Have I a Cold or an Allergy?

The common cold can often be confused with Hayfever because they cause similar symptoms. However, a cold normally lasts for around week. Sneezing, a streaming nose and itchy eyes, which persist for a few weeks, may well be due to Hayfever. Allergens can also trigger asthma symptoms: tight chest, shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing.

Hickey’s Pharmacies hold Inaugural Supervising Pharmacist Conference

Hickey’s Pharmacies held their inaugural Supervising Pharmacist Conference entitled Embracing Change in the Morrison Hotel Dublin on the 11th April. Hickey’s recognised that in the hussle and bustle of working in busy pharmacies, it can be difficult for pharmacists to ‘raise their heads’ and look to the future. The purpose of the conference was to give their Supervising Pharmacists an insight into future pharmacy trends and to encourage them to take an active role in shaping the future.
