
